Rising Treetops at Oakhurst

Rising Treetops at Oakhurst has been providing special needs services to people with disabilities since 1906.  On the same 15 beautiful acres in Oakhurst, New Jersey all these years, and after three name changes, the Summer Home in Oakhurst and Camp Oakhurst (both were what we were known as, but never were our legal names) was renamed Rising Treetops at Oakhurst in 2018. Rising Treetops maintains a reference to our core camp activities, without limiting us to those activities; Oakhurst provides a link to our historical name. The logo, a tree with entwined stylized hands for the leaves, references both our physical and emotional environment. The tag line [Inspired confidence and joy in those with special needs] communicates to those with special needs that our staff is truly commited to providing a joyous experience that will also inspire confidence for our clients.

Our Special Needs Services

While at a camp or respite session at Rising Treetops, clients enjoy daily activities including arts & crafts, music, drama, iPad-based learning, swimming, sports, cooking and gardening/nature. All our respite services and summer camp programs are designed to engage our clients and improve their skills. Clients have fun, inspire each other, have new experiences, make new friendships, and experience a heightened sense of independence.


For those with special needs, Rising Treetops is a safe haven that nurtures growth, inspires confidence and celebrates joy.
