More about our camp:
Formerly United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Hartford, Inc., the new Sunrise Northeast Opportunities still retains the goal of providing a memorable and engaging camp experience for people with disabilities. Nestled in the Long Island Sound, Camp Harkness provides our campers with an experience unlike any of the other camps throughout Connecticut. At our camp, we celebrate each person’s abilities and enable our campers to participate in the same activities able-bodied campers are able to enjoy. Campers of all abilities can go to the beach, swim in the pristine waters, go boating and fishing, or explore the camp grounds themselves.
The wild, varying flora throughout the campgrounds and opportunities to interact with a range of animals gives the sense of embarking on a fantastic journey to worlds unknown. Throughout such experiences, our counselors are able to instruct our campers, showing them how the natural world intertwines to affect us all.
Opportunities at Camp Harkness is Allergen-Friendly and Special Needs Accessible.
