Camp Anne

Camp Anne in New York offers a structured, yet relaxed, atmosphere for children and adults who function in the moderate, severe and profound ranges of disabilities. Campers enjoy a traditional summer camp experience: arts, boating, cooking, crafts, dance, music, nature, sports, swimming – all under careful staff direction in a fun environment in the Berkshire region.


Camp Anne has an exciting and varied program to choose from that includes traditional camp activities and specialised activity areas. Activities are differentiated according to the needs of the individual. 

Activities include:

  • Swimming at the pool
  • Boating on the lake
  • Horse riding
  • Sports such as basketball, soccer, baseball
  • Arts and crafts
  • Drama and theater games
  • Playground activities
  • Nature activities
  • Our pool was specially designed for our campers and is fenced in. The zero degree entrance to the pool is designed for people with limited mobility or individuals in wheelchairs. The pool is 4 ½ feet deep and heated to around 85F. The pool is open three periods a day and is often used on warm summer evenings for pool parties and as a launch pad for evening activities. 

    American Red Cross Lifeguards supervise activities at all times and campers always have a 1:1 buddy while in the water.

    Horseback Riding

    Camp Anne has a riding ring where therapeutic riding is available each day. Pony rides are offered by trained staff each morning and are available to all campers regardless of ability. There are also rabbits, chickens, and alpaca in the same area for the animal lovers.


    Sports and Relaxation

    Camp has excellent sports facilities. We have large and small soccer fields that we use for team sports and Olympic events, a basketball court, a softball diamond, a children’s playground with shock resistant rubber floor, swings and climbing areas. We also have a sensory room, which provides a therapeutic and stimulating environment for campers containing a ball pool, digital projector and soft mattresses.


    Evening Activities & Games Room

    Activities continue into the evening and we will be bouncing around on stage after dinner in the program building with dances, game shows, talent shows, theme days and more…

    The Program Building contains a games room for campers and counselors alike! We have a pool table, table tennis tables, foosball, air-hockey a gym and large screen television.

    Employment at Camp Anne

    Staff members will be challenged to promote the camper’s ability to communicate, interact and increase independence in daily living skills through participation in carefully-supervised traditional summer camp experiences. These include arts and crafts, boating, dance, music, nature, sports, swimming, and other camp wide events.

    If you are ready for the toughest job you’ll ever experience, and willing to give unconditional love and understanding as you work with people with disabilities, this may be the place for you to find the most rewarding time of your life.
