The noises of modern life are replaced by music and the sounds of dancers, singers and the laughter from the waterfront and other gatherings. For a week, cars are tucked away, transportation is by foot, there are no computers or TVs, and the “outside” world fades away—you are at camp!

CDSS programs at are four different and wonderful camp locations – click on one of them to find out more!


We work with facilities to make reasonable modifications for individuals requiring accessibility accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Camps are held at rustic locations, with facilities that may not offer some accommodations for different accessibility issues. Please direct requests and questions to the Director of Programs at Reasonable modifications/accommodations will be made on a case by case basis at the discretion of the CDSS Executive Director and Director of Programs.

Fragrance-Free Guidelines

In order to help create a safe environment for people with chemical sensitivities, please do not bring scented products (e.g. perfumes, shampoo, etc.) to camp. Pinewoods Camp is a fragrance-free facility, and the camp supplies unscented soap and shampoo in all bathrooms.
