Easterseals Coastal Fairfield County 

Who is Easterseals?

Taking on Disability Together 

Easterseals is a national organization that provides a variety of services to children and adults with special needs and disabilities. In Connecticut, Easterseals began affiliate operations in 1935 as the Connecticut Society for Crippled Children and Adults, working primarily with field workers and occupational therapists that treated individuals with disabilities. 

In 1950, Easterseals took over the operation of a summer camp in Trumbull, which became Camp Hemlocks a fully accessible, barrier-free summer camp for children and adults with disabilities and other special needs. The camp relocated to Hebron, CT. in 1974 and has celebrated over 35 years of operation at its current site with expanded programs and services.

In August 2014, Oak Hill became the sole controlling member of Easterseals Coastal Fairfield County and Camp Hemlocks. The camp underwent a significant renovation in the Spring of 2015 and was reopened to campers for the Summer season. The facility will now be called The Hemlocks Center and will be used year round for programs and as a conference center and special event venue.
