disABILITIES and Special Needs

COVID-19 Updates and Virtual Programming

The Camden County Board of Commissioners declared a state of emergency in Camden County in response to the global pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As a result of the declaration, all nonessential employees and personnel county-wide were asked to work from home. This declaration was amended to extend the order indefinitely keeping county offices closed until a safe end date has been determined by the Camden County Health Department.

As such, all of the ​in-person programs for Individuals with disABILITIES have ​also been cancelled indefinitely.  We will continue ​in-person programming again once it is recommended and safe to do so. ​Thank you for your understanding.  

The Camden County Department of Disabilities and Special Needs is offering online and virtual programing during this time. This page will be updated as new programming is announced. Stay tuned for more information about live-stream Camp Sunny Side sessions.  

To sign up for weekly virtual classes, contact Karen Weidner at (856) 216-2127 or email Karen.Weidner@camdencounty.com for more details.
