Mission Statement

At Camphill Village, we share life: joys and sorrows, celebrations and prayers, work, play, meals, and song. Each person is encouraged to achieve his or her full potential at every stage of life.

Description

The founding of Camphill Village in 1961 was part of a transformative movement in the United States to reform how society treats people with special needs.

Instead of isolation and institutionalization, exclusion and separation, Camphill Village celebrates and honors the uniqueness, dignity and spiritual integrity of each individual, regardless of outward appearance or disability.

On 615 acres of wooded hills, gardens, and pastures in rural upstate New York, adults with special needs and long- and short-term service volunteers strive to live and work together as equals in extended families in homes throughout the Village.

A leader in biodynamic organic agriculture, our gardens and farm weave the community with the cycles of nature coinciding with and reflected by seasonal festivals.
