About Us

Part of the worldwide Camphill movement, Camphill Village USA is the oldest and largest Camphill community in North America. CVUSA’s mission is to provide stable homes, meaningful work and a robust social and spiritual life for adults with developmental disabilities and the service volunteers who live and work alongside them. Camphill Village is an intentional community located in Columbia County, NY, approximately 120 miles north of NYC. The founding of CVUSA in 1961 was part of a transformative movement in the United States to reform how society treats people with disabilities. Instead of isolation and institutionalization, exclusion and separation, CVUSA celebrates and honors the uniqueness, dignity and spiritual integrity of each individual, regardless of outward appearance or perceived disability. Located on 615 acres of farmland, wooded hills and gardens, CVUSA is also a leader in biodynamic organic agriculture and sustainable farming techniques.
