Camp Oakhurst was awarded a grant from the Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund, a charitable fund administered by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan. The purpose of this grant is to sponsor tuition for a disabled camper in memory of Joshua Stamm, a former camper.
Camp Oakhurst, in Oakhurst, NJ, offers individuals with physical and developmental disabilities a fun-filled summer program in a place where it’s easy to participate in activities, make friends, feel accepted, and gain independence.
The Joshua Stamm Memorial Scholarship Fund was created in 2008 by family and friends to memorialize Joshua, who was an Eagle Scout with Troop 63 in Goshen, a member of the 105th Air National Guard’s Young Champions, an avid skier, music fan, and baseball player. Joshua participated in countless wheelchair road races, including several Orange Classics and the Special Olympics at West point. In short, he was an amazing young man.
The Joshua Stamm Memorial ScholarshipFund is facilitated through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, a 501(c)(3) public charity that was created to help individuals, organizations, and businesses establish charitable endowments within their community.
