  • Recreation Services
    • RWJBarnabas Health Field of Dreams provides an all-inclusive complex which has a playground and multiple other physical and cognitive environments which create and recognize everyone's right to fully participate in equitable play.
    • CSH Activity Connection includes recreation, sports, and social activities for children and teens with special health care needs. The programs provide opportunities to make new friends, participate in physical activities, and enjoy new experiences.
