Community Events

The best part about camp is sharing it with our friends and neighbors! At Fairview Lake YMCA Camps we have developed special events held throughout the year to promote family, friendship and fun through outdoor experiences for our community. These free or low-cost events bring together everyone for afternoons of exploration and growth through meaningful activities. Come out and play and make Fairview Lake YMCA Camps your home away from home! For more information, contact Matt Lifschultz.

SUPER FRIENDS!

Join us for a great evening of making friends and having fun. This program is designed for people with special needs and their families – with camp activities, games, adventures and experiences that will create amazing memories for everyone.
