Keeping Kids Safe
The safety of the children who use our facility has always been a top priority of Fairview Lake YMCA Camps.
Technology has now evolved that provides instant screenings for registered sex offenders in all 50 states. Raptor, a leading web-based platform identifies unwanted visitors instantly by scanning driver’s licenses and state-issued ID’s and keeps unwanted guests from entering our YMCA. If a potential threat is identified, the Raptor system will send an instant alert to designated management staff. If necessary, law enforcement will be notified.
All guests and visitors will have their driver's licenses or state-issued ID scanned. To expedite this process, we have asked that as you register yourself or your children for our programs, you provide your name and date of birth. We will be able to run a preliminary check, which will speed up your entry into camp.
We appreciate your continued support in protecting all the children who come to our Y.

Our Commitment to Preventing Child Sexual Abuse
As a Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges Y, Fairview Lake YMCA Camps are committed to training adults to recognize, prevent and stop child sexual abuse. A staggering 1 in 10 children will be sexually abused before they turn 18. The YMCA has partnered with Darkness to Light to bring the Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention training to our communities. Stewards of Children is the only evidence-based training available nationally that is proven to increase knowledge and change child protective behavior. Our Y is working with schools, day cares, community organizations, faith groups, and more to train community members to keep our children safe. Our goal is to train 21,460 people in our community. When adults actively seek to make a difference, a cultural change can occur. We’re working to shift from a norm where child sexual abuse is kept in fear and denial and children are easy targets, to a community where every child is protected through a network of trained and aware adults.
Every Fairview Lake YMCA Camps staff member takes this training, helping to protect the thousands of children who come and visit us in all of our programs. Join us in protecting our community.
