The mission and focus of the Fairview Lake YMCA Camps Alumni Association is to maintain relationships among the previous generations of guests, campers and staff.
Anyone who has ever come to Fairview Lake YMCA Camp for any program or attended any camp program throughout the year is considered alumni. If you want to be alumni, you are! Registration is simple, just click the link below and give us a little information about yourself.
Fairview Lake YMCA Camps hosts several special events for Alumni each year. Events focus on maintaining camp traditions, keeping alumni connected and providing opportunities for alumni and their families to enjoy all that camp has to offer.
For any questions about our upcoming alumni events or just to chat about camp, please reach out to Matthew Lifschultz by e-mail or by giving us a call at camp at 973-383-9282.
