NEW! Taste of Tradition 

Coed, Entering Grades 5-10

At Fairview Lake YMCA Camps, we believe that a multi-week stay has a deeper impact on campers, allowing them to develop friendships and community, learn new skills and develop independence. Taste of Tradition was developed to help campers transition to a longer stay by immersing them in the culture and traditions of Camp Laurel Ridge and Camp Kittatinny.  If your child is new to sleepaway camp, and you are looking for a program to help them transition to a longer stay, Taste of Tradition gives them a perfect starting point.
