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.


Safety Around Water!

Thursday, June 28, 2018 6-8pm

The world is 71% water, and children are 100% curious! Join us for a fun evening at Fairview Lake! We'll be learning safety in and around the water, and have opportunities for swimming and boating for the whole family. Please leave your pets at home, and if your child wears diapers, they must be in a swim diaper to enter the lake.
