Easterseals CAMPaign Fairlee is a community-supported effort to expand and modernize Camp Fairlee. The project included the construction of a new activity center, health center, four residential cabins, the expansion of the dining hall, and upgrades to the roads and paths of Camp Fairlee. The campaign assures camp will be around for many years to serve even more people with disabilities and their families.

Easterseals still needs to raise $230,000 to meet their $4.5M goal to complete the renovations. Donations to the campaign can be made at www.de.easterseals.org by selecting "Direct my gift to CAMPaign Fairlee.” A lasting memory at Camp can be created to honor, or in memory of, a camper, counselor, family member or mentor by selecting "Buy-A-Brick Campaign."

For more than 60 years, Easterseals Camp Fairlee has been transforming the lives of thousands of individuals and has been a lifeline for many families caring for loved ones with disabilities by offering recreation and respite care in the Delaware and Maryland region. It is the only camping facility in our region that offers campers of all abilities the opportunity for a safe and accessible camping experience year-round. Meanwhile, families enjoy peace of mind, an opportunity to rest and focus on relationships with spouses or other children, and experience activities that are out of reach in their daily lives.

Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore offers a range of services, including children’s therapies, assistive technology, recreational camping, day programs for adults with physical or intellectual disabilities, and respite services for caregivers. To learn more about how Easterseals helps children and adults with
