The weekend respite program at Camp Fairlee provides outdoor recreation, fun, and friendship for children and adults with disabilities. Respite weekends provide parents and caregivers rest and relief from the 24-hour responsibility of direct care. Program activities vary depending on the age and ability of the group, but may include sports and games, nature activities, creative arts, outdoor adventure activities, field trips, and more.
Campers stay in one of seven air-conditioned cabins, each of which accommodates groups of same-sex campers and their counselors. Meals are prepared on-site and served family style in the Carpenter Dining Hall.
Camp Fairlee has been providing safe, healthy, fun, and success-oriented recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities for more than 60 years.
