Respite Weekends

The respite weekend program provides outdoor recreation, fun and friendship in addition to community inclusive activities for children and adults with disabilities.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We know many of you are anxious to hear news about our off-season weekend respite programs. We are disappointed to have to share that we are canceling our usual fall respite weekends due to the continuing concerns about COVID. We are holding out hope that we can return to weekend respites in the early winter or spring. Be sure to keep an eye on the Camp Fairlee website for the most up-to-date news about respite and other programs.

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.
