Camp Fairfax

Camp Fairfax is a homegrown local camp for school aged youth going on its 14th year!  During this special time of year campers and their counselors focus on the unique aspects of our little town and each other.  This simple and old-style summer camp has changed over the years.  This summer will include 2 weeks but with a shortened schedule.   We focus on arts, the natural environment, movement, sports, and more.  We weave in teambuilding games and activities throughout each week and a highlight is our weekly Friday water play of running through sprinklers on the ballfield and balloon toss.  We place heavy emphasis on community building scaffolding age ranges so campers can learn from each other and build confidence through collaboration.  In addition, we have a variety of special circle times that happen throughout our camp including, storytelling, trust and kindness games.

Ages 6-10 (limit of 12 kids with 2 CIT’s)

Week of July 31:  Monday - Friday from 9am -3pm
