The public is invited to experience the fun and adventure of Easter Seals Camp Fairlee, an accessible camp for children and adults with disabilities, at its 60th Anniversary Homecoming celebration from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 6. Visitors at the event will enjoy activities such as tours of Camp Fairlee, arts and crafts, swimming, a bluegrass band, a pig roast and more.
“Camp Fairlee is a place for children and adults with disabilities to explore their independence in a supportive environment surrounded by peers. In the last 60 years, we have made a difference in the lives of more than 25,000 campers,” said Sallie Price, director of recreation and respite services at Camp Fairlee. “We are excited to bring together past and present supporters of camp, including counselors, campers, and Rotarians, to enjoy a day of camp activities at the Homecoming.
In addition to the event in September, the 60th Anniversary celebration included Rotary Work Days in April when District 7630 Rotarian volunteers completed maintenance and cleanup projects at camp, Camp Fairlee Night at an Orioles game in June and Happy Anniversary Camp Fairlee activities during the summer camp season. A tribute to Camp Fairlee will take place at the Easter Seals Annual Dinner in Wilmington Wednesday, Oct. 8.
