Welcome to Camp Fairwood!|
Introduction Nestled among the pines in central Wisconsin are 230 acres of pristine forest land, prairie fields, wildlife and a private lake brimming with fish. For 42 years God has blessed the Wisconsin Association of Regular Baptist Churchesí with a beautiful camp to be used in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others. Hundreds of people each year find at Camp Fairwood a refuge from the storms of life. Our mission is to provide an excellent Christian camping experience in which campers may come to know Christ as Savior and grow in Him through Godís Word and a godly staff. We strive to provide a loving Camp that is Christ-centered, Action-packed with Activities, filled with Meaningful Moments in a Pleasant and Peaceful setting.
Operations Camp Fairwood is a year-round ministry with eight weeks of summer camp for youth and families and about 32 retreats throughout the year. There are two full-time employees of the Camp, the director and maintenance manager. During the summer we hire about 30 staff to run our program.
Facilities There are 27 buildings on the camp grounds. Nine cabins are used year-round and sleep about 10 people each. Nine additional cabins are available for summer use and sleep 10 people each. Our most functional and widely used building is our dining hall which can seat 175 people. Our chapel is uniquely located in the loft of a barn and can also seat 175 people. We have 3 sports fields available for games, a one acre spring-fed swimming lake, a 5 acre fishing/boating lake, a rifle and archery range, basketball/volleyball courts and 3Ĺ miles of beautifully groomed walking and Cross-country trails.
Program Each day of summer camp we have two morning Bible sessions and an evening Bible chapel. We offer skill times for youth to enjoy archery, riflery, boating, fishing, and crafts. We have a one-hour equestrian program where campers enjoy riding horses on the trails of a local stable. For Junior High and Senior campers we make available the exciting game of paint ball. We also offer tubing down the Mecan River for our Senior High and Family campers.
