About Fraser Lake Camp
A long, long time ago – way back in 1955 – Fraser Lake Camp was started with a mission to provide a life-changing camp community, full of growth-focused outdoor experiences! Since then, we have shared our traditional overnight camp programs with thousands of children.
Fraser Lake Camp was established by the Mennonite community, which means that we actively teach values like working together, social justice, caring for the environment, and non-violent problem solving. We recognize that our campers come from a variety of faith traditions, including no faith background, which is why Fraser Lake Camp is so committed to welcoming diversity and embracing our differences.
Regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, it is Fraser Lake Camp’s goal to make sure everyone leaves camp feeling like Fraser Lake Camp is home. This is why we place such a big emphasis on making sure our staff and campers feel welcome and accepted.
