Recreation Activities

Fair Hills has an activity for everyone.  Whether it is participating in one of our organized recreation activities, taking advantage of one of our many amenities or relaxing in the beautiful Minnesota sunshine, Fair Hills has something for you.  On land and in the water, our super summer vacationers do it all.

Fair Hills has an 92 year history of being an active family resort.  During our family weeks we offer free Sports Lessons and Scheduled Recreation Activities.  The entire day can be filled with games, family fun and the vacation lifestyle of a classic north woods summer camp. Children ages 4-8 will love the fun time they’ll have on a treasure hunt and at the carnival.  Kids ages 8-14 enjoy the water slide, torpedo rides and boat rides. Older teens and adults participate in tennis, golf, volleyball and more. All of the activities are FREE for the entire family. You’ll probably have to come back several times just to try them all!

Our qualified Recreation Staff facilitate all daily activities and take great care of all participants, not matter the age.  Parents drop off their kids and are encouraged to take the hour and a half off!  The kids are so preoccupied, they forget about their parents.  Sometimes you won’t see your kids until mealtime!

Don’t forget to bring your talent with you for our Thursday night Talent Show!
