About Fair Play Camp School

Fair Play Camp School, Inc. is located in Oconee County in upstate South Carolina. Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this property of over 500 acres is graced with several creeks and a huge variety of plants and animals. This camp has become a sanctuary for many boys over the years. We provide outdoor therapy to boys from ages 8 to 15, who are experiencing behavioral and/or emotional problems and who agree to placement because they have a desire to change.

Fair Play Camp School’s primary objective is to teach boys life skills. Our approach to helping a boy change his behavior is to develop internal controls and character.
