Rotary Club of Faribault

Did you know that on June 8, 1960, the Faribault Rotary Club voted unanimously to create a separate corporation to provide an overnight camping area on the shore of Cedar Lake. The name FARIBAULT ROTARY YOUTH CAMP was chosen for the project. All members of the Faribault Rotary Club are members of the Faribault Youth Services, Inc. The Faribault Girl Scouts had been planing to build a Girl Scout Camp.  When they learned that the Rotary club was also interested, they offered to join the project with a contribution of $9,000. This covered the cost of the 18 acre site.
Rotarians have spent many hours working on the grounds and many dollars over the years to provide a well, the shelter, dock facilities, the septic system and insurance.
