Host your event on Fruitland's campus.

Fruitland’s campus holds many amenities available for the use of summer camps, weddings, conferences, and more!

I would tell someone coming to Fruitland to find an outdoorsy local to tell you about places. Go exploring. There is so much to find here. Have fun finding your favorite spots and things to do!
