At the beginning of the 21st Century, Fabius Township was the home of four summer camps, three campgrounds, and several retreat and meditation centers. Oldest of the camps is Camp Eberhart on Corey Lake, operated by the South Bend, Indiana, YMCA since 1909. Adjoining is Camp Wakeshma, founded in 1925. The Latvian Center Garezers on Long Lake, formerly a Girl Scout Camp, preserves Latvian language and culture and operates a summer high school program. Habonim Camp Tavor on Kaiser Lake since 1956 provides a kibbutz-like experience involving Hebrew language, gardening, animal care, and community service as well as swimming and boating.

Meyer Broadway Park also provides scenic trails for nature hikes, picnic areas, a play area for young children, frisbee golf, and various hills and supplies for tubing in the winter.
