What to Expect at Camp

We want you to see Fairview Lake YMCA Camps as your home away from home, and to do that, we strive to provide you with the best facilities, best staff and best experience possible. We take pride in our cabin areas, program lodges and dining facilities, and work hard to select and train caring, fun staff to make your stay at Fairview a memorable experience.

WHERE YOU'LL STAY

Year Round Units:

The year-round side of Fairview Lake YMCA Camps has three winterized cabin units and a large lodge. Each family, unless they request something different, will have their own cabin to call home for the weekend. For parent/child weekends, cabins will be shared based on the age of the child. 

Traditional Cabins

The buildings are duplex in style. Each side of a building is identified by a cabin number (listed below). Each cabin has 10-12 built in bunks and its own indoor bathroom with flush toilets and showers. The cabins have heat, electric lights and outlets. Smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are standard in each cabin.

Birch
Cabins #1-6 Capacity:64
Hudson/Edison Capacity: 20

Laurel Ridge
Cabins #7-14 Capacity: 80

Lakeside
Cabins #15-24 Capacity: 104

 
Wickapeck Lodge

Wickapeck is a unique lodge located near the entrance to camp. The converted farmhouse has bedrooms and bathrooms on two floors, plus a dorm-style wing. A snack kitchen (refrigerator, stove, sink; no kitchen ware), porch and living room make this a great place for large groups and families. Capacity is 50.

 


Seasonal Units

Available: Mid April - Mid June / Mid August - Mid October

The Seasonal side Fairview Lake YMCA Camps has three cabin units available for groups. Seasonal cabins are open in the Spring, Summer and Fall only. Each unit has its own bath house with electrical outlets. Each unit also has its own fire pit for campfires and cooking. We also have room for tent camping. 

Delaware 

Nine cabins nestled on the hillside, each with eight built-in bunks. (Cabin capacity: 72) A bathhouse with hot showers, flush toilets and sinks is centrally located in the unit. The center of the unit also has field space for additional tents to be pitched or games to be played. Delaware also has a pavilion area with picnic tables and is near a large athletic field. Adventure Weekend parent/child programs are based out of this unit. Memorial Day, Labor Day and Fall Family Camps will also be able to rent cabins or tent in this area. 

Warrior

Six cabins, each with eight built-in bunks. (Cabin capacity: 48; not suitable for tenting) A bathhouse with hot showers, flush toilets and sinks is centrally located in the unit. A basketball court, Kittatinny Program Lodge and the Wakigan Waterfront are a short walk away.

Wakigan

Ten Adirondack shelters with two bunk beds each accommodate four people. (Cabin capacity: 40, Tenting is also possible) A bathhouse with hot showers, flush toilets and sinks is centrally located in the unit. The unit features its own waterfront. (Please note that the waterfront must be staffed by Fairview Lake Lifeguards to be used.)
