Traditional Camp

Fairview Lake YMCA Camps offer campers a beautiful, fun, adventurous setting in which to grow, play and thrive. Each of our camps has traditions, songs and stories that develop a sense of belonging for campers, even if it's their first time away from home. Our highly trained and caring staff are selected to ensure the safety of our campers, and to help them realize their full potential, make new friends and try new activities. For over 100 years, campers have been calling Fairview Lake their home away from home, because of what they BECOME. For campers entering grades 2-4 Camp Minisink is their place. Camp Laurel Ridge energizes young women entering grades 5-10 and builds confidence and community. Camp Kittatinny helps young men entering grades 5-10 become more motivated and confident. Campers looking for a shorter stay can join us in our two-week Camp Tupelo, where they will become more open-minded and have new opportunities to learn.

Our Camp Minisink program is an ideal introductory experience for the younger camper. For many Minisink campers, this is their first time away from home, and our program provides a safe and comforting environment to help them build confidence and independence. Minisink provides a balance of structured and choice activities. Each camper receives swim instruction, cabin and unit activities plus two elected periods daily. The afternoon concludes with campers electing to participate in a recreational swim or heading to the athletic field for sports. Minisink campers build a strong community with the support of dedicated staff and special activities. While Minisink campers receive the individual attention they need, they also enjoy participating in all camp activities and meals with the older campers.
