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 east side of Fairview Lake YMCA Camps has three winterized cabin units and a large lodge available for groups. They are separated by wooded areas permitting simultaneous use by several small groups, or your group can rent out the entire unit or the whole side of camp!
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. Due to the design of the buildings, coed groups can be easily accommodated. The cabins have heat, electric lights and outlets. Smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are standard in each cabin.
Cabins #1-6 Capacity:64
Hudson/Edison Capacity: 20
Cabins #7-14 Capacity: 80
Cabins #15-24 Capacity: 104
