Adult Group Retreats

Building Connection Together.

Located in beautiful Northern New Jersey alongside the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Welcoming Groups For Adult Retreats & Groups of ALL Types and Sizes

During this pandemic, employees everywhere are working harder, longer hours, and oftentimes apart from their colleagues due to social distancing. As we juggle our own personal and professional lives, it’s important not to lose time for the important relationship building that boosts job performance and helps prevent worker fatigue. 

Groups can feel empowered and inspired at Fairview Lake. Whether it’s recreation or just a safe meeting space you’re looking for to set goals and strengthen relationships, we can work with you and your group to provide programming that is tailored to your needs and interests. We offer flexible scheduling so you can conduct your own activities as well.  With our upgraded WiFi, you can stay as connected as you want to be.

Spend a day at camp or a whole weekend! Fairview Lake YMCA Camps offers plenty of space to get together safely, while enjoying the beauty of northern New Jersey this time of year. Within our 660 acre campus, we have private cabins with heat for colder months, a large dining hall with room for seating indoors and outdoors, and spacious conference areas. We adhere to social distancing guidelines, and screen all visitors and staff at camp for COVID-related symptoms upon arrival and daily, and we ask all staying at camp to self-screen as well.

For more information about camp and to learn how we can provide a memorable experience for your group, please contact Fairview Lake YMCA Camps at 973-383-9282 or email
