Countdown to Camp


Fairview Lake YMCA Camps

Traditional Camp


Laurel Ridge


Laurel Ridge & Kittatinny     

Laurel Ridge - Girls, entering grades 5-10
Kittatinny - Boys, entering grades 5-10

Laurel Ridge and Kittatinny campers have the opportunity to custom design their program each week by signing up for elected activities. In addition, there is one period where they can choose to go swimming, go to the athletic field and court area or just have some time to hang out with their friends.  Cabin mates will also enjoy something different during evening activity periods. Believe it or not there is still time for "siesta" right after lunch when everyone has a little quiet time to read a book, write home or share time with friends or visit the Trading Post.


Minisink - Boys & Girls, entering grades 2-4
(Choose from 1 or 2 Week Sessions or combine them for a longer stay)

Minisink is the perfect experience for our younger campers. Minisink staff provides a nurturing environment for campers to live and play. Counselors ensure that their campers are taking care of their personal needs, brushing their teeth and making their beds. At the same time they make camp fun and exciting, encouraging campers to try new activities, and learn new skills. The Minisink campers program 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 the campers electing to participate in a recreational swim or heading to the athletic field for sports. While Minisink campers receive the individual attention they need, they also enjoy participating in all camp activities and meals with the older Laurel Ridge and Kittatinny campers. This is perfect when siblings attend camp together and also makes for a smooth transition into Laurel Ridge and Kittatinny as the campers get older.
