YMCA Camp of the Pines provides a wheelchair friendly setting with wooden walkways and ramps throughout camp, and it offers choices for your sleeping accommodations.
For those who relish the great outdoors, it offers clusters of cabins, with one family to a cabin. Each cabin has a wooden floor, wooden walls with screened windows (with fasten down tent flaps), a wooden roof, and eight built in bunks with plastic mats. Nearby, there are regular indoor bathrooms with hot showers in small buildings; however, the cabins are not heated and most do not have electricity.
The YAF Cabins, which are for Young Adult Friends ages 18-35ish are in a seperate cluster.
For those who prefer indoor sleeping quarters, the camp provides three lodges, each with heat, light, electricity, bathrooms with showers, and built in bunks with mats:
(1) Douglas Lodge, which is for adults, with separate sides.
(2) Robins Roost, which is reserved for families, with built in bunks on two sides, so Friends choose a cluster of bunks and share two large bathrooms with hot showers.
(3) Pomona Lodge, which is reserved for the Teens [13 – 17 years old], with separate sides, and supervised by experienced Friendly Adult Presences (FAPs). All lodges have space for sleeping bags which could accommodate all campers if necessary. Many Friends bring their own memory foam or blow up mattresses and sleep comfortably on a bunk or on the floor. Campers need to bring sleeping bags, their own sheets, pillows and blankets.
