Season Dates

May 25 – September 30


Fire Island Cabin is a volunteer-run facility. Volunteer managers and leaders run weekend and midweek activities. All guests participate in chores to clean and maintain the cabin. Weekend guests share food prep, communal meals, and clean-up; midweek (Monday-Thursday) is self-service (bring your own food and utilize our fully-equipped kitchen).

The Cabin offers two co-ed, 12-bunk dorms with mattresses, blankets and pillows (you may bring linens or sleeping bags, or you can rent our linen package for $20). There are shared bathrooms, hot outdoor showers, a screened porch, decks, beach umbrellas and chairs, kayaks, canoes, sailboats, yoga equipment and an Educational Center, which houses a library, board games, and workshops.

Activities include canoeing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, hiking, yoga, dancing, painting, dedicated family time, and more.

Children over the age of 6 are welcome midweek (Monday-Thursday) throughout the season. In addition, there are 2 special “Family Midweeks” (July 23-27 and Aug. 20-24) which are open to children of any age.
Midweek rates for all children 12 and under are discounted 20%.
We are unable to accommodate pets at Fire Island Cabin.
Smoking is not permitted.
