Fire Island Cabin is a volunteer-run facility available to AMC members and their guests. Volunteer managers and leaders run weekend and midweek activities. 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 $15). There are shared bathrooms, hot outdoor showers, a screened porch, decks, beach umbrellas and chairs, kayaks, canoes, sailboats, yoga equipment and our new Educational Center, which houses our library, board games, and workshops.

Activities on Fire Island include canoeing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, hiking, yoga, dancing (Irish to Salsa), painting, dedicated family time, and more.


Children over the age of 6 are welcome midweek (Monday-Thursday).

Dedicated Family Time includes 2 midweeks during summer months with no age restrictions.

We are unable to accommodate pets at Fire Island Cabin.

Smoking is not permitted in or near any structure.
