Bunks, Cabins, Shelters, and Tents
Camp Farnsworth is a Girl Scout camp and all of the housing is for girls ages 6 through 18 to enjoy an experience living in somewhat primitive conditions. Therefore:
They are mostly cots with a plywood base and a 3-inch thick 30 x 72-inch foam mattress. There are a few bunks of the same basic design that are double-decker.
The Cabin Sites
Cabins are enclosed buildings which have screened windows with heavy weather-repellent drapes and a glazed window door.
The site with the largest group of cabins is the Tree Houses which has .five cabins, each with 6 bunks similar to the Double-Decker Bunk above. Four of the five Tree Houses are double tree houses. They have a common wall and an open doorway between the two houses
The Skye Meadow is a site up on the hill. It has two cabins and two tents. The cabins have eight bunks each. The tents have four bunks each.
Kaflik is a group of 6 cabins near the Equestrian "Riding" Ring. Five of them have 5 bunks in them. The other, which is attached to the pavilion has 6 bunks in it.

The Shelter Sites

There are two Condo sites. The first are the Lake Side Condos with a view of Abenaki Lake and has 2 shelters with 2 bunks in each. The other are the Hill Sides Condo has 2 shelters with 2 bunks plus a 4-bunk tent.
The Tent Sites
Their are three tent sites. The tents are cabin tents meant to be used when the Girl Scouts are at summer camp. They are designed to provide shelter for the Girl Scouts over several years and hence will stay dry on the inside during a rain storm, provided the sides have been tied down securely. Each site has 8 tents with 4 bunks in each tent.
Each of the sites also has a "recreation" shelter which is open with no screens and no door, just a couple of entryways.
Ojackel has eight 4-person tents similar to those in Yaryole below and an open "recreation" shelter.
Tovarische has eight 4-person tents similar to those in Yaryole below. It also has a special enclosed "recreation" shelter that is more like a cabin. It overlooks the lake and has shutters in the windows and a door which latches.
