Outdoor learning through experience and play has been an important part of the FLC Camp for Boys tradition since 1926.
A positive camp experience is one of the defining moments of a boy's life. Confidence is nurtured, independence is achieved, health is exercised, and enduring, life-long memories and friendships are created.
A Wide Variety of Camp Activities
Forest Lake Camp is designed to expose boys to a wide variety of activities, while also allowing them to grow skills in their areas of interest. The program at Forest Lake is elective and our campers choose their activities every day.
As part of the traditional summer camp experience, boys at Forest Lake Camp can participate in a large variety of team sports, individual sports, the Arts and of course our adventure programs.
Campers can choose to concentrate on specific activities to develop skill sets (for example, in sports such as soccer or baseball, or in arts such as music and theater. At the same time, our program provides variety and plenty of choice.
New Skills for Life
Our boys program also helps boys develop new skills for life. This includes everything from becoming a better soccer player to becoming a better friend. It includes learning how to play an instrument, and learning how to live away from home with a diverse set of friends, both new and old.
It’s about trying everything our program has to offer; everything campers already enjoy, along with some activities that are a bit outside their comfort zone.
A Family Atmosphere
We keep FLC small, with an underlying family feel, so everyone has a chance to get to know each other. The relationships and bonds our campers make last many years, in some cases for many decades, far beyond our camp in the Adirondacks.
The brother-sister aspect of camp gives the boys at Forest Lake the best possible experience at camp. During the day, single-gender activities allow our boys the freedom to try new activities without the social pressures many are used to in their routines outside of camp. The occasional evening co-ed activities allow for the growth of appropriate social interactions and support the family aspect of camp.
