Find your Family at Forest Lake Camp
At Forest Lake, you’re not just going to summer camp- you’re joining our family. You’ll spend the summer surrounded by people who will encourage you to be yourself, to discover the things you love to do, and to make the most of our beautiful surroundings in the Adirondacks. Live in cabins, get away from cell phones and TVs, make new best friends, and have the chance to enjoy being a kid in a safe and beautiful setting. Forest Lake is a sleep-away camp located in the Southern Adirondack Mountains of New York, just 3.5 hours from NYC. We are a “Brother-Sister camp” with separate camps for Boys and Girls which gives our campers the chance to thrive in our unique setting. Our goal is to help our campers grow in confidence and independence while providing them with experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
This camp is so amazing. It was my first summer and I loved it. Everybody was so nice, and I had the best summer of my life! The food is great, you really connect with the counselors, and they help you out with anything.
