2016 Fall Fest at FLC

2014 Fall Fest

Fall is a time to gather together with friends and family. Thankfully at Forest Lake, our friends become our family and we hold many opportunities to join together for fun.  On October 22nd we are hosting our annual Fall Festival at camp. It promises to be an incredible time for new and returning campers and their families.  We hope you will come enjoy the splendors of FLC in the fall. 

2014 Fall FestWe hope for an incredible turnout and trust it will be a perfect way to spend a fall afternoon. In past years campers have carved pumpkins, played touch football on the girls softball field, toured camp on a hayride pulled by Gary Confer, and devoured sugar donuts and gallons of cider. We’ll keep a fire slowly burning to warm us as the sun comes in and out of clouds. We look forward to gathering to share stories of camp life and to become better acquainted with one another. We look forward to this annual event and love nothing more than when camp is filled with the smiles and laughter and chatter of others. Please mark your calendar for October 22nd and join us! No matter the season or the weather, FLC opens its doors to its families. We hope to see you soon!

  • 11-12: Pumpkin carving and hay rides
  • 12-1: Bring a lunch and enjoy a rest down at FLC’s waterfront
  • 1-2: Join us on a hike around the lake on our newly establish trail
  • 2-3: Hike to Lookout, shoot arrows on the range or play flag football!

This event is a great way for prospective families to come up to FLC and tour camp and meet the Directors and other FLC families. 

Hear what some of our past Fall Festival participants had to say about the day:

“The girls had such a nice time. Madalyn remarked after that it was the first time she carved a pumpkin completely by herself, and how she looks forward to trying other new things independently at camp next summer.”- Parent

“Our family really enjoyed seeing the camp during Fall Festival. Our daughter, Brynn, is usually shy but within minutes she was plaything tetherball with Lilly and picking out her bunk for the summer in Cabin 1 with Gene. She met many new friends over the course of a few hours. We felt like we found the perfect ‘summer home’ for our daughter.”– Prospective Parent

“I hadn’t seen Forest Lake’s fall beauty since September 2008 or so. The warm colors and still vibrant feeling coupled with the noticeable vacancy was something else. Forest Lake has always been a home to me, and driving down the camp road brought back so many indescribable memories and emotions. I was grinning from ear to ear as I always do about FLC. It was such a rejuvenating day – allowing a peaceful end to this summer’s chapter, but writing the first words of the next chapter in my Forest Lake book.”– Emily Fagan (FLC Staff)
