A Welcome From Our New Executive Director

Dear Forest Lake Camp community,

Having spent my first summer away from home back in 1992 at a small summer camp in rural Vermont, and owing that camping experience more than I can ever begin to articulate, I am excited, honored, and humbled to be presented with the opportunity to help lead the next generation of campers, counselors, and staff members at Forest Lake Camp.

Just shy of its centenary, Forest Lake Camp has a rich history and tradition, and we are eager to build on that legacy while also embracing new opportunities to share this stunning property and dedicated staff with those who have not yet had the privilege to spend a season or a weekend with us. We are committed to cultivating an environment in which every camper and staff member feels safe, supported, and encouraged to be their best selves. We are equally committed to ensuring that we continue to learn from and alongside one another, each and every day, in an earnest attempt to evolve constantly and improve consistently.

As we prepare for the upcoming summer season, we want to extend a warm welcome to all of our current and prospective campers, parents, and alumni. Your support and dedication to Forest Lake Camp are essential to our success, and we look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. If you make it to camp this summer, please stop by the Lodge and say hello! And to those who have already reached out to express your excitement for the upcoming season, please know, the feeling is shared!

Thank you for your continued support, and do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Warm regards,

Tyler Gardner

Executive Director, Forest Lake Camp
