We cannot wait for the first day of residential summer camp in New York here at Forest Lake Camp. Parents, you’ve probably been researching summer camps for months now, but have you realized how beneficial they are for children? The benefits of camp are never-ending. Keep reading to hear some of what we believe the top benefits of overnight camp are!

  • DSC_0468Skills- At overnight camp, children will constantly be gaining new skills and lessons that will remain with them once they leave at the end of the summer. By trying out some of our many summer camp activities, children will be given the opportunity to choose what they want to learn about rather than be forced to participate in things they don’t enjoy. A typical day at overnight camp is filled with learning experiences and tons of fun!
  • Confidence- Did you know that  camp builds confidence? At Forest Lake Camp, we have created a safe and supportive community where campers can feel free to express themselves without judgment. Our camp staff always puts campers first and encourages them to do their best.DSC_0080
  • Time Outside- Located in the Adirondack Mountains, our overnight camp is the perfect place for children to put away technology and enjoy the great outdoors. Overnight camp is an opportunity to unplug from their electronics and focus on having an amazing summer.
  • Best Summer Ever!!!- Now, the most obvious benefit, all the fun children will have at overnight camp! At the end of the summer, children will come home with tons of memories from overnight camp with all of their new friends.
