Introduction to Boys Camp
“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, activities in the arts and of course in 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
Most importantly, our boys program helps boys develop skills for life. This includes the ability to make personal choices, understanding the value of friendships, advocating for oneself and the importance of accepting differences in our world. It also means becoming a more confident soccer player or a more skilled climber or mountain biker. It includes learning how to use the pottery wheel to detangle a fishing line or build a rocket. Joining the camaraderie of Boys’ Camp means joining a brotherhood in a home away from home, with a diverse set of friends, both new and old.
Forest Lake Camp is 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 activity allows for the growth of appropriate social interactions and support that the family aspect of camp brings.
