Why families are choosing FLC

Gene and Lilly As the Directors and parents of three boys who attend FLC, we understand the leap it takes to send your child away to an overnight camp. However, we also understand the benefit and the value gained from a summer filled with fun, learning and new adventures.

An FLC summer is all about learning new things, making new friends, gaining independence and being challenged in fun and memorable ways!

We also understand there are many camps to choose from – its not an easy choice. If you are like many parents you have requested a myriad of brochures and DVDs from many camps and have poured through them all looking for a unique quality that will assist you in your decision.  To help you, we have asked our new incoming families to share why they chose Forest Lake Camp for their family (reasons are in no particular order). We hope their answers help you with your decision.
