Forest Lake Camp for Senior Boys Ages 13-16
At FLC, we organize our campers into age appropriate groups. Our oldest campers are senior campers. They enjoy special status as leaders of our camp community. They also learn to accept more responsibility and are expected to help define the camp culture, provide leadership to younger campers, and invest in their own personal development.
Senior Campers live in rustic traditional Adirondack cabins with 10-12 other campers and 2 counselors. Check out our cabins.
The daily schedule is full, with a good mix of scheduled and free-choice activities. Campers have 4 periods each day, with 3 free-choice periods and 1 waterfront period where all of Boys’ Camp comes together to enjoy waterfront activities on our private 22 acre spring-fed lake, called Forest Lake.
Our senior program combines a residential camp experience with traditional sports, wilderness adventures and leadership opportunities.
Senior Camper Experience
For some senior campers their area of interest might be more centered around our traditional sports activities, while for others it might be to spend as much of their summer in the wilderness of the Adirondacks. As a senior camper at FLC you have the freedom to design your experience in the way that you want. We work hard to provide a well balanced curriculum where campers have the opportunity to play in inter-camp sports competitions, take part in wilderness trips, while also choosing from over 30 different on-camp activities.
Activities only offered to Seniors at FLC
Being a senior camper at FLC means you have greater opportunities but it also means you have greater responsibility. To reward our senior campers for their leadership and the role modeling they provide to our junior campers, we offer a number of senior only experiences each summer. Please see an example of some of them below.
- Horseback Overnight Trip
- Rock Climbing Day Trip
- Rafting Trip
- Senior Outing Trip (i.e. movie in Lake George, bowling, rollerskating)
Adventure Trips for Senior Campers
Each Senior cabin has it own unique adventure that they go on while at FLC. These experiences range from single night to multiple overnight trips. For many senior campers, these trips with their cabin group are the most memorable part of their FLC experience, providing an opportunity to create strong ties with friends and learn more about what they are capable of achieving. Below are a few Adventure trips that have been offered to our senior campers:
- Overnight whitewater rafting trip
- Overnight mt. biking Trip
- 2-day Adirondack High Peak backpacking trip
- 3 Day Canoe Expedition
