One quality that makes Forest Lake Camp so unique is its wonderful, caring and professional staff. We couldn’t be more proud of all that our counselors bring to our camp community each and every summer. We look forward each month to introducing you to our new and returning counseling staff. Over the past few months we have been sharing what our 2016 staff have been up to since the summer ended. In our December newsletter we are excited to share a few NEW staff for summer 2017!

I have always dreamed of what it might be like to actually attend one and I am so excited that I am going to have this experience.
