Meet our New Assistant Director!

Taylor has been a camp professional since 2014, working in the Adirondacks in the summer camp world and as an international staff recruiter. She has joined Forest lake Camp as our Assistant Director and will be working full time with the rest of the FLC team to ensure the most magical camper experience. Taylor will bring programming, recruitment and summer camp insight that will continue to develop and make Forest Lake Camp a great, fun and safe place for our campers. She will be a resource for families and staff throughout their whole camp journey.

Taylor is originally from Wales and moved to Upstate New York in 2019, with her partner, Jay. They are working towards becoming Adirondack 46ers. So you will most likely see them on a High Peak when not at camp!
