We invite you to contribute to the Ollie Van Cise Campership Fund. Your generous donation provides support to families who may not otherwise be able to fully afford Forest Lake Camp.


Help send a child to summer camp

We invite you to contribute to Ollie Van Cise Campership Fund. Our campership fund was established in memory of Ollie Van Cise, a highly respected member of FLC for an uninterrupted tenure of thirty years.

Each year we speak to many families, alums and new, who would love the opportunity to experience Forest Lake Camp, but due to financial hardship aren’t able to meet the cost of sending their child to camp. We strongly believe all campers should have the opportunity to experience a summer at Forest Lake Camp and thank you in advance for helping us in this mission.

This program accepts tax-deductible donations, which directly provide scholarships for campers at Forest Lake Camp. The selection of recipients, from scholarship applications received, occurs annually prior to the camp season.
