 We would like to welcome you to Forest Lake Camp, one of America’s great sleepaway camps since 1926!


Our camp was founded by H.T. Confer, and remains in family hands to this day.  Since 1926, thousands and thousands of boys and girls have experienced the wonders of Forest Lake Camp, gaining independence, developing self-confidence, establishing strong new friendships, touching the majesty of the outdoor world, and sampling an extraordinarily broad range of activities never experienced before.


We very much encourage you to take a look at our website, and begin to get to know us.  Read about our values and principles.  Look at our Directors and Counselors.  Order our DVD and see for yourself the absolute beauty of Forest Lake Camp, our fields, our private Adirondack mountain lake with its extensive swimming and boating activities, our tennis and basketball courts, our horses for our outstanding riding program.  View and read about the whitewater rafting trips, the hiking and fishing trips, our performing arts programs, and so much more.  Read the testimonials, unsolicited, and check our parent references. 


Forest Lake Camp is a wholesome, healthy, life-shaping experience for a child.  If you think it’s right for your child, please give us a call or request more information.
