Join Forest Lake Camp and become a part of a team! Camp counselors teach lifetime skills:the value of character and community, caring and fun!
Forest Lake Camp, located on 823 acres in the Adirondack Mountains of Chestertown, NY, is dedicated to the growth and leadership of its campers and staff. FLC is not a co-ed camp but rather a brother/sister camp. This means that our boys camp and girls camp each have their own distinct programs, activities, campuses, and living areas. The separate girls and boys camp programs co-exist on our same FLC property, providing a unique experience for each. We are currently hiring enthusiastic, dedicated and skilled staff to work with children, ages 8-16.
There is no greater reward or no greater job! Join us.
We are on both our girls' and boys' camps. Please inquire for more information.

Our Wood Shop leader structures the program for the Summer and organizes 1 day, 1 week, 2 week and 4-week projects for campers to complete. A background un wood shop, an ability to inspire along with the desire to keep a safe clean environment for teaching is important.
Wilderness staff at FLC focus mainly on adventure based activities: climbing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and overnight trips and also carry traditional general counselor responsibilities. Wilderness staff is responsible for the well-being and safety of campers, both in cabin settings and in daily activities, both on and off camp. A Wilderness staff must have background and experience pertaining to working with youth and/or the operation of an assigned department: climbing, kayak, backpacking, canoe or orienteering. A knowledge of the Adirondack Region is helpful.
Our Mountain Biking instructor / counselor is going to help us grow a new program. With an investment in new bikes, trails and the possibility of a pump track in 2019, we need someone with enthusiasm, bike maintenance skills and a real go getter attitude.
General counselors carry many of the same responsibilities but are primarily on camp facilitating daily activities and a positive camp culture. Activities include the creative arts, team sports, adventure sports, waterfront and wilderness and nature. Lead roles in a number of activity areas.
Our girls camp Head Counselor works as part of a 2 person leadership team managing the day to day running of the girls camp.
