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.
