Hi, Excited Campers!
These current times with covid has left everyone with a lot of questions, but summer camps across the country have an optimistic resolve about the coming summer camp season. A couple weeks ago, I featured Camp Takodah in Richmond, New Hampshire who has continued to invest in the upcoming summer camp season. Today let me tell you about Forest Lake Camp in Chestertown, New York.
Concerning covid, Forest Lake Camp has put this message out on their website: “As camp people, we are used to dealing with both the expected and unexpected challenges that come with running a camp. In the meantime we will stay at home and ride out the next few weeks with all of you. Camp will be as important, if not more, for kids to have this summer, and we will do everything we can to make sure our campers have the chance to come home to FLC.”
Some of the fun things they have planned for this summer include over 50 different activity choices Archery, Arts & Crafts, Baseball, Basketball, Canoeing, Climbing, Fencing, Fishing, Hiking, Horseback Riding, Music, Riflery, Sailing, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Wilderness skills, and much more. Fun and unique camp activities come along all the time too depending on the experiences and expertise of the staff.
Morning routine for boys and girls is to clean up their cabin to teach them responsibility and teamwork. Each camper has a responsibility to keep up their beds, drawers, and lockers well-organized and clean. Along with individual responsibilities, each camper will get a cabin job that’s on rotation such as sweeping the cabin, cleaning the showers, and taking out the trash.
