Forest Lake Camp (FLC) is a summer camp located just north of Lake George, in the Southern Adirondack Mountains of New York.
"Forest Lake Camp for Boys" was opened as a boys only camp in 1926 by Harold T. Confer. Mr. Confer was the Athletic Director at Freeport, NY High School on Long Island. One year before the camp opened he had bought over of land around Forest Lake. In the property were a farm house and an inn that are still there to this day. The land was originally crossed by an old stagecoach route from Chestertown, New York to Saratoga Springs, New York.
By 1954 Harold Confer's son Philip began running the camp alongside his wife Sally.〔
〕 The couple ran the camp for 32 years, during this time they bought over 200 additional acres on the other side of the lake, thus acquiring all the land surrounding the lake. In 1984 Philip's son Gary took over the camp.
In 1990 the camp stopped being a boys only camp and opened "Forest Lake Camp for Girls". Since then the camp runs as a “brother-sister” camp, although it is not a true coed camp since boys and girls cabins are located in different campuses, and both camp have independent programs. Yet on occasions, such as July 4 and campfires, both camps will interact. Older campers interact more often, as one of the programs is drama whereupon both genders participate in plays. At least one dance is held each summer which is another interaction.
The Camp is now owned by the Blanck (currently has a 3rd generation camper enrolled) and Kelly families of Waterbury VT and Needham MA respectively. FLC is an accredited camp by the American Camp Association. The Camp has different programs raging from 2 to 7 week programs for boys and girls ages 8–16. Both male and female camp start and end on the same dates.
