IT'S TIME TO SIGN UP FOR CAMP FOWLER
If a child would like to go to Camp Fowler this summer, they should sign up as soon as possible. This needs to be done on-line. Camp Fowler is a beautiful camp on Sacandaga Lake near Lake Pleasant, NY. The deacons will subsidize some of the cost.
During the summer, Camp Fowler is at its best. Kids can choose to come to camp for one (or more) week of camp. These weeks are geared towards specific age groups falling within the range of children who have completed the 3rd grade to those who have completed the 12th grade.
Fowler offers two types of summer programming:
During an "incamp" week, campers stay on our 245 acre campus located in Speculator, NY. Campers participate in our daily programming which includes things such as sailing, hiking, arts and crafts, canoeing, and more. During the night, campers stay in cabins of typically 5 - 9 children who are supervised by an adult.

"Wilderness" week is radically different from an incamp week. Campers spend the majority of their time out in the Adirondack wilderness hiking, kayaking, canoeing, or fishing. Staff are competent in wilderness education, survival skills, and first-aid. Campers learn things such as how to light a camp-stove, canoe strokes, or the native flora and fauna. Nights are spent camping in lean-tos or tents. Group size varies from 4 to 8 campers.
We've given our Wilderness Camps a bit of a facelift for 2013. Check out this video!
