See You At Camp!

Residential Camp

At Camp Fowler, we believe that every child should go to Summer Camp. Every child should swim in a lake, eat s’mores around a campfire, and gaze up in wonder at the stars. Every child should get to be a kid, should get to play hard, should get to rest well. During a week of camp, they can do that. 

 

 Our residential camps are one week long and run from Sunday afternoon through Friday evening. Campers stay in our newly renovated cabins with up to nine cabin-mates and their cabin counselor. Beginning with our hamburger cookout on Sunday night, campers enter into a classic week of summer camp: each morning we start our day with worship by the lake before eating a homemade breakfast in our dining hall. We spend the day engaged in classic camp activities and immersed in the beauty of the Adirondacks. We canoe and we hike, we complete low ropes challenges and make boondoggles, we play camouflage and gaga ball. After free time in the afternoon, we all eat dinner together before our evening programming and heading back to our cabins to sleep before beginning it all again tomorrow. It’s always a blast. It’s summer camp as it should be. 

 

Below are descriptions of the different programs we offer along with their dates for Summer of 2018. Our different weeks of camp are designed with various age groups and interests in mind. Unless otherwise noted, all weeks of camp cost $425.

#20  L.E.A.D. Week (grades 9-12)

June 24 - 29, 2018

LEAD week is for high school students who want to hone their leadership skills, give back to the Fowler community and the world, and learn what it looks like to make Camp Fowler happen. With an emphasis on small group activities and discussions, service opportunities and the chance to learn directly from Fowler staff, LEAD week campers will end their week with 40 community service hours and a greater understanding of what it looks like to be a leader. 

 

LEAD week is a prerequisite for Camp Fowler’s SWiM (Students Working in Ministry) program. After committing to being a camper during LEAD week, students coming out of 10th, 11th, or 12th grade may apply to return later in the summer during one of our weeks for younger campers to serve as a caretaker, role model, and leader, otherwise known as a SWiM. Our SWiMs are responsible leaders who are committed to making Fowler a welcoming and fun place for children. If you are interested in learning more about the SWiM program and its relationship to LEAD week, please visit our SWiM page

This is the best introduction to the fun and adventure that Summer Camp can bring! Designed for our first time campers who want to see what Summer Camp is like, this week packs tons of classic camp activities into three awesome days: swimming in Sacandaga Lake, hiking on many of the nearby trails, canoeing—maybe for the first time, and eating s’mores at sunset. By the time you leave after the third night, you’ll be wishing you could stay longer! 

 

Una Tierra means “One World” and these weeks are designed to bring campers of all ages together to bring out the best in everyone! "Una Tierra" arises to light a path into the future where compassion, simplicity, and caring can become daily and ordinary experiences.

#30/#60 Una Tierra (One World) (grades 3-12) 

Two Options: July 1 - 6, 2018  &  July 22 - 27, 2018

This is one of our most popular weeks of Camp. We LOVE Una Tierra weeks because they are crazy fun for all ages! One of our favorite parts of these weeks is seeing kids of all ages, from third grade to high school graduates, having fun playing, canoeing, worshiping, and eating together. During the day, we’ll have several trips designed especially for the older campers (7th-12th grade), and some special actives planned for younger campers, but everyone always worships, eats, and enjoys classic camp activities, like campfires and swimming, together as a group!  

 Una Tierra means “One World” and these weeks are designed to bring campers of all ages together to bring out the best in everyone! "Una Tierra" arises to light a path into the future where compassion, simplicity and caring can become daily and ordinary experiences.

Note: Campers are assigned to cabins by age groups. 3rd-6th graders are in cabins together; 7th-12th graders are in cabins together. We cannot accommodate cabin-mate requests that mix age groups.

 


 #40 Adirondack Week • (grades 7-9)

July 8 - 13, 2018

This week is for explorers, adventurers, and campers who love to be outside! At Camp Fowler, we believe the wilderness is the best playground and during Adirondack week we spend all day playing in it! Each day, campers will choose from a variety of day trips: from hiking tall mountains, canoeing and kayaking down winding rivers, or sailing across Sacandaga Lake on one of our sunfish sailboats. You’ll get to eat lunches by waterfalls, on mountain tops, and floating in the middle of lakes and you’ll return to camp each day for even more fun: campfires, stargazing, and storytelling! 

There’s too much in the Adirondacks to explore in one week, but that doesn’t mean we won’t try!

 


#45 Trail Mix • (grades 3-5)

July 8 - 13, 2018

Trail Mix week is the first step in becoming a life long camper at Camp Fowler! Designed specifically for our youngest campers (coming out of 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade), Trail Mix gives campers the opportunity to experience classic camp activities—maybe for the first time! Each day, campers will be exposed to different camp activities via rotations, so everyone will get to try everything. One day it might be canoeing and learning how to make homemade ice cream, another it might be tie dye and heading out on the trails to hike. The opportunities are endless! Campers will leave loving the Adirondacks and loving summer camp!

 


#70 Horizons • (grades 7-9)

July 29 - August 3, 2018 

Expand your horizons with a week of camp! Horizons week provides you with the largest variety in available activities and you get to choose what you want to do. Each day, you’ll select from a diverse group of activities and decide what you might want to try: maybe sailing or learning about compost, or you might want to climb a mountain or learn to build an Adirondack trail. You could try your hand at kayaking or canoeing or testing your balance and mental strength on our low ropes course. The options are endless! Horizons will give you the opportunity to try new things every day and spend every night chatting with friends around a campfire and listening to the call of the loon.

This week is designed specifically for high school students: we start later and we go longer in the evening. We break out our favorite activities during the day: hiking in the high peaks, exploring hidden and little known corners of the Adirondacks, the impossible canoe trip, painting inspi-rocks and iconic Adirondack sailing. You can start your day with fishing or yoga, or maybe going for a run and then a dip in the lake. And you’ll end every evening around a campfire, singing songs and watching the sun dip behind the mountains, surrounded by friends. Sometimes you just need to step out of a hectic high school schedule and get away to be reminded that you are surrounded by friends, and a world full of wonder that is greatly loved - by a great God!
