Fowler Family Camp

Apart from our summer programming for kids, Fowler's last week is Family Camp. And it's for just that: Families!


This means mom, dad and children get to come to camp together. Activities are built around strengths and interests of the families at camp. This camp week starts on Monday and ends on Friday. Cabin sharing among families and friends is encouraged. A limited number of rooms in Chi Rho lodge are available (a fee applies). Consider this very popular week for you and your children: the memories created last a lifetime. 

Fowler Family Camp is a legacy of love.

It's time away from ordinary life, nestled in the Adirondack wilderness with those whom you love the most, your family. You are together without distractions. Crickets, Blue Jays and Butterflies, are your neighbors. Together, hand in hand with family and friends, spend an endless five days under a vast day-blue sky and four magical nights under Adirondack stars.

'Time' is the greatest gift of Family Camp.

'Time' to take your child's hand into your own and walk.
'Time' to 'meet' your child in a wordless exchange of eye contact.
'Time' to be nourished by wholesome and home cooked food.
'Time' to sit with your beloved at the beach and bathe in the orange glow of an Adirondack sunset.
'Time' to play and laugh, childlike, with your child.
'Time' to hug, your child, wife, husband, brother, mother, sister, friend or even a tree.


'Time' to become and remain, your child's 'unsung hero' for as long as possible.

Come to Fowler Family Camp and begin establishing your family legacy of love. Sing in the day with 'Morning Watch' then go for a hike, a paddle or a siesta. Sup in community, create with nature art and toast marshmallows in the fire. Join family and friends and enjoy all.
