FAQ's

What happens in case of inclement weather? Do campers leave early, and how does the camp get in touch with us?

The majority of a camper’s day is spent outside, which means that the weather forecast is something we are always watching. We do have “rainy day” plans already prepared for the occasional thunderstorm. If there is dangerous weather warnings like tornado watches, we retreat to our large meeting room and wait until its clear. If transportation plans are altered in any way, UPDATES WILL BE POSTED VIA OUR FACEBOOK PAGE.

Do the buses have air conditioning?

The morning rides are great! Nice cool morning breezes rushing through the windows. The last activity of the day is always in our air conditioned meeting room where the campers cool down from their fun day. Then they get on the bus and immediately begin feeling the rush of a fresh pine breeze as they are moving down the road. (In short… no, the buses are not air-conditioned.)

What do you do for campers with special eating considerations?

We honor and provide for almost every dietary restriction. Special diet requests/notes are a part of our secure online registration process. If you need to let us know about any special diets or notes for your campers, just give us a call at 936-295-7641 or email us at hello@forestglen.org

Can campers bring a snack on the bus?

We provide a delicious, filling lunch and snacks each day (SERIOUSLY!). DO NOT SEND ADDITIONAL SNACKS WITH YOUR CAMPER.

Can campers bring electronic devices on the bus? 

Electronic devices are not allowed. Kids will be have a blast at camp, and one of the best things about camp is being UNPLUGGED.
