Fleur de Lis has made a difference in the lives of girls since 1929. Our extended family of past campers rekindle memories and make new connections when attending alumni events such as the Big and LIttle Weekends at Fleur de Lis, or by reading Laurel Leaves Newsletter. You can also become part of the future of Fleur de Lis by sending your daughters to camp and/or making a charitable contribution. In fact, the legacy of Fleu de Lis is evident by the number of daughters of former campers attending our camp as well as the financial support from our alumnae. Be sure to keep your contact information current with us so we can keep you connected!
Fleur de Lis is pleased to announce a new venture being launched summer 2013 called the Circle of Fleur de Lis that invites alumnae to assist in a meaningful way to provide a Fleur de Lis experience to girls who have lost a parent.

"Fleur de Lis Camp has held an important place in my family for over 70 years. It started with my mother who attended with her sister during World War II. Her stories of Fleur de Lis camp are family lore and were told to me as I grew up and was finally old enough to attend. I relished my summers at camp. Camp was a place where I could be exactly who I wanted to be. I was a water bug and could be found at the lake for almost every period during the day – sailing, swimming, boarding, rowing, waterskiing. Camp was my summer home and I thoroughly enjoyed the eight years I spent there. As I grew up and started my own family I hoped that my daughter would be able to attend Fleur de Lis. My daughter started camp when she was eight years old, and I was apprehensive (more than she was) – would she fit in, would she remember to take her allergy medicine, could she keep her bed made, would she make friends? I heard little the first two weeks she was at camp. As I drove into camp on that first visiting day and saw her smile and her standing there surrounded by all of her new friends I knew she was in the right place. As we talked that afternoon I realized that in the 35 years since I had been there as a camper, camp had changed very little. In today’s over achieving lifestyle, Fleur de Lis gives our daughters the chance to slow down, to enjoy nature and the outdoors, to do silly things and to simply be a girl. The friendships that are made will last a lifetime. And, in today’s cyber society It’s nice to have them write you a real letter – even if it’s shorter than you would like because they are having so much fun they don’t want to stop and write. You will notice that they come home a different person. They may make their bed without asking, they may do “dish” or “table” without as much complaining, but it’s the self confidence that comes from being away from home and learning to live independently with others who they may not have known before opening day which really shines through."
