Going on vacation, traveling for work, a sleepover at a friend’s house, getting ready for college, heading to camp for the summer… whatever the reason, we make packing lists. Sure, sometimes the list is just in our heads but other times we write them down. Either way, we pack. Clothes, shoes, toothbrush and toothpaste… checking off as we go down the list. But have you ever stopped to think about what is NOT on the list?
Traveling by plane — pack your patience! Heading off to college — pack common sense and good judgment alongside those textbooks. Holidays with your extended family — tuck some unconditional love next to those presents. Finally going on that long anticipated trip — a sense of adventure and a set of reasonable expectations are good to have.
Families have been packing up trunks for their ALC campers for over 103 summers! Hopefully they have been carefully following our packing list (yes, 14 pairs of socks). We know that along with camp clothing our families are packing trust in ALC and we take this trust very, very seriously. We will care for your child, respect your values and help her have a meaningful, fun and rewarding summer.
Campers pack hopes for new friends, great times and new adventures. Alford Lake Camp is ready with amazing counselors and exciting activities to share with friends both old and new. Our staff is packing enthusiasm and professionalism to bring to every interaction they have with our campers.
In just a few months, when we arrive at Alford Lake Camp we will all unpack and begin our summer of sharing the magic of camp together. We can’t wait!
