We, the directors, believe that a successful camp experience with today’s youth can positively affect their future leadership in our global community. We believe that when our campers return to their families and communities they will be more self-confident, will walk with stronger sense of integrity, and will be better prepared to make responsible choices in their daily lives. Our hope is for our campers to leave Alford Lake with a greater understanding of what it is to be a responsible citizen, with more ability and desire to reach out to others to – make a difference: and with the enthusiasm to want to help create a happier and healthier world!”
So, has the camp experienced at ALC, while giving campers fun and adventure in a healthy and safe environment, been truly effective and viable as an educational tool? We feel overwhelmingly, that the answer is YES!
SOCIAL MEDIA STATEMENT
While formalizing our contact with Alford Lakers through ‘social media’, we realize that with this, there comes a responsibility. We are excited to use technology as another form of connection and re-connection AND we feel strongly, that through these forms of contact, we all commit to the same values which we encourage in camp – kindness, sensitivity to one another and appropriate interaction with all ages. So as we proceed to use different forms of technology, we appreciate your strong stand in how you treat others and what you say and do while representing yourselves and Alford Lake Camp on line.
