Visiting Alford Lake Camp is a wonderful way to see our community in action. We encourage families to schedule a visit during our summer session, where you will be taken on a guided tour of our community by a staff member and a camper of similar age to your child. This is a great opportunity for your camper to see others living and enjoying life at ALC. You can finish your visit by talking with Sue and Betsy, ALC Directors, who will answer any questions you might have. You can join us anytime during the summer season, just phone or email us at to set up time.
If you can’t make a visit to Maine, we highly encourage you to attend one of our Gatherings. Gatherings are attended by campers, alums, families and friends of ALC. We always show a video of our prior summer, and then follow it with a lot of stories and laughter. It will give you the chance to meet our extended family, ask questions, and see more of our Alford Lake community in action during the winter months!
Family Camp – for new and returning families
Another great opportunity for families to experience ALC is to join us for Family Camp. Family Camp gives the whole family a chance to spend some wonderful time together, while giving your camper a chance to get comfortable with the surroundings of Alford Lake Camp. You can visit our Family Camp page for more detailed information on Family Camp this summer, and how you can enroll.
