SUNDAY IN THE PINES
Each Sunday, the ALC community gathers in a pine grove by the lake to pause, share, listen and reflect. These moments of mindfulness are some of the most meaningful experiences for our campers and staff.
Sunday evening the community gathers and campers share log entries for each day of the preceding week. We have log books going back to 1909, telling the stories of every day of every summer. This is also when campers turn in their required weekly letters home.
Once a week, campers, CTs, and counselors gather around the campfire circle and share skits, funny stories, and songs while watching the sun set across the lake.
Every tent writes a song and performs it at the song contest. Judges select a few songs to add to the official ALC songbook.
SWIM ACROSS THE LAKE
At the end of the summer, some campers are invited to swim across the lake. The whole camp waits on shore to greet and cheer on the swimmers.
OTHER SPECIAL SURPRISES
Counselors and CTs love planning special events with lots of laughter and fun!
