I want to grow.


Global Challenge trips are designed for returning campers completing grades 8, 9, or 10, who are looking for additional adventure and challenge. The camp directors send invitations for the trips to girls who express an interest. Limited spots may be available for boys who wish to apply. Each trip carries its own flavor of outdoor adventure, action, leadership, challenge, community service and self discovery. ALC’s overall emphasis on citizenship, environmental ethics, respect for cultural diversity, and the constant attention to the sensitivity to others continues as ALCers explore the world around them. Over the years, Alford Lake Camp has offered a variety of Global Challenge Trips around the world, most recently including trips to Nova Scotia and the Alps. Our trips continue to evolve as we consider the best opportunities for our campers. Currently, we are pleased to continue to offer AMT, our oldest trip.


This seven week hiking trip takes campers from Mt. Katahdin in Maine to the New Hampshire border – over 300 miles on the Appalachian Trail.
