Can a summer transform a life? Can a few weeks make an indelible mark on a person’s soul? Can camp be the beginning of so much more?
We believe the answer to these questions is a resounding “YES”! We believe in residential camping. We know how important days at Alford Lake Camp can be in the lives of our campers and counselors. Days here are filled with adventure, friendship, growth, respect, learning and community. These words define our shared summers.
All members of our camp community - whether new or returning, young or old - unite to create and forge a summer of fun. Together, we all laugh, sing, grow and learn. Here, we cast off and chart our course following the winds of our imaginations and possibilities. We fill our sails with our dreams and our goals. Brave and steady role models skipper our journeys.
We, at ALC, believe that something looms larger and rests deeper than the fun and friendship of camp summers. Alford Lake campers and counselors will tell you that their ALC experiences impact their confidence, fortitude and understanding of what is truly important long after they leave the shores of Alford Lake. Respect is at the core of who we are as a community. For together, our campers and counselors share days of joy, days of summer, days that will never be forgotten. And they will remember, long after their summers at ALC, that they were part of something magical. At ALC, we live days of purpose and these summer days become part of lives well-lived.
