Our white canvas platform tents are a signature part of the ALC overnight camp experience, each housing four to six campers and one counselor. Generations of campers have sung songs about the tents, played “flashlight tag” with friends, rolled the tent flaps to let air in, and hooked the flaps down to stay cozy and dry when it rains. ALC alumnae yearn for the sound of rain on the tent roof remembering happy times together with their friends.
During the day, campers roll every side of the tent up to feel the cool breeze. Campers call this "treehousing" their tent. Summer at camp in Maine is the best!
Made with a wood frame and floor, the tents are sturdy and comfortable. Each camper and counselor has a cot, and space on a set of shelves to store clothing. Rafters above provide room for sleeping bags, and a trunk gives additional storage space. Flashlights and headlamps illuminate the tent at night.
Two wash houses with electricity and running water are situated on each end of the tent line - a short walk from the tents.
