THE WAY LIFE SHOULD BE
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 by a staff member and a camper of similar age to your daughter. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time.
If you can’t make a visit to Maine, we encourage you to attend one of our winter 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 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 allows the whole family to enjoy camp, and gives your prospective camper the chance to get comfortable with ALC. You can visit our FAMILY CAMP page for more detailed information on Family Camp this summer, and how you can enroll.
Current Camp Families
We love opening our doors to visitors to give you a glimpse of life at ALC! At the same time, we want parents to know that it is also perfectly okay not to visit your camper. Some parents have let us know that they have had the impression that visiting is a must, and this is not the case.
We offer three opportunities for campers to have visitors. Each of these visiting days will give families the opportunity to spend time with their camper(s), have a picnic lunch, meet their camper’s friends and counselors, and be part of our weekly Sunday in the Pines. For the health and happiness of all campers, it is ALC policy that no camper may leave camp with a visitor at any time.
