that each member of the camp community should feel accepted and respected for who they are. At Alford Lake Camp our goals are achieved through a nationally and globally diverse community, through simple outdoor living, through a varied program of activities, and through the leadership of enthusiastic and qualified counselors.  Our hope is for our campers to leave Alford Lake Camp with a greater understanding of what it is to be a responsible citizen; with an increased ability to navigate life’s challenges; with a greater ability and desire to reach out to others to “make a difference” and with the enthusiasm to want to help create a happier and healthier world!
