  • Alford Lake Camp, one of the oldest girls' camps in the world was founded in 1907.The camp is located near the picturesque seacoast towns of Camden and Rockport, Maine. Alford Lake has extensive freshwater lake frontage and 400 acres of woods and blueberry fields.
  • At Alford Lake, the campers experience challenge and adventure through a largely elective program. The philosophy of program is that the campers should be relaxed and able to enjoy any activity without self-consciousness or fear, and that they should feel warmly accepted and be steadily encouraged. The goal is to nurture international friendships and to foster attitudes of greater global understanding.
  • The simple outdoor setting provides campers the opportunity to enjoy their natural surroundings and to gain awareness of the importance of environmental responsibility. The community also practices and promotes responsibility in health and nutrition.
