Accomodations

Where Will I Sleep?
Campers stay in living units such as open-air cabins, platform tents or indoor sleeping shelters. Girls attending specialty camp trip sessions will sleep in the trees in our hammock living unit!

Our youngest campers stay in the Pixie living units- this means indoor units where you'll sleep on mattresses on the floor, just like a big slumber party! The Pixie units are a perfect introduction to camp for first-time campers because they're carpeted and have heat and cubbies. Bathrooms with showers and flushing toilets are just a few feet away. Counselors sleep in a connected foyer in case the girls need anything at night.

What'll I Eat?
Campers eat most meals together family style in the Lodge of Nations. Our skilled kitchen staff prepares healthy meals with multiple options to choose from, and are experienced in handling food allergies. Campers give the food 4 1/2 out of 5 stars!

Things to Do
bow-arrow_blue_64

There's so much to do at St. Albans, you won't hardly believe it! Archery, horses and a pollinator wall are just a few of the things that make this camp so one-of-a-kind! Below are just some of the activities campers can participate in:

  • Swimming 
  • Horses 
  • Rowing 
  • Viking boats 
  • Arts and crafts 
  • Pollinator wall 
  • Archery 
  • Leadership development 
  • Nature exploration 
  • Outdoor skill building 
  • Campfires and cookouts 
  • Sailing

At Camp St. Albans all Classic Camp campers who are entering grades 4 and up will sign up for an activity area (such as archery, canoeing, nature exploration) to focus on for the week and will then spend an activity period every full day in that area developing their skills. Even with the Classic Camp experience campers get to spend extra time in the program area they are most interested in. Camp St. Albans also has overnight campsites across Lake Devereaux, so campers can row a Viking boat (really!) across the lake and spend the night camped out under the stars.

Arboretum
The arboretum is the perfect place to explore the flora of Camp St. Albans. The arboretum has kid-sized trails that showcase many native plants. You'll find throughout the arboretum trails, there are plaques that label and provide information about the trees and plants. We also have scavenger hunts and fun things campers can do to make their exploration more exciting. The arboretum was built and is lovingly cared for by the Friends of St. Albans.

Music Wall
Our Music Wall is up and ready for campers to come and make music. This area uses recyclable materials that make different tones, sounds, and rhythms. As a free play space surrounded by cedar trees, girls can go in and make music with their troop, camp unit and new friends.

Community of Camp
heart_64_ornj

Camp St. Albans is a tight-knit community that many people call their second home. Over half of the staff team attended St. Albans as kids, and often say they can’t imagine spending their summers anywhere else. When you come to St. Albans, you become part of our community!

The heart of camp is the Lodge of Nations, where we share our meals and sing songs. The lodge is decorated with many flags that were brought to camp by staff who were from or visited other countries. In the center of the lodge is a fire pit where we build a fire on chilly mornings, which creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. Outside of the Lodge of Nations is a campfire circle where we meet to sing songs before each meal. Whether you're inside at meals or by the campfire circle, you'll be surrounded by new friends.

At the end of every session everyone in camp meets for a closing campfire at the Rock Memorial Fire Circle. We sing songs and tell stories as we look over Lake Devereaux and reflect on our week together.

Wait, There Are Gnomes?
Campers aren’t the only little creatures that inhabit Camp St. Albans. Gnomes have moved in!  Gnomes inhabit two areas of St. Albans where they've built little villages. Younger campers love to write the gnomes letters and leave them at their gnome houses.

Camp St. Albans is also home to wood faeries, who are very shy and never seen. But if campers are very quiet after lights out they'll hear the wood faeries outside their cabins, singing and playing their magical instruments.

"My daughter had never been to any camp. She didn't know anyone, it was out-of-town, she's shy, and yet, she had the time of her life! I was extremely impressed with the camps' organization, programming, and especially the Camp Director who was friendly, professional, generous and efficient. I was so delighted when I visited! What a wonderful experience."
