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.
