For over a century friends and family have escaped to Alden Camps to unplug and reconnect.
Great fishing, fantastic food and family fun all on the shores of East Pond, on a beautiful 40 acre property with a rolling field and a towering pine grove make for an unforgettable vacation.
Our resort is where all kids, big and small, get to be kids again without the distractions of life at home. Our kind and welcoming staff take care of all of the household chores, cooking and cleaning so you can truly relax, and do nothing afterwards!
Head out in a kayak or boat, on paddle board or out on a dock to cast a line, watch the sun set or simply listen to the call of loons and gentle waves lapping on the shore. Spend the afternoon at our sandy, gradual bottomed beach. Teach someone to waterski, or take a thrilling ride in a tube behind our ski boat. Grab the book that you have been wanting to finish and relax in the hammock on your porch or head up to the recreation barn for some ping pong, shuffleboard or a yoga class.
Alden Camps offers many activities at no additional charge.
Our recreation program is informally structured around the interests of our guests. We happily entertain any suggestions for activities. Tournaments and other events are organized by guests and staff throughout the summer. For the younger campers we offer “Kid’s Time” on weekday afternoons.
OUR RESORT IS WHERE ALL KIDS, BIG AND SMALL, GET TO BE KIDS AGAIN WITHOUT THE DISTRACTIONS OF LIFE AT HOME.
