With staff members from 12 different countries at camp this past summer it was only natural to celebrate an International Night of food and cultural exchange. And it was a blast!
Our Program Director always wants to be immersed in nature, at camp, and off-season. He just took a spring paddling adventure to ‘Ghany — read his blog post!
Camp Alleghany for Girls seeks a new Head Cook and/or Prep Cooks for Summer 2016.
Camp Alleghany is a family affair, with four of us working for camp and other family members pulled in from time-to-time. Here’s how we celebrate our holidays!

In the past couple of years we’ve had a few changes in our kitchen staff.
