Albright Camp marks impressive milestone

HERSEY — Stories and photos are being collected to include in a book about Albright Camp, and rightly so. This week the camp will celebrate its 110th birthday.

Not only will there be historical guided tours throughout the camp during the three day celebration which begins on Friday (July 29), but also all sorts of water activities, tournaments for sports enthusiasts, and moments of quiet, a calm time for contemplation as well.

Many of the camp’s original documents will be on display, along with pictures dating back more than a century ago. Anyone having photos, articles, or other items are welcome to bring them along to share or have copied to add to the on-going history gathering.

Kayaks, canoes and tubing will keep water enthusiasts busy as they drift down the Hersey River. Games of volleyball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, Gaga dodge ball, and a variety of other recreational games will stretch over the three days, along with a hole-in-one golf tourney and 3-on-3 basketball tournament.

There are plenty of spots for picnics, and there is also a huge pool on the grounds.

Special services are planned for Saturday at 8 p.m. and on Sunday at 11 a.m.,

A 4-H Gospel Hymn Sing is set for 6 p.m. on Sunday.

For those wishing to spend a night or more at the camp, cabin rentals are available from $25 per night, and RV sites from $15 per night.
