Alton Jones is built for overnight adventure.  Stay the week and explore, try something new, and make lasting friends.  Overnight camps are 6 day, 5 night adventures exploring our natural environment and trying multisport outdoor skills.  While we certainly enjoy the great outdoors, we also offer comfortable accommodations.  These include cozy cabins and screenhouses with bunk beds and hot showers, a private lakefront, and great food in our dining hall!  Campers are separated by age into co-ed field groups and single-sex cabin areas.  All programs include swimming and traditional camp activities. Each Sunday begins a new camp session.
