Day Camps start in just a few weeks and there's still room for kids who want to get out and have fun! Every week is a new adventure, but if you snooze, you lose. More info and registration are available by clicking on the 'Summer Play Away Day Camps' picture on the home page.
Next Community Lunch: Wednesday, June 5th at noon and it's the last lunch of the season. We end it in fine style with an Italian Feast. All are welcome and rides are available. Please register at http://www.alexhouse.net/event/community-lunch before Friday, May 31st. Cost: $8 for Alex House members; $10 for non-members. Memberships are $15/year and are available at the door.
This gallery helps to paint a picture of the Camp from a time that’s long gone, and with the following quotes from archived records, the past comes to life.
" In the warm sun at Crescent Beach and within a few hundred yards of the shimmering ocean, these mothers and their children who have been subjected to harshness and poverty all winter, will be revived...a complete rest will be theirs, on the sands of the beach and among the wavy grasses of the camp estate, and they will return to the city re-invigorated.”
We had a full house for the British Invasion lunch last month and had to turn many people away, as once the shopping is done, registration has to be closed. Please remember to register by the preceding Thursday so you don't miss out. The next lunch is May 1 - Cinco de Mayo Mexican Festival! The menu will include chicken quesadilla with salsa and sour cream, green salad, spiced fudge brownies, tea and coffee. Is your mouth watering yet? Yes? Then register now!
