Camp Al-Gon-Quian Registration Information

Every summer more than one thousand campers come to Ann Arbor YMCA Camp Al-Gon-Quian and return home with thousands of stories. From the adventures of an overnight campout to writing a front-page article for the camp newspaper, performing a silly skit in the talent show or learning how to sail, every day at AGQ is different and every camper’s experience is unique. At Al-Gon-Quian, our campers choose their own activities areas, bond with their cabin group and counselors, partake in camp traditions and make friendships that can be life-long. Safety is the priority for every child who comes to AGQ, and our staff members make sure they always put kids first. Whether it is for our four-day Mini Camp of for multiple sessions, we hope your camper returns home with some of the best memories possible, increased confidence and self-esteem, an appreciation for the out-of-doors and a summer experience unlike any other. If you have questions about our camp, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting your camper on the shores of Burt Lake!

Sincerely, Charles Fahlsing
Director of Camping Services
