WHAT IS CAMP ALKULANA?

Camp Alkulana is a residential camp for children of Richmond, especially for children who live in the inner-city. It is sponsored by the Richmond Baptist Association.  The camp has been in continuous operation since it began in 1915, making it the longest continuous running camp in Virginia. The kerosene lanterns which shone from the windows of the camp's first cottage looked like bright eyes shining through the forest. Thus, the Indian word, "ALKULANA" (meaning "bright eyes") became the official name for the camp.  The 2014 summer sessions marked the 100th summer.

WHERE IS CAMP ALKULANA?

Alkulana is located in Millboro Springs, Virginia. It is 45 miles west of Staunton and located in the Allegheny Mountains. It is near the George Washington National Forest which provides the camp with plenty of space for outdoor adventures.
