Birthdays & Tipping


Many Al-Gon-Quian campers celebrate their birthdays while at Camp. On the camper’s birthday, the camper will be recognized at a meal with the AGQ rendition of “Happy Birthday” and a special cake to share with his or her cabin. Parents are welcome to deliver or have delivered other birthday items to the Camp Office for distribution by your child’s counselor. Please inform us of your child’s birthday prior to the start of the session so we can inform our chef and your child’s counselors!


Camp Al-Gon-Quian and the American Camp Association have asked that parents refrain from tipping staff members in an effort to be fair to all counselors. If you are impressed with a staff member’s work or want to do something as a token of appreciation, tell the Camp Director or Assistant Director how you feel and/or consider a contribution to the Camp Al-Gon-Quian scholarship fund or the camp library.
