Children’s Harbor, near Alexander City, Alabama, is a peaceful, wooded, 66-acre habitat positioned on the banks of beautiful Lake Martin. Each year, we partner and sponsor more than 30 illness-related camps, but also rent our camp facilities to groups of varying sizes for things like weddings, church retreats, board meetings, events and more.
