This year will be Foothills Day Camp’s sixth summer! Foothills will take place from July 17 - 21 2017 at Camp Lee in Anniston, Alabama, with staff reporting on July 16.
FDC is a free summer day camp for children ages 6 to 10, most of whom would not otherwise be able to attend a camp. It is sponsored by Grace Episcopal Church, but staffed by high school aged youth, college students, and adults from all over the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama. FDC celebrates diversity, silliness, and love!
A lot of time and a lot of hands go into making this experience unforgettable for all of the campers. During the day, the staff leads camper small groups in program, music, arts and crafts, and a variety of camp activities including swimming, canoeing, zip-lining. Once all of the children have gone home, the staff has time to relax, discuss the day, and participate in camp activities themselves. Being a counselor can be challenging and exhausting, but it is also heart-warming, rewarding, and fun.
Because FDC is free for campers and staff, camp relies on donations from the community, local churches, and individuals. Monetary donations are always appreciated! Online giving is avaiable through this website or make checks payable to Grace Episcopal Church for Foothills Day Camp and mail to: Grace at P.O. Box 1791 Anniston, Alabama 36202.
Please send your prayers and love to Foothills!
