The Foothills Day Camp is Held in Anniston
A variety of people –both young and old- come together to share in some good-old-fashioned-wholesome weeklong outdoor camping fun. The five day Foothills Day Camp provides a venue where campers and staff come from diverse backgrounds to carry out a once-in-a-lifetime summer day camp. The camp is a free summer day camp taking place at Camp Lee in Anniston for children ages 6 through 10. Camp Director Lee Shafer says most of the campers would not otherwise be able to attend a summer camp. Foothills Day Camp is staffed by high school aged young people, college students, and adults of all ages from all over the Anniston area and the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama. Shafer says that while Grace Episcopal Church in Anniston sponsors and facilitates Foothills Day Camp, it would not be possible without the dedication and support from the community, Camp Lee, area churches and members of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama.
