Countdown to camp
welcome to Camp Shadow Lake
What is Camp Shadow Lake?
Camp Shadow Lake is a day camp open to the community. It is located in McCalla, AL on the beautiful campus of Grace Life Baptist Church’s Shadow Lake for children who have completed K-6th grades.


When is Camp Shadow Lake?
  • Regular operating hours: 9:00AM-4:00PM
  • Early Care and Late Care options are available
  • Check out the weeks of camp offered for 2024 below


Our staff’s goal is to get to know our campers, care for them, and love them. We facilitate opportunities for our campers to connect with our staff & build deeper friendships with their peers.


We provide our campers with experiences that will support them in their growth as individuals. We come alongside our campers as they develop new skills. We create an environment where campers’ imaginations soar.


We will have FUN and make special memories together. We want our staff and our campers to enjoy their summer!

Is Camp Like?

Here at Camp Shadow Lake, our campers are assigned a team for the summer based on their age and gender. These teams are lead by a group of counselors, who we call our Coaches. Teams rotate together throughout the day to different activities, including but not limited to Creation time, Competition time, Crafts, and Concessions. We kick off camp each day with a rally in the morning and end the day in a closing rally each afternoon.

Through all our relationships and activities at camp, we teach our campers about Jesus through the Bible. We welcome all children to Camp Shadow Lake, regardless of religious background. But please remember that this camp is a Christian camp founded on Biblical principles.

every week is fun

Our campers will be having a blast all summer long with our themed weeks. Every week is different and every week is another opportunity for more fun! Check out what themes we will be offering this summer.
