Who we are

Camp Shadow Lake is a summer 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. 

Our staff’s key focus is DISCIPLESHIP. We want to help children come to know Jesus and to grow to be more like Jesus. We will be sharing the Gospel, studying the Bible, praying with and for all of our campers all summer long. We want to come alongside our campers to provide opportunities for them to build relationships, to have incredible experiences, and to have the most memorable and fun summer! Discipleship will be at the core of those three things and is the core of everything we do at camp.
