Good Stuff in TEC: Alabama

From Alabama-

Local teens spend week as camp counselor

Maddie Webb didn't know what to expect when she signed up to spend a week at Sawyerville Day Camp in Hale County.

Now that she's home in Florence and reliving her experience with friends and family, she said she's ready to go back.

"The kids that we worked with are practically coming from nothing, and they come to camp to have a good time," Webb said.

"You hear all the time that people are equal and that we're all the same, but you can't really understand that until you've lived it. We come from so many different backgrounds and with so many different experiences."

Webb, along with seven other members from the youth group at Trinity Episcopal Church in Florence, spent last week as counselors at the Sawyerville Day Camp, an outreach of the Episcopal Dioceses of Alabama and Episcopal parishes in the Black Belt.
