In the Black Belt of Alabama, where the sun shines hot – melting the asphalt and driving field cows under the shade of hickory trees and shortleaf pines — there is a place of refuge in Hale County known as Sawyerville summer camp.

“Sawyerville is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama,” said Claire Cotten, Sawyerville executive director for Development and Communications. “Our three goals are to serve God through outreach, to broaden the horizons of participants and staff, and to improve race relations in Alabama. We do that through five programs, including summer camp, mentoring and scholarships. All are free for children and youth in Hale County.”
