Family Field Trips in the Beauty of God’s Backyard! Camp McDowell’s mission is to show the way the world could be through worship, learning, rest and play in the beauty of God’s Backyard. The camp borders the edge of the Bankhead National Forest in Winston County, Ala. and consists of breathtaking canyons, waterfalls, forests, and is known as the Beautiful Queen of Clear Creek. The camp includes miles of hiking trails, glistening streams, comfortable lodging, and great food. During this time families are needing a safe way to experience fun times together. Everyone needs time for their mental and emotional health. With that in mind, Camp McDowell offers several ways for families to safely escape into the camp’s 1400 beautiful acres in nearby Nauvoo, Ala.

Activities include raptor program, meeting camp goats, chickens, and pigs, guided nature hikes in canyons, streams and sandstone formations, canoeing and a  “taste” of the farm (harvest and prepare food).
