Who We Are

Camp Straight Street is a eight week day camp for kids in K3-8th grade. We are located in Birmingham, AL and are a ministry of Shades Mountain Community Church. Each summer we have over 1,500 different kids from our community come through our doors. We have been around for over 20 years and were voted as the best camp in the city and one of the 7 best camps in the state.

What We Do

Our goal is to see kids come to Christ and become like Christ. We work to accomplish this by creating an environment that kids absolutely love and a staff who sees their job as spiritual shepherds in the lives of these kids. Most of our campers come for the majority of the summer. This gives us an incredible amount of time to invest in these kids so that we can nurture them spiritually and over the summer begin to see them grow.

We Want You

As much fun as our camp is, and it’s a blast, we know that the secret to making our camp the best is the people that work at our camp. Our staff is the one thing our camp has that no other camp does. That is why it is so important to us that the people that work here have a heart for the Lord, love kids, and have a desire to be a part of something bigger than themselves. If you’re interested in spending your summer investing in something eternal, Camp Straight Street might just be the place for you. We are accepting applications of potential employees who are entering 11th grade in the fall of 2022 and older.
