     Camp Cottaquilla is nestled in
     the foothills of the Appalachian

     Jacksonville, Alabama. It offers
     beautiful hardwood forests,
     tall mountains, hiking trails, and
     3,000 acres to explore. Camp
     Cottaquillla was established in
     1948, and has been providing
     quality summer camp programs
     for 60 years.
     A picturesque lake provides

     gazebo. Camp activities include
     a variety of traditional program
     opportunities for both resident
     and day campers, plus a new
