Camp Tekakwitha is a privately owned, privately funded religious camp. Located in St. Clair County, Alabama, the camp is on 120 acres of hills with a chapel, seven acre lake, walking trails, lodge and pool. The camp is a place of retreat, designed for like-minded youth groups, parish organizations and clergy within our diocese committed to the same mission as the Catholic Church. At this camp the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama seeks to teach by act and deed the principles of our religion. All events at the camp must be in compliance with Catholic Church teachings. The Diocese reserves the right to deny access to any group or individual with a history or intention of preaching or teaching in opposition to the doctrine, moral teachings, or practice of the Catholic Church.
