Anytown Alabama


Gov. Kay Ivey issued a Supplemental State of Emergency Thursday, March 26, and ordered that Alabama's public, K-12 schools remain closed for the duration of this academic year due to COVID-19, the extended last date of school is Friday, June 5.

Based on this knowledge and ultimate desire to look out for the best interests of our potential applicants/delegates, families, staff, volunteers, partners, funders, and the overall integrity of the program, we will move forward in canceling Anytown Alabama 2020.

We could not, in good conscience, ask our staff and camp leaders to move forward with the camp during a time of so much uncertainty. We look forward to the future and are committed to maintain the same high-quality program that Anytown Alabama has delivered for years.

In the meantime, we encourage you to continue social distancing, hand washing, and keeping your hands away from your face. Unfortunately, this is a serious health crisis, so please stay well. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
