As Dr. King shared in his most noted speech, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Barefoot Republic shares this dream, and we appreciate you considering how you might join with us to make the dream come true. We are pleased to invite you to join us by walking or donating to the 5K 4 MLK, a run/walk event honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 18, 2021.
Through this event we hope to shine a spotlight on the need for both diversity and unity within the community, honoring those who stood up for justice and civil rights in generations past as we continue to model and advocate for Gospel-centered reconciliation for the generations to come.
Our Golf Tournament this year was a great success! On Monday, July 20th at Old Natchez Golf Club, Barefoot welcomed 23 teams and played in record heat but we had so much fun! Our Golf Tournament serves as a primary fundraiser for Barefoot Republic’s Annual Scholarship Fund. It's not too early to start planning for next year! By participating, you will help change a child’s life next summer! The event for 2021 will be held on May 10, 2021. You may register as an individual, or as a 4-person team.

The 2nd Annual Clay Shoot, a tournament benefiting Barefoot Republic Camp’s scholarship fund, was a great success this year! Each year, tournament takes place at our campus near Scottsville, KY. We are seeking forward-thinking companies and individuals, those who agree that ours is a worthy mission, to join us in 2021 for a special day of shooting, food, prizes and more. Registration starts at 9 am, shotgun start at 10 am, and lunch at 1 pm. You will enjoy a terrific course that is both fun and challenging, wonderful company, generous awards and the opportunity to transform young lives as you help send deserving kids to camp. You can participate through sponsorship, putting together a team, or by providing goods and services. Please contact directly with questions about the tournament and your involvement.
Every September at Amy Grant’s Farm in Franklin, TN, we gather for a night of inspiring camp stories, youth performances, and live music. This is the time of year when we catch our breath, look back and reflect, and feel very grateful for every single child and their experience at camp this summer. Whether it was discovering an exciting activity, building a new friendship, or deepening a relationship with God, it is a blessing to us to know that Barefoot Republic was a part each child’s experience. This year, our Banquet was canceled due to safety concerns with COVID-19. In its place, we are launching a MAKE A DIFFERENCE FROM A DISTANCE... a way to support Barefoot this year from your own home!
