Camp Mudd is an affordable outdoor camp experience for the families and children of the Columbia area during the summer months. Our program is designed to make summer a fun time of learning, exploring, and making new friends. Each weekly session is designed around a theme and includes an exciting field trip or activity. Nature activities as well as sports, games, crafts, music, drama and swimming help round out your child’s camping experience.
Camp Mudd is located approximately 5 miles north of Columbia at the Camp Fire’s campground. The camp has 52 acres of trees, hills, rocks, creeks, and fields. There is a large lodge on the property that is well protected in case of severe weather conditions.
Camp Mudd is a place to watch birds soar through the sky, to explore the creeks and trails, to learn new skills and to make new friends… a place to grow. Campers learn to respect and enjoy nature through a variety of activities designed to give them first hand experiences in the great outdoors.
The Camp Mudd staff are carefully selected University of Missouri students who are chosen for their teaching skills, maturity, camp experience, and love of children. Our counselors are students working on their degrees in Education, Child and Family Development, Parks and Recreation, and related fields. Prior to camp, the camp counselors participate in an intensive training program to refine their group leadership skills, first aid, CPR training, and nature skills. The staff dedicates time and energy to develop a variety of fun and educational activities designed to make attending Camp Mudd a summer to remember!
