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 helps round out your child’s camping experience. Camp Mudd is located approximately 5 miles north of Columbia at the Camp Fire’s camp ground. 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, explore the creeks and trails, to learn new skills and to make new friends… A place to grow.






Camp Mudd has an enrollment cap of 68 children per week. Enrollment is open to children ages 5-12.


The Junior Counselor Program is a volunteer program for youth who are at least 13 years old. This program is designed to give these students added responsibility while developing leadership skills.


Of Course no summer would be complete without swimming! The campers go swimming each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at the Albert Oakland Family Aquatic Center.



A special memory for campers are our camp-out weeks.
