It is time
to Get IN
to MINTAHAMA

Our Mission is to preserve and utilize historic Camp Mintahama to offer lifelong skill-building, education, and leadership programs through outdoor experiences.

Entering its 75th year of service to the four-state area in 2021, this expansive property just south of Joplin, Missouri, needs to be reclaimed for community use as an outdoor learning and recreation area.

Join our nonprofit’s efforts to preserve this property for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.

I'D LIKE TO DONATE

The first $300,000 raised will allow the Mintahama property to permanently reopen for public use under the stewardship of the Mintahama Inc nonprofit.
3,000 people raising $100 each would get us to goal!

I'D LIKE TO VOLUNTEER
