Clicks for Camp Photography Contest: Dogwood Tour

Mintahama property 7013 Eland Rd, Joplin

Clicks #forCampMintahama Contests seasonally offer guided access to the closed camp property called Camp Mintahama to photographers at all skill levels. The contest purpose is to showcase beauty of this 140-acre forested property, potentially closed forever without community intervention.
By photographers allowing their photos to be published and shared, the public is able to see the wonderful resource we have so nearby, that could reopen for outdoor activities and education by summer. The contest concludes with an awards day and showcase in local supporting establishments.

Sign Up to participate here and a property access waiver will be emailed to you, and then you will choose your time to visit with a guide available to orient you. Come enjoy Mintahama's Spring beauty!
