Since 1946 until its closure in 2018, the Girl Scouts enjoyed the 180 acre Camp Mintahama property south of Joplin. With its recent sale, the Mintahama Inc. nonprofit has a renewed chance to purchase the property and expand access beyond girls, to include boys and lifelong learners of all ages.
There is a special opportunity to create a community experience venue that showcases the undeveloped beauty of Southwest Missouri. Historically the camp served a broad geographic community, with its accessible location 5 miles south of Joplin, Missouri.
For the first time, this camp can serve beyond young women, and address our community wellness needs by fostering people’s connection to nature for a broadened group of participants. With this second chance to save the camp, we are immediately fundraising for the down payment to acquire the property. It will be operated as a public summer camp and year round event and education center.
We can harness the passion for this property from a large committed group of longtime volunteers to meet our goal of reopening by Summer 2021 for its 75th anniversary.
