Hey, Camp Folks!
Sending your kids to summer camp can be quite the endeavor. But knowing where you want them to go is half the battle! Today, we’re swinging our summer camp spotlight southward, down to the heart of the Missouri Ozarks—maybe just the place you’re sending your boy or girl this upcoming season!
Occupying 145 acres that stretch out along the banks of the beautiful Black River, Camp Taum Sauk has been showing boys and girls incredible summers since 1946! Owned and operated under the Smith family since 1958, Taum Sauk remains in good hands with Nick Smith as the current camp director.
There’s so much to do at Taum Sauk—there’s Archery, Arts & Crafts, Backpacking, Basketball, Broadcasting, Camping, Canoeing, Caving, Climbing Wall, Cookouts, Dance, Drama, Fishing, Frisbee, Horseback Riding, Kayaking, LaCrosse, Mountain Biking, Paddle Boarding, Ping Pong, Riflery, Ropes Course, Soccer, Softball, Snorkeling, Storytelling, Swimming, Tennis, Tubing, Volleyball, Yoga, Zip Lining, and even more!
Campers are often treated to a field trip out to nearby locations like the Johnson Shut-Ins, Reed Springs, Marble Creek, Taum Sauk Mountain, Mina Sauk Falls, Elephant Rocks, Pink Rocks, Pickle Springs, Rocky Falls, and Blue Springs.
Of course, there’s endless fun without having to leave the Taum Sauk campgrounds with their riding stable and ring, miles of trails, nature lodge, tennis courts, swimming pool, high ropes course, giant swing, zip line, scenic tree house, archery and riflery ranges, and plenty more.
Complete with an air-conditioned dining hall, administration building, health center, recreation room, pavilion, and arts & crafts building, the Taum Sauk campus is a very welcoming environment. And the private facilities at this camp provide separated areas for the boys' cabins and the girls' cabins including private bathrooms as well as modern bathhouses.
