ABOUT CAMP MUDD

Camp Mudd is an 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 help round out your child’s camping experience. Camp Mudd is located approximately 5 miles north of Columbia at the Camp Fire’s campground. 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. Campers learn to respect and enjoy nature through a variety of activities designed to give them firsthand experiences in the great outdoors. The Camp Mudd staff are carefully selected and chosen for their teaching skills, maturity, camp experience, and love of children. Prior to camp, the camp counselors participate in an intensive training program to refine their group leadership skills, first aid, CPR training, and nature skills.

ENROLLMENT

Camp Mudd has an enrollment cap of 75 children per week. Enrollment is open to children ages 5-12. Campers are divided into small groups of similar ages. Groups can change throughout the summer depending on enrollment each week. If your child would like to be in the same group as another camper, please indicate that during registration. We will do our best to honor those requests.
