Christian Education Ministry

Grow strong in your Faith!

Camp Mo-Val

branching out

  2017 Theme: Branching Out, Connecting Through Christ

Camp and outdoor ministry programs and facilities offer wonderful opportunities to momentarily escape from the pressures of daily life, experience God’s natural world, take time for personal reflection, join together as part of a community and grow in one’s faith… as well as laugh, play and have fun.

At Camp Mo-Val, they seek to provide a “Ministry of Hospitality” through a wide range of camping experiences and retreat possibilities. They serve children, youth, families and adults of all ages — regardless of religion, family status, gender, capability, or ethnic origin — who recognize the value of all people and respect our faith tradition. Their guests come from a variety of faith-based, educational, not-for-profit, civic and business organizations.

Camp Mo-Val is conveniently located 60-90 minutes from throughout St. Louis, two hours from Columbia and Jefferson City, and three hours from Springfield. Our mailing address: Camp Mo-Val; 2659 Camp Mo-Val Road; Union, MO 63084.
