Camp Barnabas

About Camp Barnabas

Camp Barnabas is a unique Christian summer camp in southwest Missouri for individuals with disabilities and chronic illnesses. It’s a summer full of waterslides, fishing, canoeing, archery, ziplining, swimming, and so much more. Every program and activity is adapted, ensuring that every Camper, regardless of ability or age, can fully participate. Campers are paired with trained student volunteers (Counselors) from across the country so they can get the full care and support they need. Campers and volunteers unite in a journey of faith, growing in their walk with Christ, and emerging from this transformative week forever changed. We provide an on-site medical facility staffed with compassionate nurses and dedicated doctors, ready to offer not just medical care, but a nurturing and supportive environment. We want our Campers to have a summer just like everyone else because, for most of the year, our Campers are on the outside. Join us for a summer of love, inclusion, and transformation.
