Outdoor Ministries

The Missouri Mid-South Conference has an active outdoor program, including a full program of summer camps and two different locations for events.

Camp MoVal​ (Click here for the Camp MoVal website)


Our summer camp location in Union, Missouri, offers a program for just about everyone.

The Summer Camp program schedule is set for the 2019 camping season. The 2019 Outdoor Ministries theme is Peace Works, Empowering the Next Generation of Peace Makers.


As always, Camp MoVal provides camp experiences for all children completing kindergarten through graduating high school. We also offer camps for families, grandparent grandchild, young adult, and for folk with challenges.


New for the 2019 camping season, High School and Middle School Camp will be in July, so as to not interfere with General Synod. We are also doing our first camp in complete partnership with the Disciples of Christ and this new camp will have a focus on being a camp that will be for all persons that want to attend, regardless of any barrier that might prohibit them from attending. We are so excited for next summer because we know how camp changes lives!


Camp brochures will be mailed to churches and campers around mid-January and registration will open on February 1, 2019. Also new for the registration process in 2019, we are adding online registration. More information will be available when registration opens.


As always, If you need more information or would like a camp representative to come to your local church, please call the camp office at 636-583-2730 and we will take care of your needs.
