Children Camping

Ozarks summer camps keep children entertained while giving them a chance to meet new friends, get out and play, and learn useful skills.

It’s that time of year when the kids go off to make their own lasting summertime memories. Hopefully, they’ll have the same opportunities many of us had: time to slow down, get away from the routines of home and school, make new friends and learn new skills (or try to anyway). Ah…summer camp! It’s an especially beautiful experience here with the surrounding rivers, lakes and Ozark Mountains.

There are a number of summer camps offered in and around the Ozarks. A very popular camp is just over the border in Missouri. Kanakuk Kamps provides a premier Christian summer camp experience for youth ages 7-18. Fun and educational programs are age-appropriate and children enjoy the benefits of quality staff and facilities offering over 70 activities and sports. Parents can rest assured that their children are playing and learning in a safe and enriching place at Kanakuk Kamps.

Camp Barnabas is also nearby, in Purdy, Missouri. This Christian summer camp serves people with special needs and chronic illnesses, giving them a chance to learn, play and experience the beauty of the Ozarks in a safe, supportive environment. Camp Barnabas is a very special summer camp giving children opportunities they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.

While the kids are at camp, parents can also have a chance to get away from it all. Come to our Eureka Springs bed and breakfast to reconnect with nature and with each another. Treat yourselves to one of our luxurious guest rooms, suites or the Pearl Tatman Guest House and make it your home away from home.

There are so many things to see and do in Eureka Springs, you’ll want to return to enjoy them all. Eureka Springs’ Victorian charm is enhanced by the fine cultural and dining experiences available. The beautiful Ozarks Arkansas region also offers natural and man-made wonders such as the Cosmic Cavern and Thorncrown Chapel. Parents can have their own “summer camp,” seeing and learning new things, or just basking and relaxing in nature.

When camp is done, it’s just a short drive to pick up your children. What a refreshing way for the whole family to enjoy the summer break!
