About NeKaMo Camp
The Purpose of NeKaMo Camp, a Cedarbrook Camp is to faithfully present the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide unique opportunities for spiritual and personal growth for campers and staff in order to equip them to serve Christ and glorify His name.
NeKaMo Camp is a nondenominational Christian camp for girls going into 2nd to 12th grades. We provide a positive, supervised environment where girls can learn new skills, develop confidence, build new friendships, grow in faith, form lifetime memories and have lots of FUN!
Established in 1965, NeKaMo Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association and is a member of the Association of Cedarbrook Camps. NeKaMo’s program emphasizes skill-building, creativity, respect for others, nature appreciation, and a recognition that Jesus Christ is our greatest treasure.
At NeKaMo campers live in small groups of 6 to 8 with one or two counselors and participate in individually-chosen activities each morning and afternoon. Exposure to God’s Word comes several times throughout the day, including a personal time in the morning (Morning Watch) and a cabin Bible study led each day by the counselor. After the evening activities, campers gather around the campfire for singing and a short devotion.
A two-year Camper in Leadership Training program (CILT) provides high school girls a unique opportunity to develop leadership skills they can use throughout their lives.
Health & Safety
Camp, like life, is not without risks. We do our best to minimize and reduce hazards through our risk management program, which includes staff training and awareness, safety rules at all activity sites, and voluntary adherence to American Camp Association standards set for the camping industry. We have a registered nurse on site, and further medical assistance is available within five miles of our camp.
Location & Facilities
NeKaMo Camp is located in the Ozarks near Truman Dam outside Warsaw, Missouri. The site is rented from Camp Cumcito, owned by City Union Mission of Kansas City, Missouri.

Staff members play a key role in making camp a safe and fun place to be. We look for godly women who love Christ, love kids, serve with a cheerful heart, and like to have fun!
Our staff members are college students, moms, teachers, and often former campers who want to give to others what they themselves received at camp. Pre-camp training is mandatory and provides education in safety procedures, counseling and teaching methods, evangelism, and camping skills.
