Hammond Camp celebrates 70 years April 28 with open house and clean-up
Hammond Mill Camp, Inc., is celebrating 70 years of hosting camps with an open house and spring clean-up day to be held Saturday, April 28. “This is a great opportunity to tour the camp and learn more about this treasure in the Ozarks,” said Hammond campground manager Rick Yeager. “It’s also an opportunity to donate some time to a great cause.”
Volunteers are invited to help with outdoor projects that day. Lunch will be provided for all guests and volunteers.
The camp sits on 10 beautiful acres in the Mark Twain National Forest where a CCC Camp originally stood. Located on CC Highway east of Dora, Hammond Mill Camp is a nonprofit organization that provides a woodland setting for church camps, youth camps, family reunions, retreats, weddings and other gatherings. The camp includes 12 cabins, a bathhouse, large dining hall and kitchen, chapel and outdoor pavilion.
