Dear Camp Mollenhour campers and supporters,

After careful consideration, the board of directors of C.O. Mollenhour Conservation Camp regret to inform you that summer Conservation Camps for both boys and girls will be cancelled for the 2020 season. This decision did not come easily, we have been in continuous operation for 82 straight years.  However, after looking at various options, and reviewing state and local health recommendations and guidelines, we felt it was best to cancel the camps for this summer in concern for the safety of our campers, counselors, and staff. We will be offering refunds over the next few weeks to the payment methods used at registration. If you have not seen a refund within three weeks, please contact us via email at

We are working with local Conservation Officers to offer a Hunter and Boater Education Course at the Camp during this summer. Please look forward to more details posted on our Facebook page and our website at We will also have our second annual Fall Festival in October (if health conditions allow). More information will be available on our website as that time grows near.

Lastly, we are a 501(c)(3) organization. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to the camp, please do so through our website at

Thank you for your past and continued support of C.O. Mollenhour Conservation Camp.


The C.O. Mollenhour Conservation Camp Board


Camps will resume in 2021.

  1. Camps are limited to the first 80 registrations each Camp week. We operate on a first come, first serve basis. Please get your registrations in because Camps fill up early.
  2. Payment must be made upon registration. If an organization or individual other than a parent or guardian is sponsoring a camper, a check or a letter from the sponsor with the sponsor’s name and phone number included MUST accompany the registration form.
  3. Check-in will begin at 2:30 P.M. on Sunday. Please – no early check-in’s!
  4. No camper will be admitted without a signed “Consent for Medical Treatment” form on file to be turned in at registration.
  5. The Camp Director should be informed if any child has special needs so that consideration can be made towards those needs.
  6. To contact campers, (EMERGENCY ONLY!!) – Talk/Text (260) 352-2607
  7. If there is a valid reason that a camper must leave or be visited by parents during the week, special arrangements need to be made with the Camp Director during the check-in time. Should an emergency arise during the week, please call the camp to inform the director of your needs. Separation of the child from the parent is part of the camp experience.
  8. Each camper is expected to comply with the “Bring/Do Not Bring” list above.
  9. Swimming is only allowed during specified times and under the supervision of a lifeguard. (We use the “buddy system” as an additional safety measure.)

  11. We will make every effort to make each camper’s stay an enjoyable one, but cooperation is very important. The Camp Director reserves the right to send a camper home at the parents’ expense if they become unmanageable.
