Camp Tahkodah is about faith, fun and friendship. It is a place to be outdoors and enjoy nature ... a place to learn and grow with people who love the Lord and are living daily for Him ... a place to make new friends and have lots of fun. The 1,350-acre camp is owned and operated by Harding University. Its location in the Ozark Mountains provides beautiful bluffs, quiet valleys, a spring-fed creek and wooded hiking trails. Campers enjoy daily outdoor Bible classes, horseback riding, swimming, softball, basketball, ping pong, tennis, hayrides, archery, volleyball, crafts, canoeing, fishing, picnics, hikes, Bible bees, talent nights, hymn sings and inspirational devotionals under the stars.

Camp Tahkodah is directed by Ross and Nita Cochran. An enthusiastic group of college students serve as counselors, and volunteer adults serve as Bible class teachers. A registered nurse is a part of our staff. We are 20 miles from the doctor and hospital in Batesville and 35 miles from Searcy. Mike Justus, M.D., the camp physician, is just a phone call away. Our entire staff works together to make your child�s stay at camp a safe, enjoyable and spiritually profitable experience.
