Ozarks Baptist Encampment (OBE) is a cooperative ministry of the BMA of the Ozarks.  Each year several hundred people of all ages meet for a week of worship, fellowship, Bible study (& quiz), and prayer.  Our goal is to encourage people to grow in their faith in God.  Additional pages will be posted as available to display the information you need to prepare for Church Camp. 

It is with sad hearts that we announce OBE 2020 has been canceled.  Camp Siloam made the decision to cancel all 2020 summer camps--which includes OBE.  Executive Director, Ron Shutls, made the announcement to OBE on facebook.  Please join in prayer for OBE#2021 as we shift planning.  

2020 OBE continues our partnership with Camp Siloam for a combined week of camp to be held on August 3-7, 2020.  

2020 registration fees are not expected to increase.  2019 was $155 per person (ages 5 and up) $77.50 (ages 1-4) under 1 year Free.  

Online payments for registration fees, camp shirts and general donations are now accepted! We can now offer e-Gift cards that you can send to apply toward camp registration fee or t-shirt purchase right in the e-store!


Dates: August 3-7, 2020

Location: Camp Siloam

Bible quiz: Genesis 1-11
