Camp Soroptimist began providing a recreational retreat for Jasper County foster children during the summer of 1984 when members of Soroptimist International of Joplin and employees of the Jasper County Division of Social Services/Children's Division came together to focus ​on the needs of foster children in the area. Camp is one of the club's service programs and causes they support.

  • Campaign to end domestic violence
