“ Coming to Camp Ozark for the first time, I was no stranger to summer camps and everything they usually entail—praise and worship, a little healthy competition, and ample amounts of fun. ” - Margaret
“ Camp is a place where you can physically see God’s love. It’s visible In the joy on campers’ faces, in the high-standards and expectations, and in the way staff members care and live for the kids. ” - Mary Catherine
“ Camp Ozark instilled the confidence in both Roy and myself to go out and start our own business. If you have a young camper that might want to be an entrepreneur, the leadership skills and values learned at Camp Ozark are invaluable. ” - Ryan Seiders, Co-Founder & President of YETI Coolers
“ To say Hugh had a wonderful time is such an understatement. He had the TIME OF HIS LIFE! What a spectacular experience for him - and for us. He grew up so much in just one week. ” - Michaele F.
“ I cannot begin to convey how pleased I am with Camp Ozark. EVERY single person I dealt with was professional, kind, enthusiastic - it was like being at Disney World at camp. ” - Carmen W.
“ I tend to worry a little more about him, due to a severe food allergy; when I arrived, the nurse made me feel like he was so protected and safe, and my worries about that issue were gone (that never happens!). ” - Shay D.
SOCIAL / spotifySummer Theme Songs
“ Just on a personal, last summer after camp, my boys received Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Andy and I both feel that the counselors at Camp Ozark planted the seed. Those kids have such an important influence on our kids lives and can teach them things they may not necessarily get from mom and dad. ” - Lee Ann
“ Thank you for providing my kids with a group of people who love them so much they feel it all year round. The confidence they have gained and the the love they feel that has helped them turn into the people they are. ” - Eric
“ Camp Ozark is by far the best camp I’ve ever been to! ” - Anthony
“ According to Ryan it was the best 2 weeks of her life, which was of no surprise to us. We are looking forward to attending many more closing ceremonies in the future. ” - Stephanie T.
“ I'm blessed with 3 very unique, involved, loving kids. A friend asked whats your secret? I told her (and honestly believe) that Camp Ozark has been a huge factor in the development of my kids. ” - Kim B.
Starting from seven years old to now sixteen, Camp Ozark has been one of the most pivotal and important pieces in my life. Each summer I spend two weeks in the most amazing place with even more amazing people surrounding me. The atmosphere within the gates of Camp Ozark is incomparable. Camp has taught me the mercy and love of God, and the staff has taught me that I can make a difference in the world. Many of the counselors I’ve met at camp have instilled in me the importance of community, and they still reach out to me weekly to inspire and challenge me. The countless life lessons I’ve learned from camp have changed my life in so many ways. If it weren’t for Camp Ozark and their amazing staff each and every year, I wouldn’t be the man I am today. I can’t wait for one last year to continue to build friendships and grow closer to the Lord! Luke Atchison, 2nd Session, 10 year camper
Camp is a place where you can physically see God’s love. It’s visible In the joy on campers’ faces, in the high-standards and expectations, and in the way staff members care and live for the kids. The camp program emphasizes the capacity of this everyday. Whether it is in tribal competition, going to the lake, or in devotionals at night, kids AND staff are taught and reminded how invested The Lord is in our individual lives. The way staff members intentionally love the kids all year-round positively influences their walks’ with Christ. If I can show even just one child the same love I have witnessed in this place, then I want to be there every moment I can be. As a former camper, and now counselor, I can say with certainty that there are very few places where Christ’s presence is so obvious.
Each summer over 6500 kids choose to spend a session or more at Incomparable Camp Ozark, exploring over 400 acres of beautiful, forested terrain, participating in more than 150 activities, during our 11 week camping season. 6500...400...150...11.
