Each Summer, Camp Ozark hires up to 25 college-aged young people to serve as members of the Camp Ozark Lake Crew. Members of the Lake Crew have the unique opportunity to use their boat driving skills and water sports talents to serve others, while making the campers’ time at the lake as incomparable and fun as possible!
The overall responsibility of the Camp Ozark Lake Crew is to help ensure the safe, efficient and exciting operation of all aspects of the Camp Ozark Lake Program. Daily Lake Crew duties include, but are not limited to:
- Preparing boats and other lake equipment for use each day

- Driving the various boats while teaching wakeboarding, skiing and other water sports
- Serving lunch to the campers and staff at the Lake
- Maintenance of the Lake Program docks and beachfront
- Assisting with the Camp Program when not at the Lake
- ...and more!
All members of the Lake Crew can expect to learn valuable lessons in safe and responsible boat driving, teaching techniques, interpersonal skills and equipment care. All Lake Crew members work under the direction of full-time Camp Ozark staff and play a crucial role in the experience, ministry and outreach of Camp Ozark. All members of the Lake Crew will be Lifeguard Certified (classes taught by Camp Ozark), and all other necessary training is provided.
