As 2020 began, bringing the COVID-19 Pandemic with it, it was quickly evident that so many things were not going to be able to go on as planned because of the new normal brought on by the virus.

This is a continuation of our series of Camp families sharing with us their family’s ‘why’ in 2020. There were a lot of questions surrounding the operation of Summer Camps in 2020. Through meeting with specialists and physicians, adding policies and protocols, and a staff dedicated to our mission – we brought the Incomparable Camp Ozark experience in a way we had never done before.

Why the Bolen Family
❤️ Camp Ozark

Nicole & James Bolen of Lecompte, Louisiana, a tenured Camp family, chose to still attend Camp Ozark in 2020 because they trusted our staff to provide that same Ozark experience as always. With the right protocols and safety measures in place, their daughter had her best summer yet! 

“I cannot express sufficiently in words my gratitude and appreciation for Camp Ozark, especially given the very uncertain times this year. Mr. Sam Torn is right; our children NEED camp…more than ever! Camp Ozark has gone above and beyond expectations to make sure Camp would press on. The thoughtful preparation and countless measures put in place to protect our children is Incomparable.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you! 

Here at Camp Ozark, we will always be committed to providing the best experience for kids through our commitment to excellence. Whatever it takes, that is our mission.

Special thanks to the Bolen family for sharing their thoughts.
