Bus locations will be marked with Ozark tents and signs. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children until the campers have been fully checked in and loaded the bus.

ARRIVAL TIME

In order to ensure that the traffic flows smoothly and we can limit the time you are waiting in your vehicle, we ask that you arrive at your assigned arrival time. Your arrival time will be sent to you via email on Tuesday before opening day. The buses will depart Lake Highlands High School at 9:30 AM and, the first arrival time assignment will begin at 8:20 AM. Bus arrival drop-off and bus assignments are not correlated to camper cabin assignments. 

DRIVE THROUGH CHECK-IN

  • Collect any EpiPens, inhalers, or medicine prescribed within the last 7 days. Over the counter medications must be sent to camp by May 1st. For Summer 2022, no over the counter medications, vitamins, or supplements will be accepted on Opening Day of camp.
  • Provide your camper with their bus assignment.
  • Direct you to the camper boarding area and luggage unloading area.

TRAFFIC FLOW

CAMPER BOARDING

Camp Ozark staff will direct you to the camper unloading and bus boarding area. Please be sure your camper has everything they want on the bus with them organized and ready to go, as they will be getting out of the car and on the bus at this point. No adults will be allowed in the bus boarding area.

LUGGAGE DROP

Camp Ozark staff will direct you to luggage unloading areas. Parents/guardians should remain in the car for luggage unloading by the Camp Ozark staff. Please be sure your luggage is organized in the back of your vehicle in manner that allows for efficient unloading and promotes continuous traffic flow. Be sure that ALL items going to camp are labeled with the camper’s first and last name. Please note that your camper’s luggage does not need to go on the bus that your camper is riding on. All luggage will be unloaded, sorted, and distributed to the correct cabin upon arrival at Camp Ozark.

DEPART THE PARKING LOT

We ask that you please depart the loading area after checking-in and unloading luggage, so we can continue our drive through check-in processes efficiently.
