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.
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 bus will depart University Park Village at 8:00 AM, and the first arrival time assignment will begin at 7:15 AM. Bus arrival drop-off windows and bus assignments are not correlated to camper cabin assignments.
Follow the direction of the Camp Ozark staff to pull into a check-in lane. You will be greeted by a Camp Ozark Staff who will:
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.
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.
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.

Your camper will be greeted by their counselor. Luggage will be sorted and delivered to their cabin. Counselors will help campers get settled into their cabin and accompany them to the swim test, make any morning activity schedule changes, and pick up any pre-orders from the Camp Ozark store.
We are here to help. Tell us about you and a Camper representative will help answer any questions you may have.
