For the past 35 years Sam and I, our family, and our staff have dedicated our careers to the safety and well-being of children at Camp Ozark. We wanted to take this opportunity to “keep you in the loop” as to what has and will be done to protect our campers and their experience this summer, and every summer, as it relates to the health and welfare of our camp population.
Supervised by our Health Center Coordinator, Crystal Smith, R.N., our Medical Director, Dr. Secily Torn, a Board-Certified Pediatrician,
and our owner, Susan Torn, R.N. with a Master of Science degree in Health Education.
We have been systematically rebuilding our cabins, starting with the youngest camper cabins, for the last two seasons in order to offer our campers the best and most sanitary experience possible. These cabins include:
Consistent evaluation of our compliance with all American Camp Association standards regarding safety, health, and operations. Camp Ozark has achieved a perfect score on all accreditation visits by the American Camp Association, which means we have been in compliance with over 300 standards and sub-standards. But we don’t stop there:
We know that clean hands are the first line of defense against the spread of communicable disease. Accordingly, we emphasize and require hand hygiene multiple times throughout the day.
Our summer staff is trained to use enhanced sanitation procedures when supervising the campers during mealtimes to ensure the best possible environment to protect the campers.
We are here to help. Tell us about you and a Camper representative will help answer any questions you may have.
