University of Arkansas, Class of 2024Camp Ozark has taught me many things, one of them being how to love the Lord through loving others. Part of loving others well is serving them, and being on Junior Staff showed me the true meaning of selfless service and the joy that comes with it

University of Texas - Austin, Class of 2025After my last summer at camp, I knew i would be back as fast as I could for as long as I could and being on Junior Staff was perfect for me. It was the most grounding experience doing work like that for a place I love so much. It truly was the best thing I could have done for myself to start off my college experience strong in my faith.

University of Mississippi, Class of 2024Camp Ozark is a place like no other. Being on Junior Staff taught me how to truly be a selfless servant and that the most rewarding work is the work unseen. The time each day we put into setting up for event nights makes everything worth it when we see the joy the games and decorations are bringing to the kids. I would not want to miss out on this experience, which is unlike any other.

Mississippi State University, Class of 2023 Camp Ozark will always hold a special place in my heart because of how the entire staff is united in mission and spirit to show the love of Jesus Christ to each and every kid that comes through the gates all summer. To be a part of something like that is an incredible blessing, and I am truly grateful for the opportunities that I have had to share God’s love during my time at Ozark.

Texas Tech University, Class of 2025 Being a Junior Staff member at Camp Ozark was a life changing experience. There were times when it got really hard and you got pushed physically and mentally. Going from being a camper to being on Junior Staff was a hard transition. However, I learned that putting in hard work has its rewards in the end.
