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 Maxwell Family
❤️ Camp Ozark

Allison & Joseph Maxwell of New Orleans, Louisiana chose Camp Ozark in 2020 as a first-time family. They felt that kids needed something like summer camp after a spring that brought a new normal of staying at home.

“It was my son’s first year at Camp Ozark and we could not be happier with the entire experience. From start to finish you guys did an amazing job. It was an EASY experience, too. Your information was very accessible, the app made sending forms, etc, a breeze. It also was wonderful in keeping me informed of the goings on while my son was at camp. I love the spiritual aspect of your camp, too. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. My son had an amazing time and we as parents could not be happier, as well, I can’t thank you all enough for giving us such a great week. We are already looking forward to next summer. It was kind of a bummer of a spring and summer for a lot of the kiddos, and your camp experience was just what the doctor ordered. 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 Maxwell family for sharing their thoughts.
