STARTING CAMP OFF RIGHT!

WE ARE COUNTING DOWN TO THE START OF SESSION H! PLEASE LOOK OVER THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION TO HELP GUIDE YOU ON OPENING DAY.

HELPFUL HINTS

PRIVATE AUTO

ARRIVE & CHECK-IN

We are excited to see you at Camp Ozark! Check-In for camp will take place in the Satellite Lot. In order to help reduce time spent waiting in vehicles, all campers arriving to camp via private auto have received an arrival window via text, email and the camper’s Travel Itinerary located on the My Ozark dashboard.

At check-in, campers will receive arrival screening, a name tag, cabin number, and a dashboard directional sign. At this time, you should turn in EpiPens, inhalers, and medicine prescribed within the last 7 days.

If you are not able to get out of your car on Opening Day (ie. catching a flight), you may request a drive through drop-off once you arrive in the Satellite Lot.

Our customer care team will be available at the drive-up Customer Service station at the BOP for any parents needing to speak to a Camp Ozark staff member more in depth about any special situations.

OPENING DAY MOTORCADE

Once check-in is complete families will drive into the gates of Camp Ozark and be directed by staff to the appropriate unloading areas. Camp Ozark staff will greet families and unload luggage.

CAMPER LUGGAGE

Once in the cabin designated unloading area, Camp Ozark staff will unload camper luggage from your car and assist your camper and their luggage to their cabin. Please make sure your luggage is labeled with the camper’s first and last name and that it is organized in the back of your vehicle for easy unloading. Camp Ozark staff will valet all vehicles.

SWIM TEST & SCHEDULE CHANGES

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. Parents are welcome to accompany campers throughout the entirety of the opening day procedures.

GEAR UP

Take advantage of having items delivered to your camper through the Camp Ozark Store!
