Sam & Susan

Sam and Susan Torn, owners, have dedicated their lives to serving today’s youth through the incomparable experience that is Camp Ozark.

Sam and Susan Torn have been the owners and operators of Camp Ozark since 1985.

However, Sam’s association with Camp Ozark began much earlier. Sam first came to Camp Ozark (then known as Ozark Boys Camp) in 1951 at the age of 3 with his family. He later spent five summers as a camper at Ozark Boys Camp and six summers as a counselor before he married Susan.

Sam and Susan are totally involved in the camp operation and live on the camp premises in the summer where they oversee all aspects of Camp Ozark on a daily basis.

Sam and Susan have been married since 1970 and they have three children – Scott, Chris and Angela – who are all part of the Camp Ozark staff. They also have thirteen grandchildren and count them as the greatest joys of their life.
