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 Smith Family
❤️ Camp Ozark

The Smith Family of Baton Rouge, Louisiana chose Camp Ozark in 2020 after a few spring months of uncertainty. They felt like there was no better place to send their kids for the summer, and took advantage of the Endless Summer Promotion as well.

“We loved the experience both our daughter and we had in Session E that we decided to send both of our girls back for Session H. With the school uncertainty, we knew the best place for them to go to build confidence, gain independence and have great fun before they returned to a Virtual school environment was Camp Ozark. This was also made possible by the generous discount made for Session H. We are very grateful for the dedication of the camp staff to put on camp during these unprecedented times to give kids some semblance of normalcy. I know it was not easy!”

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 Mrs. Kathryn Smith for sharing her thoughts.
