Scott’s earliest memories of Camp Ozark were attending family camp with his cousins and relatives in the late ’70s. In 1984, his father and mother acquired the assets of Camp Ozark, and Scott attended camp throughout his youth. In fact, Scott has experienced camp from many perspectives: camper, dishwasher, Lake Crew director, and Head Boy’s counselor. Throughout his Camp Ozark tenure, Scott has been able to observe first-hand the unwavering commitment that both his father Sam and his mother Susan made to the mission and purpose of Camp Ozark.
Scott, along with his sister Angela, oversees all aspects of Camp Ozark. Scott is particularly involved with the Ozark staff, marketing, camper and camp family relations, camper registration and the incomparable Camp Ozark website. Scott is also co-director of the Camp Ozark Foundation.
Scott grew up in the Houston area and attended Texas A&M University, where he served as Head Yell Leader. After completing his law degree at South Texas College of Law, Scott pursued a career in commercial real estate. Eventually, he and his partners (including his brother) formed their own company which was later acquired by a national firm. In 2007, Scott and his wife Secily decided to make the same commitment that his mother and father did in 1984 and now he, his wife Secily and his five children live the incomparable Ozark life.
Scott brings great perspective and vision to Camp Ozark. His commitment to pursuing excellence in all areas is a reflection of his passion for making Camp Ozark truly incomparable, and for carrying on the best traditions of Camp Ozark while looking to the future. Scott has immense talent for managing large, complex projects while also paying attention to the smallest detail. Scott possesses a genuine, Christ-centered passion for others, particularly those less fortunate, and a wry sense of humor.
Scott began dating his wife Secily in the fall of 1992 as a result of their Camp Ozark counselor experience. They married in the fall of 1996 and have five children, Sam, Jack, Kaiya, Tucker and Anna Scott. Both Scott and Secily are active in the community, serving in various capacities for Family Point.
