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 our third in a series of Camp families sharing with us their family’s ‘why’ in 2020. All of our Camp families, especially those in cities most affected by the Coronavirus, had great concern sending their children to summer Camp under so much uncertainty. 

Many, however, trusted that the team at Incomparable Camp Ozark would take the right steps to make it more safe and fun than ever before. We did just that.  

Why the Varcados Family ❤️ Camp Ozark

Tara & Thomas Varcados of Houston, Texas have been part of the Camp Ozark family for years. That was no different in 2020 as the impact of Camp Ozark on their son was needed this year more than ever.

“Every year (our son) states it was better than the prior summer! (He) stated his counselors were the best he has ever had!  I am not sure how you guys can top it year after year, especially with what 2020 had dealt us. With so much uncertainty with school and sports, we are so very grateful (our son) was able to attend 4th session, albeit only for a week.  You have no idea what it meant for him and our family that the one summer constant in his life for the last 8 years was still there to accept him with much love and open arms.  We feel confident Camp Ozark has the health and well-being of each and every camper at the forefront of their decision making process. Here in Houston, we have survived floods, hurricanes and an ongoing pandemic and grateful that Camp Ozark is helping our son grow closer to God with a heart full of gratitude.”

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 Varcados family for sharing their thoughts.
