YMCA of the Ozarks
Feburary 27, 2013
YMCA of the Ozarks is a camp and conference center located on over a thousand acres of land and over a hundred years old. They specialize in family reunions, family camp vacations, and of course traditional summer camp. We met with Nicole who is the head of guest relations. She previously worked at Camp Wood in Kansas, is how we got connected with her and YMCA of the Ozarks. We were beyond overwhelmed as Nicole drove us around their large and luxurious property. Camp Lakewood which is the summer camp onsite looks like it has lots of fun amenities, for example rope swings and water slides. The cabins are beautiful, both the original cabins now used for pioneer camp, and the new cabins that comparatively seem like summer camp mansions. We also had the pleasure of running into Nelson the Executive Director. He has a interesting story and an inspiring resume, having visited over 80 YMCA camps and directed multiple summer camps across the country, Jack and I were star struck and excited to have met him and had a chance to see the massive complex that is YMCA of the Ozarks.
