    I worked at Camp Ozark part-time

    Pros

    being apart of their mission is incredible, getting to see (and be apart of) how excited and loved the kids are, push yourself past your limits and gives you opportunities to do things you didn't think you could do.

    Cons

    it's very hot in AR, really long hours

    Advice to Management

    I had a really wonderful boss in the office who took the time to know us individually. She also taught us very valuable lessons about dealing with people and being in tight situations. My hope would be that everyone could have a boss like her.

    I worked at Camp Ozark full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about Camp Ozark. If you decide to do this job you will NEVER look back. I, to this day, think working here has made me a better person. I'm more loving, centered, sure of myself, and confident. You literally change children's lives and watch kids grow closer to God in front of your eyes.. while this is happening you don't realize how much you change and how much you grow. Now that I'm not working there-- I see how Camp Ozark shaped me. I can take on the world and truly say it's because I was a counselor at Camp Ozark.

    Cons

    It's far from where I lived so travel expenses were high but 100% worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on rockin'!

    I worked at Camp Ozark full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I met THE coolest people at Camp Ozark and formed great and treasured friendships during my summer working there.

    Cons

    Because the position of an Instructor Specialist entails various jobs and is constantly on the go, you are stretched pretty far. This makes it hard to truly invest in campers throughout sessions.

    Pros

    Permanent staff is really supportive and listens when you have questions or need support. It's the perfect place to meet awesome people from all over the United States and the world. Ozark is an amazing place to grow closer to the Lord and teach kids about Jesus, all while having a blast!

    Cons

    It's absolutely exhausting, but if you keep your head and heart focused on the mission it's all worth it.

    I worked at Camp Ozark part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    build relationships with kids, deepen your faith with Jesus Christ, learn time management

    Cons

    Staff is out to get employees- they don't care if your intentions are pure, you're going to get in trouble if you mess up at all, have to find your own housing on weekends which makes the pay seem like little to nothing
