Ozark Parks & Recreation Dept. offers 4 full-time summer day camps.

Campers meet at the Finley River Park, daily Monday - Friday, at 7am; pick-up @ Finley River Park between 4:30 pm to 6pm.
Each camp has a different activity schedule, which includes field trips, swimming, visits to The OC, and other locations in a 30-mile radius. These can all be found in the tabs below.

The camps begin the day after Ozark Schools are out for the summer, and run through the day before Ozark schools resume in August. Our registration is a full summer commitment, however, if you are interested in a partial summer, we can add your name to a wait list and will contact you if a space becomes available.
