  • The parent/guardian will be responsible for feedings and diaper changes. If these needs arise, the parent/guardian will be asked to return to the KidZone.
  • Disruptive children will need to be picked up by their parent/guardian upon notification from The OC staff.
  • KidZone staff will not be responsible for lost clothing or other items.
  • The parent/guardian signing the child in must be the same person signing them out to ensure safety.

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

Campers meet at the Finley River Park, daily Monday - Friday, at 7am (or anytime thereafter, parents will have to meet the campers where they are at); 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.

Grade Breakdown of Various Camps

Let's Play Camp - Finishing K through Finishing 2ndGreat Adventure - Finishing 3rd through Finishing 6th
Middle School Camp - Finishing 7th through 8thCamper in Transition/Counselor in Training - Finishing 9th and 10th

Please note - Maximum capacity for Let’s Play and Great Adventure Camp is 140 campers, so early registration is a must. There is a maximum number of part-time, or 3 day per week, options available, and these are given on registration day on a "first come, first serve" basis.

Campers who wish to have a 3 day per week option can register for the 5 day per week option, and be put on a list to switch as a part time option become available.

Let’s Play Camp will be divided into two "units," and will be ran as different Camps. Let’s Play Unit 1 and Unit 2 will have completely different schedules, and operate on different buses. The same is true for Great Adventure Unit 1 and Unit 2. If you wish for your child to be with their friend, please note that on your registration packet. Units will be put together primarily based on age (when building Let’s Play Camp Unit 1, we will place primarily K and 1, whereas Unit 2 may have more 1st and 2nd grade).
