    I worked at Camp Ozark part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work. You learn how to be a leader and refine skills you didn’t even know you had. You learn what it means to be a true servant and that life really isn’t about you, but is about serving others

    Cons

    It’s a lot of hard work and can be challenging but it’s worth it. The hours are long, but you know what you signed up for. There are a lot of staff so it’s sometimes hard to get to know p staff on a more personal level

  2. "Not Worth It"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Counselor in Mount Ida, AR

    I worked at Camp Ozark full-time

    Pros

    The slides are pretty cool.

    Cons

    They work you to the bone and pay you very little.


  3. "Best Summer Camp in the Country"

    5.0
    Former Employee - Camp Counselor 

    I worked at Camp Ozark part-time

    Pros

    The attention to detail of Camp Ozark is unfathomable...every single child is individually treated like they are the most important thing in the entire world. Your camper will have an unbelievable experience & will develop memories that last a life time. There’s not a better camp out there.

    Cons

    In my experience, I have zero cons about the camp & that is the utmost honest truth.

    1.0

    I worked at Camp Ozark part-time

    I worked at Camp Ozark full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The F.I.T. mentality is great. God first, others second, yourself third....gives you a new perspective that helps tremendously while you're there but lasts forever.

    Cons

    It is tough. Camp can wear on you but as soon as it's over and you go home, you're immediately ready to go back.
