Camp Ozark is America's largest single-site Christian sports and adventure camp for kids ages 7-17 located in the Ouachita National Forest in Arkansas. We hire over 700 college-aged students from over 40 universities to work with over 6,000 kids each summer. We offer flexible work durations enabling students to take summer classes or study abroad not committing their entire summer to one place. We also offer internship credit to students who accept the type of experience we offer. Check out our opportunities here.

Sign up online for a casual, non-committal, 20-30 minute interview while we're on campus. Interviews are not a commitment to work on your part. They're an opportunity for you to get to know us better and for us to get to know you better; however, the interview is the first step and potentially adds an option for you when deciding where you will be spending your summers.

Please contact me anytime with questions!
