Musical instruments are very welcome at camp. However, please check with musical director Habib Levison at camp before playing during programs.

Dance Mentorship for Young Adults:
Sára Rain will facilitate youth-led dance circles and dance mentorship for younger leaders, so please consider bringing a dance to share!

State Park Group Camp regulations prohibit illegal substances and alcohol. Smoking is only allowed in designated areas. There is no smoking outside the zikr hall. More information about Lake of the Ozarks State Park

It is hoped that you will keep your car in the parking lot closest to your cabin or in the lot near kids' camp. Please, please, please do not park on the grass. The park rangers emphasize this.
