Registration and Accommodations:

To reserve a space at camp, a $100 minimum per adult must be paid when you register. If you are on a half-scholarship, pay $100 or the balance, which ever is less. The remainder of the balance should be paid by Friday May 1st or make arrangements with registrars ASAP.

Camp fees are really discounted for registering and paying early! This helps you out financially and helps us get ready for camp.

Friday Afternoon Retreat at Red Bud
You must pre-register with Camp Manager Gayan Galik for the Red Bud Friday Afternoon Retreat. If you need a ride between Rising Sun and Red Bud for this retreat, contact Safia at by Wed May 20.

Tent Camping and RV vehicles
Tent camping is not permitted within group camps by park ranger regulations. Exceptions were made in the past due to Pin Oak unavailability but now we have Red Bud as our overflow camp. If you want to tent, plan to reserve a campsite with the State Park and we will discount your camp fees to reimburse your the cost of the campground fee. Contact Gayan about this ASAP for details.

There has been a tradition of a couple of small RVs allowed by special permission and arranged ahead of time in the past. Contact Gayan about this ASAP for details.

For more information about tents and RVs , please contact Camp Manager Gayan Galik, at email or call her at 612-702-4535.

Transportation To and From Camp
This year we're trying something new: we have a staff member assisting campers with coordinating rides to and from the airport, as well as helping potential carpoolers find each other.

If you are in need of transportation or have a seat in your car to share, please email Ferzin Irani at with "Ozark Camp Rides" in the subject line. If you are offering to provide a ride, please let Ferzin know if you have any requirements or requests, e.g. gas money, love offering, mobility assistance, etc.

Scholarships, Early Arrival, and All Other Matters:
Please contact Gayan Galik, Camp Manager,
