Welcome Ozarks Alumni!

Welcome to the YMCA of the Ozarks Alumni Page
It's OK to wish you were back at camp just one more time. Here, you can reconnect with YMCA Trout Lodge, Camp Lakewood and fellow alums. It may have been years since you've stepped on the grounds of YMCA of the Ozarks, but we'll bet the memories are just as clear as they were "back in the day".

Nothing brings back the memories like the old camp songs. Thanks to our Alumni Committee, you can reminisce through a camp song booklet!

Giving Back
Are you able to give back to a place that holds dear memories for you? Would you like to make a difference in the lives of many people by making a donaion to the YMCA's Strong Community Campaign? There are many children who would love to go to camp and have all of the fantastic experiences and memories to take home with them, but can't because of financial constraints. There are special needs groups who require financial assistance in order to attend - groups with children who live with cancer, HIV/AIDS, Crohn's Disease, have a limb loss, is blind or has Diabetes. Struggling families need financial support to come and spend time reconnecting with each other and work out their own critical issues. You CAN make a difference with a simple act of kindness and giving back. You may say, my little bit won't help, but remember this: Your donation with another alum's donation with another's quickly adds up and does make a major impact in many lives - lives that are changed because of YOU! Please contact Barbara Campbell at 573-438-2154 ext. 219 or via email at bcampbell@ymcastlouis.org for more information. Thank you!
We would love to hear from you. If there is any way we can be of assistance to you, simply contact us at bcampbell@ymcastlouis.org, or by calling (573) 438-2154 ext. 219. Welcome home Alums!
