Why is there a Camp Lookout?

College of the Ozarks is a private, Christian college dedicated to helping students as well as the community. C of O, known as "Hard Work U", provides scholarships to financially needy students who work campus jobs to pay for their tuition. We also want to extend our helping hand to younger children by making certain that a lack of finances doesn't keep them from enjoying a summer camp experience.
