Your registration fee entitles you to eat at the buffet at the Trout Lodge.  Spouses and/or guests may also purchase a day pass at the price of $30 that entitles him or her to use of the facility along with the lunch buffet at the Trout Lodge. (There are no longer just “meal charges”).  When you’re done eating, why not spend the day? By registering you receive a day pass that will allow you to partake in any of the many activities the camp has to offer.  It is important, however, that if you do bring guests, they be registered and paid for.  Check out their website at www.ymcaoftheozarks.org.
