Registration Information

Ozark Sufi Camp is held in the Lake of the Ozarks State Park outside Osage Beach, Missouri. Campers may arrive after 1 pm on Friday, May 26 to complete registration and receive a cabin assignment.

NOTE: If you have a scholarship, please contact the registrar for the appropriate coupon code to use with the online registration system.

We are encouraging campers to register early, as we have limited space in the cabins. There will be a waiting list after all the indoor spaces are filled, so if the registration portal is closed, please contact the registrar to be on the waiting list for cabin space or to register as a tent or vehicle camper.

Re-Entry Policy: Once you check in to camp, to ensure the safety and protection of everyone, please do not leave and re-enter camp. Campers are asked to not leave the State Park, go into town, etc. and re-enter the camp. NOTE: This policy is due to the risk of COVID in town at the time of camp and may change if infection rates are low.

Camp “officially” ends with Closing Zikr Circle on Tuesday, May 30. All campers are asked to depart campgrounds by 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 31, to allow time for camp staff to load equipment, clean facilities, and complete a final walk-thru with State Park staff. If you have the time, please consider staying an hour or two to assist our staff with these tasks. If you are unable to help in this way, please help by departing by 10 a.m.

Facilities at Camp Rising Sun  are handicapped-accessible, including the 18-person, group cabins with showers and restrooms.

Limited vehicle and tent camping is an option with advance permission of Camp Registrar Aziza Riely:

Cabin Requests
We always attempt to meet your request regarding type of cabin (family, couples, women, men, co-ed, easy access, tent camping, RV camping) as listed on your registration form. If there is a specific cabin you want to stay in, or you would like to be placed with particular people, please note this in the “Comments” section of your registration form! We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but cannot guarantee placement in specific cabins.

Special Dietary Considerations
Our goal is to serve our campers healthy and delicious food at every meal. There are alternative food choices like non-gluten, vegan, and vegetarian at every meal. However, if you have a special diet, you are the best judge of what you need to eat. There is refrigeration available if you choose to bring your own food.
