Often, when you imagine a meeting held at a hotel you think of large ballrooms filled with attendees, buffets laden with food, and keynote speakers. Here at Camden, we host many a large conference or convention, but as a planner, you may not always need a grand scale production. There are many other occasions you might need our sales and catering expertise.
We’re the perfect spot not just for large conventions but for small meetings as well and in this week’s blog we’ll talk about a few different options in which you can bring your small group to Camden!
Retreats for Work & Play
Sometimes you have to break out of the norm in order to hit that breakthrough moment with your team. Why not schedule a retreat for your team complete with team-building exercises and brain storming sessions mixed with a little R&R? With our flexible meeting space and top-notch resort amenities you can plan the ideal mixture of work and play. Hit the books (or the spreadsheets!) in the morning and hit the spa or the links in the afternoon. All while being taken care of by our expert Banquets Team.
Your team can stay on property and visit Spa 54, the pool and hot tubs or Camden Boutique or you can even schedule a private shuttle to bring your attendees to and from an area golf course. And don’t worry about knowing everything our Lake of the Ozarks Area has to offer for activities. Your specially assigned Convention Services Manager will lay out all of the options, both onsite and off, and walk you through the planning process.
Small Meetings with Big Results
At Camden, we offer a variety of meeting room options depending on the size and needs of your group. That’s why we’re the optimal spot for board meetings, planning meetings, classes or exams. And with a full catering menu you’ll be able to keep your group fueled and working to get the best results. From breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and breaks, plated or buffet, you are sure to find a winning combination of meals and snacks for any size group. Have a specific theme in mind? Our culinary team is happy to create a custom menu that works within your group size and budget.
Unwind & Recharge
Perhaps you’d like to incentivize your sales team by sending your top ten (or fifty!) earners on a special trip or maybe you’re in charge of organizing your church’s annual marriage retreat and you want to spice things up this year. Or it could be you’d just like to get your old crew back together again for a week or weekend of bonding on the golf course. There’s always a reason to unwind and recharge and Camden is the ideal spot for it.
There’s no doubt you and your guests are due for some extra special pampering and there’s no better way than treating yourself to a luxurious spa day…or two! Spa 54 is a full-service AVEDA™ salon and spa located onsite at Camden on the Lake. They offer a variety of services from hair, skin, and nail care, facials, peels and massage.
The resort property features two onsite shopping outlets. Camden Boutique is stocked full of upscale and on-trend home décor items, gifts, jewelry and accessories, logoed and brand name apparel. The Boutique is located right off the lobby in the hotel and is open daily from 9am-8pm for your browsing convenience.
On the bottom floor of the Horny Toad Entertainment Complex is Toad Market carrying all the goodies you need for a summer day at the Lake. They carry swim suits and hats, gifts and souvenirs, as well as snacks and more!
Camden on the Lake is home to H. Toad’s Bar & Grill, a year-round restaurant featuring casual upscale American fare. H. Toad’s hosts a well-rounded menu of soup and salads, shareable appetizers, tasty burgers and sandwiches, and creative entrees of pasta, steak, and fish – including gluten-free options. You can’t forget about dessert or drinks! H. Toad’s bar is open daily kicking up area-favorite frozen blended drinks as well as beer, wine, and classic cocktails.
Fun on the Water
Being located on the 7MM of the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks, you want to be sure to schedule in some time to get out on the water. There are several safe and fun ways to do so. Rent boats or jet skis right off the boardwalk from Bombay Boat Rental. Charter a private cruise with or without dinner and drinks. Book a fishing charter to guide you to the best fishing hotspots on the lake.
Rest in Luxury
With 116 guest rooms, most of which are lake view suites, you can rest assured that your guests will be impressed with their accommodations when you book your group stay at Camden on the Lake. All of Camden’s guest rooms, be it a studio or a suite, feature top-notch amenities such as plush, high thread-count linens, oversized walk-in tiled showers, flat-screen TVs, comfy lounge furniture and kitchenettes. Your guests can recharge in luxury, ready for the next session.
As a conference and special event planner, you will have the say in how you want your guests to book. You can choose to coordinate it all with a rooming list or guests can book online or by phone using a special code custom to your event. Either way, Camden’s staff will be here to make sure booking your rooms goes as smoothly as possible.
That’s Not All
Your trip wouldn’t be complete without taking advantage of everything else Camden on the Lake has to offer. Work out in the onsite fitness room. Enjoy the comfort of the lobby lounge each morning, taking in the beautiful lake views, with a gourmet coffee or espresso from Camden Coffee Bar. Grab a hot slice from Toad Pizza*, take a dip in the pool* or relax in one of the two hot tubs. Catch a free concert on the boardwalk Horny Toad Stage summer weekend nights*.
