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.

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. 

Spa 54

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!

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.

Summer is in full force here at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. There’s no better time for a quick getaway with a couple girlfriends or your family before school starts back up. But perhaps you’ve got something else on your mind. Does your office, company or team need a getaway, too? Now is the perfect time to plan a Fall Sales Meeting, Awards Ceremony, Team Building Retreat or any other kind of conference or event you may need.

Fall is a very popular time for conferences at Camden on the Lake Resort and for good reason! There are so many perks to holding your meeting or event with us any time of the year, but there’s something particularly special about a Fall conference. Read on to learn why!

The Toad

The Lake

Undeniably, a big part of what makes Fall such a great time to get your team together is the Lake of the Ozarks and here at Camden, we embrace that. Situated on the 7 Mile Marker of the lake, our property features an expansive boardwalk that runs along the waterfront connecting one end of the resort to the other.

In Fall, the weather here is usually very pretty and the traffic on the water slows down from the rush of the summer. This makes it the ideal time to take advantage of being on the water.

Private Charters & Cruises

Take your event or meeting on the water by chartering a private boat cruise. Your group can be picked up and dropped off right from the Camden boardwalk. You can really customize your experience with meal and drink choices on the cruise, as well, and your Sales Manager can help you with every step of the planning process.  

Boat & Jet Ski Rental

If you’d like to give your attendees a block of free time or structured activity, there is also the option of boat and jet ski rental right off the boardwalk with Bombay Boat Rental. Rent a group of boats complete with captains and cove out for the day with your team or let loose on a jet ski ripping through the water.

Lakeside Receptions

Another very popular option is to host a lakeside reception or happy hour. Here at Camden, we have a full-service banquet staff and catering menu complete with a fully customizable bar experience. You can choose combinations like a hosted happy hour with hor d’oeuvres on the waterfront boardwalk before going inside to a more formal sit-down plated dinner with a cash bar. The choice is yours and we will be here to help you plan it from start to finish.  

Rent a Boat

Custom Meeting Experience

Our resort complex features over 19,000 feet of flexible meeting space as well as multiple dining options throughout the resort whether it’s catered meals or a la carte menu choices.

Flexible Meeting Space

Your specially-assigned Convention Services Manager will guide you in choosing the right room or rooms for your event by group theme, activities, and size. For example, the Theatre Room, with its stadium-style seating and a large projected screen is perfect not only for a Movie Night event but for classes and lectures where you can utilize the large screen for demonstration purposes.

On the first floor of the resort is the lake view Grand Ballroom which can be converted into three separate meeting rooms when needed. The Lakeside Room has large garage doors that can be opened up to the lakeside boardwalk for an open-air feel. If you’re looking for a smaller room to have a team breakout or a board meeting, the Camden Conference Room provides nicely, whereas the Harbor Ballroom, with its bars and dance floor, is the ultimate setting for an evening reception.

H. Toad’s also features a private space called Toadcove Room that is perfect for holding more intimate meals, meetings, parties and receptions. You can mix and match with a preset menu of H. Toad’s selections or choose from the catering menu. The choice is yours!

Toad Island is the Horny Toad’s island-inspired waterfront bar & grill. Since Toad Island is seasonally open to the public in the summer, it’s a popular place to host a private special event, dinner or social in the Fall. Your guests can play games like beer pong, sip on a frozen drink and sample tasty island nosh. Just inquire about availability in booking it for your group.
