Like it or not, the Holiday Season will be here before you know it. Don’t worry, here at Camden on the Lake Resort, we wouldn’t dream of skipping over Halloween or Thanksgiving but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t hurt to start planning your end-of-the-season celebration or Holiday Party.

There are so many reasons to celebrate and so many forms that your celebration can take! At Camden, we specialize in creating a custom experience to fit your wishes and needs. Here are just a few ideas to get you started planning your Holiday Party today!

Pick Your Perk

When you choose to have your Holiday Party at Camden, you can also enjoy special perks with our special Holiday Package Perks:

The Space to Fit Your Needs

Flexible Meeting Space

Our resort complex features over 19,000 feet of flexible meeting space. That means there are a variety of ways you can utilize the meeting space. Whether you’d like to plan a holiday retreat for your top fifteen salespeople or an awards ceremony with a plated dinner for 200, we can turn your vision into reality. The Sales and Banquet Team at Camden will help you plan your event of any size from the first spark to final realization.

From Small to Large

We have several meeting rooms of varying sizes and styles to choose from and 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.

On the first floor of the resort is the lake view Grand Ballroom which can be converted into three separate rooms when needed by closing an airwall. The Lakeside Room has large garage doors that can be opened up to the lakeside boardwalk for an open-air feel, whereas the Harbor Ballroom, with its bars and dance floor, is the ultimate setting for an evening reception.

Multiple Dining Options

Catered Meals

After you’ve chosen the right space for your event, your Convention Services Manager will assist in planning out your group’s celebration meal. You’ll be able to create a fully satisfying event with our catering menu. 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 party. Have a specific theme in mind? Our culinary team is happy to create a custom menu that works within your group size and budget. 

Parties & Receptions

If you’re planning an event that involves more than food, let us help you plan a bar into your party or reception. You can choose from different options such as whether it will be a hosted bar or a cash bar. We can set up bars in any of the meeting rooms as well as on the boardwalk, where your guests can marvel at the beauty of the lake and at your superior planning skills.

A La Carte & More

For even more options, 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 and is a great choice for inviting your guests to order a la carte by providing meal vouchers for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Your Convention Services Manager can help you with this as well!

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. 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.

Take the Elevator Home

Coming in from out of town or perhaps you’d like to extend the party into a restful retreat for your guests? Plan ahead to take the elevator home from your celebration to a spacious suite at Camden! With 116 guest rooms, most of which are lake view suites, you can rest assured that your guests will be taken away with their accommodations when you book your group stay at Camden on the Lake. All of our guest rooms feature top-notch amenities such as high thread-count linens, oversized walk-in tiled showers, flat-screen TVs, comfy lounge furniture and kitchenettes. Your guests can recharge in luxury.

As a 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. 

Turn Your Vision Into Reality

If you’ve been dreaming of a Holiday Party at the Lake, now is the time to turn your vision into reality. It will be here before you know it so you’ll want to start planning as soon as you can.

There are many ways to get started. Feel free to reach out to the Sales Department at 573-365-5620 or sales@camdenonthelake.com or you can fill out the request for proposal form online and a Sales Manager will get in touch with you. We look forward to working with you!
