Tag Archives: meetings at the lake

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.

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.

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?

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.

Party on the Boardwalk

FREE Live Entertainment

Every Friday and Saturday night during the busy season the boardwalk is transformed into an open-air, lake-view concert venue. This year it begins on May 15th and 16th with Five Turn Knot performing on the Horny Toad Stage. All of our live entertainment is FREE to attend for anyone – public or hotel guests – and that includes your conference attendees! Look ahead and plan your meeting around that evening’s entertainment. 

Lakeside Fun

The Horny Toad Boardwalk is always hoppin’ during the Summer months, especially on weekends. Meeting-goers can also enjoy the two hot tubs, swim-up bar, and lakeside lounge furniture. You’ll want to plan in some downtime for your attendees to cut loose by the pool. 

Some weekends even feature a special party or a live DJ by the pool and games along the boardwalk. Like and follow our Facebook page for event info ahead of time.      

Concert at Night

Group Outings & Activities

Fun On and Off the Water

One perk of being a lakefront resort is easy access to lake activities and there are several ways to enjoy the water. Plan an evening lake cruise for your guests with hors d’oeuvres and drinks or simply give them the option to rent boats (with or without captains) and personal watercraft directly from our boardwalk. If you want to get off the water for a while, plan a golf outing or a spa day. Whatever you choose, we can help guide you through the process of planning the ultimate outing for your group.
