Tag Archives: Spring Meeting

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! 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.

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 two-day corporate retreat for your top fifteen salespeople or a weeklong conference with meals, activities, and classes culminating in an awards ceremony and 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. 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.

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.

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.

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.
