Enrollees stand at attention outside a building
being constructed.

CCC enrollees are inspected inside the barracks.
Camp Ozone started as a tent city, with little
permanence and the men sheltered by only
thin fabric.
The barracks, located along Main Street,
provided a shelter and moved the men out
of the elements, keeping them healthier and
offering a safe place to rest at night.
Today Camp Ozone is only foundations and
small stone structures.  The building walls
were removed and sent to military
facilities.  CCC uniforms were sent to China
after patches and insignia were removed.

Preparing daily meals for hundreds of men was a
full-time job, and included serving large batches of
common recipe foods in the dining hall. Special
effort was made for holiday meals.
 CCC enrollees learned meat butchering skills,
which led to future career opportunties.
During the Great Depression, may men were
undernourished and underweight. The average
enrollee gained 10 to 12 pounds. This met part
of the goal to rebuild the nation's young men.
The ice house kept perishable foods cool during
hot Arkansas summers.  Working in the
building was an enviable job during those steamy
days. The men used large metal tongs to move the
large blocks of ice.
The kitchen staff, composed of CCC enrollees,
was responsible for feeding everyone in
the camp three times a day.
