Camp Osprey Logo


Camp Osprey was created to provide children aged 7 to 15 with a fun and safe summer camp environment. As long time Florida residents, both Gary and Sandy have come to love this area and are excited to welcome campers to enjoy the same local activities they have enjoyed with their own family.

          My name is Sandy Bembry, and I have been married to Gary Bembry for 36 years. I am a registered nurse with years of experience in Orthopedics, Neurology, and Cardiac care. I have lived in this area since 1969, and I have been a school nurse for the School Board of Manatee County since 2010, serving in high school, middle school, elementary, and pre-k grade levels. I was also a part of the Manatee County Concussion Team. Additionally, I have worked as a camp nurse for several summers, which inspired me to open my own camp.

          As a mother of five active sons and a passionate advocate for children, my priority is to provide a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for children to grow and make treasured memories. I believe in the saying, "It takes a village to raise a child," and I promise to care for your children as if they were my own.

          I am a Christian, and I believe in the power of prayer. We often pray for every aspect of camp and hold a weekly, voluntary Bible study on-site. While we welcome campers and counselors from all faith backgrounds, our Christian faith is a driving force behind everything that we do. We will never force our beliefs on anyone, but we will share our faith if we are asked.

          I am excited to meet you and get to know your children, and I hope that you will have peace of mind knowing that they are well-cared for and happy.
