The Onyahsa Association
This membership organization of all current campers and staff, and seeks to include all interested alumni. Annual membership fees of $25 fund the Onyahsa Endowment, to ensure Camp’s viability for future generations. Thus, the Association serves to foster responsibility among its members.
Association members will receive a discounts on non-summer programs, a newsletter, and privileged access to the Association website (including its photo gallery). The $25 Association fee will be assessed to each camper’s first resident week only, and will be good for one calendar year. Current YMCA members who attend camp will be automatically enrolled in the Association at no extra charge. Alumni are strongly encouraged to join the Association to stay connected to Camp, to assist in its capital development, and to obtain these special privileges.
