Why Choose Camp Onyahsa
Make memories for life.
Our motto from a half-century ago still holds true!
Onyahsa offers varied traditional camp activities; it does not focus on sports, arts, or other specialties. Instead, we strive for holistic youth development and the building of friendships.
Activities include boating, swimming, crafts, nature instruction, Challenge Course, athletics, and camper choice clubs during the days. Evenings offer campfires, skit nights, village (small group) programs, movies or live music, and a closing ceremony.
Cabins for young campers and those of varied abilities are heated with single-occupancy bathrooms. Accommodations for older campers consist of seasonal cabins. All cabins house up to eight campers. In addition, the site offers playing fields, a vast waterfront, playground, Recreation Center, dining hall, athletic court, and much more along 30 acres of lakefront and 170 acres of forest.
Participants of varied abilities are welcome; and our program seeks to be accessible and our facility inclusive; central buildings are equipped with ramps and ADA bathrooms, our playground is inclusive, and part of the Camp is accessed via a stamped concrete sidewalk.
Summer Camps and Year-Round Camp
Summer camps are the heart of what we do! September-May camps keep the spirit of summer going all year, with weather-appropriate overnight programs on weekends for small groups of campers, as well as rentals to other groups.
