The Onyahsa Community is a friendly group of people from varied cultural, economic, social, and ability-based backgrounds.
While participants who experience Onyahsa tend to return, we warmly welcome many newcomers each year. A lot of these new members arrive without knowing anyone else at camp, but they leave with friends for a lifetime!
- Most of our campers and staff reside within 100 miles of the Camp, but we also welcome participants from throughout the US and Canada; in addition to our growing enrollment from most continents.
- Participants with handicapping conditions are also valued community members.
- Our diversity helps youth to prepare for life in the Global Age, while common values; especially Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, and Caring, unite us.
