About Camp Onyahsa

Camp Onyahsa is a friendly community of varied cultural, economic, social, and ability-based backgrounds.

While participants who experience Onyahsa tend to return, we welcome many newcomers each year. Many 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 Camp Onyahsa, 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 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.
