About Onyahsa

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 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.
