Core Beliefs and Benefits!campers cross

+ Significant. The camp experience has proven to be significant stepping stone in the development of Christian faith and values in both children and adults. Therefore we will provide program and curriculum which is Christ centered and age level appropriate.

+Intentional. From sunrise to sunset, all activities  in Onomia programmed events will intentionally focus on the concept of "loving like Jesus". Therefore in the rythm of camp life, guest and staff alike are called to experience the ups and downs of living life in Christian community  together... with grace and forgiveness.

+Relevant. What happens at camp doesn't stay at camp but must be relevant to life back home. Therefore the "mountaintop experiece" at camp will become a benefit to family, community, and congregation long after the last campfire goes out.

+Foundation. Onomia lifts up the firm foundation of its Luheran theological heritage while encouraging people of all faiths to encounter Christ in this holy place. Therefore, we pledge to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God as in Micah 6:8.
