Did you know...

Camp Onomia has been doing its thing for 67 years. Life is a bit different now than it was in 1949, but what happens at CAMP today is as awesome as ever!
 

We get you unplugged  so you can be yourself. Making friends is easier, and our conversations obout Jesus are casual and meaningful.

Yes we worship, do Bible study, and pray everyday. But at camp you will find these activities pretty laid back, fun, and challenging at the same time!

If you havent noticed, you can get a free Tshirt voucher if you pay your camp fee in full by the March 15th date. Our camp store is full of Onomia gear, water bottles, and (of course) snacks which is open daily.

This is a  new crazy week never offered before. You have probably seen the TV show... this is a take off of that...and it is Onomia style!

the Race... or is it all about God's Grace?
This week will be one for the record books! CAMP EDITION means daily challenges both on site and in mysterious places away from camp. How well do you follow directions? How well can you work together with your partner to accomplish the assigned task? There may be Bible challenges. There may be physical tests that will stretch you. We can only guarantee that we will have fun together as we grow together as a community.
Winners and loosers? Nah... but there will be daily rewards and the chance to lift one another up as partners in Christ.

We'd really love it if you invite someone to join you who hasnt been to Onomia before. It is a chance for you to share this wonderful place with a friend!  Free,  one of a kind Tshirt to all participants, too!
