We have a wonderful opportunity for kids who want to go to camp like their older siblings, but just aren't old enough to handle time away from mom and dad.  This session is a simple overnight camp that the parent experiences along side their child.  Kids stay with their parent/guardian during the nighttime hours in the Retreat Center.  During the day, we fill their time with activities, Bible stories, and lots of fun.

Calling All

We may even have a job for you!

We have two programs
 just for you!

We know how much you love Camp Onomia and we hope that you can come back in your high school years to have some fun and to continue to grow your faith in this special place!

The NEW NIGHT HAWK program is a refreshing take on the Night Owl week you've loved. Look for more chances to lead and more challenging activities.

We have redesigned the old CIT and LEAD programs to engage you more fully in leadership training. We then bring you back for a second week of camp to help out when younger kids from your church are here. A sort of peer ministry experience and it is just for youth completing their 10th and 11 grade years. (You will need to be referred to us by your pastor or church youth leader to attend.)
Drop them an email and say you are interested!
