What our Guests Say!
I just can't believe all the wonderful improvements that they have been making. This has been an excellent retreat. When can we come back?
What our Campers Say!
Camp has been great. My counselor was awesome. I even liked the Bible studies!
What our Member Congregations Say!
I fully support the ministries at Onomia. They have great staff, solid Lutheran theology, and the kids come back totally excited about their faith.
What our Parents Say!
wanted to say thank you so much for the camp experience that our kids had
this year! This is always one of (our Kid's) favorite parts of their summer,
but they said that this was their best time ever. Neither of them could stop
talking about it...(one) even got tears in his eyes as he told us about
getting his feet washed. Thank you for the ministry that you share with our
kids. The connection that they felt to God while they were at camp has been
so evident in their constant singing and stories! We feel so blessed that
our kids are able to go to camp each summer. Thank you for all that you do
and your dedication to helping our kids learn how to love like Jesus!
