Onomia is an outdoor
ministry of Lutheran
congregations and exists to
provide spiritual renewal
for all ages through the
Gospel of Jesus Christ
The programs at Camp Onomia
are driven by the conviction
that the Gospel of Jesus
Christ is good news for
sinners, news that the world
needs to hear. Through a
variety of summer and
year-round programs we hope
to assist our churches in
their work of proclamation.
God's Spirit is at work in
this place where we gather
to hear the Word of God in a
different setting, our ears
not ringing with the noises
of our everyday lives. Our
hope is that the various
opportunities at Camp Onomia
will help to re-kindle the
flame of God's Word in those
who gather here.
