Our Awesome Staff
Camp Onomia was born in 1949 by an association of Lutheran congregations desiring to establish "a place set apart" for Christian nurture and study. The founding name of the camp was American Lutheran Memorial Camp.
For over 70 years we have provided our churches and families refuge, recreation, and renewal in our journey of faith.
"Camp Onomia offers a life changing experience which invites all people
to encounter Christ through Creation and Community."
Onomia is governed by an association of congregations offering programs and facilities to people of all ages and backgrounds. We are a faith-based ministry which seeks to serve all people, faiths, and denominations. We welcome all regardless of race, creed, or sexual identity.
We are a member of Lutheran Outdoor Ministries, an ELCA camping organization.
Camp Onomia receives no synodical or national church funding. Approximately 33% of our operating budget comes through fees charged for programs and site rental. Member congregations reduce summer camp fees by over 45% through annual dues. The balance of our support comes through individual and group donations.
