summer youth camps
You are valued here!
Consider this your personal invitation to attend one of our awesome programs at Onomia
SUMMER YOUTH CAMPS
for grades K-11
SUMMER FAMILY & ADULT CAMPS
WEEKEND YOUTH AND ADULT retreats all year round!
There is no better place to explore the most important values in life.
Onomia lifts up the firm foundation of its Lutheran theological heritage while encouraging people of all faiths to encounter Christ in this holy place. Therefore, we pledge to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God as in Micah 6:8.
The camp experience DOES make a difference!
Our core values:
+ Significant. The camp experience has proven to be a significant foundation in the development of Christian faith and values in both children and adults. Therefore we will provide program and curriculum which is Christ centered and age level appropriate.
+Relevant. What happens at camp doesn't stay at camp but must be relevant to life back home. Therefore the "mountaintop experience" at camp will become a benefit to family, community, and congregation long after the last campfire goes out.
+Intentional. From sunrise to sunset, all activities will intentionally focus on the concept of "loving like Jesus". Therefore in the rhythm of camp life, we are called to experience the ups and downs of living life in Christian community together... with grace, compassion, and forgiveness.
