summer youth camps

Summer Youth Camp: it's the bomb!
Cabin groups led by trained college aged staff. Daily worship, Bible study, age appropriate activities, games and camp crafts create a wonderful time together in Christian community.
Camp is a significant experience that will last a lifetime. Join us this summer!

Due to the unpredictability of the virus, Camp will be following guidelines set by the state and CDC during the period camp is in session. Look for an update on this by June 1.


Camp Onomia strives to keep the cost of the summer camp experience down, but we all have experienced significant rises in the cost of food and utilities and many everyday items that we haven't worried about before. In 2022, the estimated cost per camper to attend a week at camp is almost $900. Camp donations from individuals and congregations subsidize this real cost of a session at camp by almost 40%. What does that mean for you? We ask that you consider an added donation as you are able this year to help us continue this tradition of supporting kids from all financial situations to attend Onomia.
always, we NEVER  turn a child away from camp due to financial hardship.


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. Lodging will be together in our retreat center! Staff lead activities!
