The Onyahsa Summer offers seven integrated residential programs during each youth camp week; Traditional, three specialties, Academy, Teen, and Leader-in-Training sessions. In addition, Day Camp in the Woods will run for eight weeks. Prior to, and following the youth summer camp program, Mini Camp, family camp-outs, and adult programs are also available. During the school year we also offer monthly youth, parent-child, adult, and family weekend programs from September - May!
Resident youth campers live in rustic single-sex, age-graded cabins, tents, or dorms under the supervision of carefully selected and trained staff members. The Camp's directors and health staff also reside on site, and provide 24 hour per day supervision, and the Camp has a staff to camper ratio of at least 1:8. The typical camper population at Onyahsa is 110 per week.
All resident youth campers participate together in our special activities, such as campfires, skits, Club Time, theme nights, Olympic games, village nights, and other all-camp programs. Meanwhile, through age-group cabin and tent living with their staff members, campers learn to share and live cooperatively as members of small groups. The activities and living areas are staffed with well-qualified and highly committed counselors, who share the goal of making a stay at Onyahsa a truly rewarding experience for all members of the Camp Community.
