Camp Ondessonk offers facility rental during non-summer months. When not hosting a special weekend event, Camp functions as an event venue and campground. Our site is perfect for families or groups to spend the weekend in nature and enjoy our 983 acres adjacent to Shawnee National Forest. Explore all that Camp has to offer, as well as nearby wonders such as Bell Smith Springs, Burden Falls and Trigg Tower!
Sleep in a treehouse, pitch a tent, or for those who don’t wish to rough it, rent a hostel-style room in our St. Noel Retreat & Conference Center or one of our heated bunk-house cabins. Visitors can order meals and schedule programs/activities, such as archery, the climbing tower, the high challenge course, horseback riding, and more!
We host families, scout troops, school groups, and church groups, and have the capacity for up to 400 people. Need meeting space for your event? Choose from a multitude of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, such as our rustic Old Dining Hall or the Cabana!

Larger groups wanting facility rental with meals and programs should contact Camp first about availability several months in advance – especially during the busier spring and fall months. Call (618) 695-2489 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
