Please take a moment to review the links to our Community Partners. These special businesses and organizations have supported the mission of Camp Ondessonk through gifts and sponsorships, and we ask you to consider patronizing these Community Partners when you have the need. By bringing together key organizations from across the community, these leaders, thinkers, and doers help fuel our mission to provide “exceptional outdoor and spiritual adventures empowering kids of all ages”. The goal of these relationships is a partnership that strengthens the broader community. Our partners have contributed in so many ways including fundraising campaigns, advocacy initiatives, and volunteer support. These relationships have helped ensure Camp Ondessonk can continue to provide scholarships for children for Summer Camp, free local after school care and educational programs, and outdoor education school group scholarships.
Camp Ondessonk has proudly served campers since the summer of 1959. Ondessonk’s 983 acre site is adjacent to the Shawnee National Forest and is among the most scenic summer camps in the United States. The Ondessonk Experience is deliberately designed to immerse participants in a setting not often encountered by the youths of today. This traditional approach to summer camping allows participants to fully experience their surroundings in a fun, adventurous, and supportive environment.
