Friends of Camp
Friends of Camp Ondessonk give thousands of hours of their time and talent, and a wealth of support in the form of gifts-in-kind and monetary gifts. Some call it “Camp Magic” ….some say “It’s just what we do!” ….we call it a blessing. Camp Ondessonk thrives because of our friends and family.

For fifty-five years, Camp Ondessonk has been blessed with strong support from thousands of volunteers. Ondessonk volunteers come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. Some have qualifications for a specific job; others are motivated by a simple desire to serve. Volunteers have the opportunity to be a camper’s hero by contributing to the organization. Further, volunteers often create strong bonds of friendship through shared experiences with staff members and other volunteers.
Since the beginning, generations of Camp Friends donate their TIME, TALENT and TREASURE, allowing us to offer the superior programs and facilities that open the doors to a lifetime of opportunity. Your stewardship gifts can help us achieve our vision of becoming the world’s best youth camp!
