Fall Festivities at Camp Ondessonk
By Elizabeth Dirnbeck
Camp Ondessonk was humming with excitement October 28, 2023, with close to 200 individuals onsite for the 13th Annual Ondessonk Trail Races and the Ondessonk Fall Festival. Despite the poor weather conditions, participants managed to stay dry and enjoy all the fun the weekend had to offer.
The leaves changed to vibrant colors just in time to set the tone for the day’s events along with numerous Camp activities that were offered during the Fall Festival. Participants of all ages could be found creating handicrafts, riding ponies, or roasting s’mores and hot dogs for a quick snack.
Fifty-eight runners participated in the 13th Annual Ondessonk Trail Races. This event featured a 5k Fun Run and the 10k Manchester Trail that took runners through the wet but beautiful forests, canyons, and pastures of Camp Ondessonk.
Congratulations to our winners!
