Adopt a Horse
Our campers cherish the memories and experiences provided by our beloved herd of 75+ horses, and our enthusiastic, dedicated riding instructors. Adopting a Horse is a great way to make a difference in the lives of thousands of Camp Ondessonk campers. For the adoption fee, adopters provide for food, veterinary care, equipment maintenance and replacement, and other needs for the horse of their choice.
Many of us have a special activity, a program or a location at Camp Ondessonk that taps our happy memories. Some want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to experience the wonder of camping in the Shawnee National Forest. Whatever your interests, Ondessonk offers many oppotunities for you to support the area that interests you the most. Contact Camp at 618-695-2485 to learn more about giving a restricted gift.
Camp is always in need of all those little things that help make camp run smooth. If you would rather make a purchase and donate it to camp, click here to see the latest Wish List! The list is updated frequently, so check back often.
