Camp Ondessonk

Sessions: June 2-August 3, 2024

Camp Ondessonk, a residential youth summer camp, 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 cabins, facilities, and programs are deliberately designed to immerse participants in a setting not often encountered today. This traditional approach to summer camping allows participants to fully experience their surroundings in a fun, adventurous, and supportive environment.

Camp Ondessonk’s summer camp programs are designed for children ages 8-16 years old. We strive to meet the highest health and safety standards and are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. This accreditation means that Camp Ondessonk thoroughly reviews operational practices, seeks the wisdom of other summer camp professionals, and continually makes improvements within our summer camp program to comply with more than 300 written standards. Only one-fourth of summer camps in the United States have earned this mark of distinction. Additionally, Camp Ondessonk’s Equestrian Program is accredited by the Certified Horsemanship Association.
