The Camp

For over 100 summers, campers have come to Onondaga Camp to discover the challenges and rewards of outdoor adventure and friendship. A true Canadian summer tradition, Onondaga Camp offers an inclusive environment for young people to play, explore, achieve, and grow.

Onondaga Camp is an overnight camp for children ages 6-16 near Minden, Ontario.  We facilitate over 1,500 campers each summer.  We hire staff on the basis of the soundness and maturity of their judgment, their commitment to being strong role models, and most importantly their ability to establish positive and caring relationships with their campers.
