For over 100 years, campers have come to Onondaga Camp each summer to discover the challenges and rewards of outdoor adventure. A true Canadian summer tradition, Onondaga Camp provides an inclusive environment where young people can play, explore, achieve and grow. Offering over 30 different activities, campers have the opportunity to experience the best in outdoor adventure.
Onondaga is one of the oldest camps in the country. It was established by Keith Crowther, a staff member of Upper Canada College, and was moved to its current site in 1931, and it’s been co-ed since 1975. There’s a lot of history, and the current owners, all past campers, bought the camp in 1992 and have since developed the property, including a new dining hall completed in 2004. While the site may not show its age in the way that other camps might, the program continues to reflect the ideals that were established with the founding of the camp all those years ago. Traditional activities have been augmented over the years, including high ropes, wakeboarding, and a driving range for golf instruction. The breadth of programming is a draw, both for campers looking to further develop their skills, as well as those interested in trying new things. The board of directors includes three past directors, which, in addition to Duncan Robertson’s 25 years at Onondaga, offers a nice continuity to the maintenance and development of the camp experience.
The safety and well-being of our camp community remains our number one priority.
While things are changing every day, Onondaga Camp continues to plan for a safe and fun-filled summer for both campers and staff. We understand that certain protocols and policies may be in place for next summer and will look to our local health unit, health professionals, the government and the Ontario Camps Association for guidance to ensure a safe program for all.
Despite the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we continue to work towards an incredible summer at camp – something all of our campers truly deserve. We do, however, want to reassure our families that, just as we did last summer, in the unlikely event that Onondaga Camp does not operate for the 2021 summer season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a full refund, including the deposit and administration fee, will be returned to registered families.
We welcome you to contact us with any questions you may have. It is important that all of our families feel safe and confident in their decision to send their children to camp for Summer 2021.View recent COVID-19 updates from Onondaga Camp
