A co-educational summer camp for children, ages 8 - 13, Camp Onas is rurally located on seventy acres of deep woods and rolling fields in Ottsville, Pennsylvania. The camp is operated under the supervision of the Friends Camp Association, Inc. of Pennsylvania.
Camp Onas is designed to let kids be kids. The rich and varied program stresses sharing, co-operaion, understanding, simple living and most essential of all - fun. Soar on a rope swing, sing around a camp fire, ride a zip line across a pond, live and play with new friends, giggle, laugh and just be a kid. That's what Camp Onas is all about. At Camp Onas, kids choose what they want to do. Activities include: canoeing, dramatics, nature study, sports, swimming, hiking, archery, arts and crafts, games, day trips, special event days, theme weekends, carnival, skit night, evening activities, adventure and challenge activities, a four day pioneering program of hiking and canoeing for selected campers.
Boys and girls, with their counselors, live under the stars within the shelter of platform tents and pavilions. Each group has its own area with modern shower house and flush toilets. The Camp's meeting for Worship on Sunday monrings is held in keeping with the Friends' practice of silent worship.
