The Our Kids review of Onondaga Camp

our take

Onondaga is one of the oldest camps in the country, having recently celebrated its centenary. 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.

Campfires and Variety Night

Campers have the opportunity to sign up for campfires and variety nights, giving everyone a chance to display a special talent or put on a preformance.


All Camp Game

At Onondaga we pride ourselves on going all out for our special afternoons and all camp games. Our creative staff have never ending ideas on how to create new games that the entire camp can enjoy.


The Blob

Onondaga Camp has three huge water trampolines, each with many accessories including "The Blob." This activity is always popular during activity periods and is a great place to spend free time as well.


Waterskiing

Onondaga Camp has three waterski and wakeboard sites. At this activity, beginners at the sport can learn basic waterskiing and wakeboarding skills, while those who are experienced can practice and improve known skills. Onondaga also offers a specialty waterski/wakeboard camp during our one week session at the end of August.
