More about this overnight ….

The “Try Out Onas” Overnight is for existing, new, and thinking-about-it campers who want to try (or come back to) Onas for a night. The cost for this overnight experience is $40, and financial aid is available.

Returning campers are welcome, especially if they want to help show off Camp Onas to new campers. The event will be geared toward campers who want to see what Onas is like, and/or want to try Onas out for a night before committing to a session.  It should be a great opportunity for new campers to practice being away from home for a night, too.

Registering for the Try Out Onas Overnight involves telling us some basic information and completing a health form and participation agreement. After you register, we will be in touch via email, sending reminders about what to bring, when to arrive, and any snow date information.

The cancellation fee for the Try Out Onas Overnight is the $15 deposit.  We will refund the balance of your payment up to 1 week before the overnight date.  Cancellations within 1 week (7 days) will forfeit the full deposit amount.  If the event is cancelled by Camp Onas, or moved to the snow date (and you can’t make the Snow Date), 100% of the fee will be refunded.
