Dates, Rates, & Info
We will be open this summer! And, it’s going to involve some changes to our schedule, capacity, and program.
Camp Onas will operate at 80% capacity this year, and run fewer sessions, which means:
- Campers may register for only one session.
- We will not offer one-week options for younger campers.
- Sessions 1-3 are available to campers age 8* to 13*.
- The Older Camper Session is available to 2019 and 2020 Camp Onas Graduates, ages 14* to 15*.
*Age eligibility is determined by a camper’s age on May 1 of this year.
As you consider your registration, please keep the following in mind:
- Sessions 1 – 3 will last 13 days, starting on a Sunday and ending on a FRIDAY.
- Families may be given designated times for Arrival and Departure on check in/ check out days. Please keep your schedule open the first and last day of your desired session until we confirm the time.
- We will be maintaining a closed camp this summer as much as possible … We will not accommodate late arrivals/ early departures or leaving during the session this year.
Sessions 1 – 3: $1,600 ($1,520 for Members of Quaker Meetings)
Older Camper Session: $875 ($830 for Members of Quaker Meetings)
Financial Aid is available for families who need help with tuition. The first step is to register. (You can request an application and reduced deposit in your registration)
We anticipate many families will require more financial aid than in the past. If you have the means, please consider making an especially generous donation to our Camper Aid Fund this year. We will need everyone’s help to keep the Onas experience accessible to many of our families this summer.
Priority Registration opened on 02/25/2021, it is available to families who were registered or on our waiting list in 2020.
Returning and Waitilisted 2020 families received an email from us on 2/19, and new families who’ve requested information received and email from us on 2/26.
Reducing and Mitigating COVID-19 at Camp Onas this Summer
Read our COVID-19 Reduction and Mitigation Plan.
It outlines our strategy to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission this summer, and includes measures like:
- Requiring pre-arrival symptom tracking and testing
- Pods (Cohorts) Used during camp – especially the first 5 days of the session.
- Face masks, physical distancing, and being outdoors. (And using 2/3 of these).
- Program alterations & changes to the daily schedule.
- Program changes that account for the mental, emotional, and social stress many are experiencing as a secondary symptom of the pandemic.
We look forward to sharing more details about this summer soon!
