Onaway Adventure Camp
Onaway Adventure Camp (OAC) is a co-ed, week-long wilderness camping experience for 5th through 11th graders. All adventure campers will experience canoeing, kayaking, trail hiking, and biking, while older campers have opportunities for rock climbing, backpacking, single track biking, and whitewater kayaking. Lead by experienced leaders, OAC allows youth to try new hobbies shared by experienced leaders with gear provided and maintained by the Boys’ & Girls’ Brigade. Campers experience not only Camp Onaway traditions and activities but also the wilderness offered by Hartman Creek State Park. OAC encourages kids in the Four-Fold way of life by helping them to try new things, work together, achieve beyond their expectations and make new connections.
New this year, 10th and 11th grade campers will have the opportunity for a five day wilderness backpacking trip on the North Shore of Lake Superior on the Superior Hiking Trail. The Leader-In-Training (LIT) program will continue to allow older campers to practice their leadership skills while assisting the younger campers at Hartman Creek State Park.
