Camp Onaway is a 6 ½ acre island located on The Chain O' Lakes near Waupaca, Wisconsin.
Since 1908, The Boys’ & Girls’ Brigade has been camping at Onaway Island looking at the experience as an extension of the drill, leadership and character building programs. Camping provides another opportunity for youth to learn these skills from adult leaders. The objectives remain similar to those of almost 100 years ago, but over those years, the program at Onaway has changed and evolved.

Onaway is used throughout the year for weekend camping expeditions during the spring, fall, and winter. The camping season extends to year-round because of a versatile headquarters building that sleeps 32 people comfortably. The multi-purpose building is also a year-round facility extending the season.
