Camp Onaway

Adventure Camp

Hey there, future campers! Onaway Adventure Camp (OAC) is a co-ed camping experience for 5th-11th graders. It’s your ticket to discover the magic of Onaway Island!

What’s in store? Campers spend the first half of the week exploring outdoors and tent camping at Hartman Creek State Park and the second half experiencing the traditions of Camp Onaway.

Loads of fun things happen during a week at camp like swimming, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, and land activities like trail hiking and biking! Our older campers even have opportunities to rock climb, go backpacking, and whitewater kayaking. Led by experienced leaders, OAC allows youth to try new hobbies with gear provided by the Boys & Girls Brigade.

So, if you’re ready to make new friends, try awesome activities, and explore the enchantment of Onaway Island, Adventure Camp is where the adventure begins!

Cost: $495 / week


Onaway Adventure Camp

August 10-17, 2024

Onaway Adventure Camp has many scheduled activities at Hartman Creek State Park, Onaway Island, and the surrounding areas. Each day, youth will go on an day trip consisting of hiking the many miles of Hartman Creek trails, biking around the Waupaca area, kayaking the Crystal River, or other exciting outdoor activities. As the camper grows in age, so does the challenge level of the activities, culminating in a 3 to 4 day overnight trip where all of their learned skills will be put to the test.

When youth return from their day trips, the park opens up to them for free time. They are free to hike, bike the single track course, fish, swim, explore and more! The campsite will be full of activities like card and board games, frisbee, team sports, or just relaxing after a day of exploring. There is always something for everyone!

Once returned to Onaway Island, skiing, tubing, and rock climbing add to the list of activities available for free time. The youth divide into teams and conquer a cross country race with running, swimming, paddling, rowing, and wading legs across the Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes. Needless to say, the week is nonstop fun!

“Every year I look forward to Onaway”
