Why Oneka

Most of what Camp Oneka for Girls offers can be found in any camp. Why, then, are we unique?

Camp OnekaWe could refer to our more than 110 years of history and tradition. Thousands of girls have enjoyed camping at Oneka over the years, and it still retains its "woodsy" atmosphere. It's protected and preserved buildings and grounds are a legacy to the way camping used to be. At the same time, modern conveniences have been added so as not to disrupt the traditional camp charm. Oneka is truly a unique historical facility among the glitter of modern camping. Located on the shores of natural, crystal clear Fairview Lake, few camps are fortunate enough to have a waterfront as beautiful and functional as Camp Oneka. There is no better way to spend the summer than swimming, sailing, canoeing, and waterskiing on beautiful Fairview Lake on a hot summer day!

We are committed to maintaining our small size of approximately 125 campers and a 1 to 3 staff-to-camper ratio. This provides a nurturing, caring camp experience especially for young and first time campers.

We are also committed to the girls camp concept as a means of allowing girls to enjoy new experiences in a supportive, non-threatening, non-judgmental environment. At Oneka, girls can shed the stereotypes and distractions that may limit their growth in reaching their full potential by participating in new activities and experiencing leadership opportunities.
