Camp Oneka

About the organization

Camp Oneka is an ACA (American Camp Association) accredited camp for girls located on the shores of beautiful Fairview Lake in the Pocono Mountain region of northeastern Pennsylvania. We provide a rich traditional program which includes a wide variety of activities from field sports (hockey, softball, soccer) to drama, arts and crafts (painting, ceramics, jewelry), tennis, archery, and tower climbing, to name a few. Our aquatic program is particularly outstanding thanks to our location on Fairview Lake, and includes canoeing, sailing, waterskiing, lifeguard training, a towable, water trampolining, and more. Oneka succeeds in creating a warm family atmosphere where each camper's well-being is everyone's concern.
