Status as of 07/19/21 – As a way to once again have the Owatonna teams engage in healthy competition, we are having a fundraising competition between the Blues, Golds, Greens and Reds. There will be awards for both most money raised and the highest level of participation. Your gift can be applied to the fund of your choice – Campership, Capital, Endowment or Unrestricted and you can designate your gift to one of the teams. We are excited to see the same brotherhood and fun competition in this fundraising competition that we experienced when we were at Camp! Use this link to donate.

Share your Owatonna/Ropioa stories – to celebrate the upcoming centennial of the founding of Camp Owatonna/Ropioa, we are compiling an official written history. We need your help! Click the link above to read more.
