Our campus is closed in 2020. But we're still here for you. Join Omega Conversations with favorite teachers, and our private  Facebook Group community.

The woods surrounding Omega are filled with enchanted groves where the “Little Forest People” live. The Little Forest People Rangers are looking for campers to help create woodland structures for the Little Forest People, drum, sing, spot painted turtles, climb fallen trees, and cook up a hearty batch of bread-on-a-stick and s’mores.

The Ranger Staff is a team with extensive experience running youth programs that nurture and challenge children in safe environments. The team includes musician and teacher Jay Cook, storyteller and naturalist Rich Humphreys, artist and educator Kesse Humphreys, wilderness educators John “Raccoon” Hunt and Lizzie “Raven” Bogosian, and energetic adventure seeker Eric “Epic” Baribeau.

Enrollment is limited for this program; register early.

Kids must be chaperoned. Chaperones may choose any workshop offered this week or an R&R Getaway Retreat.

Each day campers should wear hiking shoes or sneakers, bring a bathing suit and towel, and wear clothes that are best for playing in the woods.

This workshop is being held during Family Week. Be advised almost 200 children are on campus, and services and schedules are geared for children and families.

Kids Camps meet every morning from 9:00 a.m.–Noon, and every afternoon from 2:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m. In the evenings, everyone gathers for family entertainment.
