What People are Saying About Omega
"Omega and its surrounding area are serene and beautiful."
"The campus, and how well it is kept while not disturbing the natural environment, amazed me and enabled me to relax and connect with nature in a very special way."

Children & Teens
Your Omega experience is even greater when it's shared by the whole family. We encourage you to bring your children and teens along. We believe it's never too soon to kindle a passion for lifelong learning, inspired living, community, and sustainability.
To ensure age-appropriate learning for all, we require children ages 4–12 to be enrolled in our Children's Program or supervised by a babysitter.* We also offer a limited number of workshops for teens. With a place for everyone, each member of the family will have unique stories and experiences to share not only when you come together for meals and quality time outside of workshop hours, but long after you return home. Please note that the Children's Program will be available starting May 29, 2015.
For an Omega experience specifically designed for families, please see Family Week.
*See special criteria for children during Family Week.
