Omega’s Story

The Camp Omega Story

Welcome to Camp Omega on the Lake!

In short – Camp Omega is all about RELATIONSHIP … about INTENTIONAL time in a QUITE PLACE … a place for children, teens, adults, families, congregations, and communities to grow in relationship with Christ…a place for campers young and old to DISCOVER & REDISCOVER what life in Jesus is all about.

Camp Omega is COMMITTED to being a place where ministry and intentional relationships meet and GROW.  Camp is a place where individuals and groups can get away to a quiet place and REST awhile, just as Jesus encouraged His disciples in Mark 6:31,  “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

Camp Omega PROMISES to leave indelible, life-changing spiritual mark on the hearts of God’s people, as campers of ALL AGES encounter creation…create community…and COMMUNE with CHRIST in this special place.

Established in 1964 and located just north of Waterville, Minnesota, Camp Omega has been serving for nearly 60 years as a Christian retreat facility and summer camp. OPEN YEAR ROUND, Camp Omega serves a wide variety of Christian and secular groups and is the perfect setting for summer camp, family reunions, retreats, conferences and other gatherings.
