What does a day of Camp look like?
There are core activities most campers will participate in that include swimming, archery, arts & crafts, and canoeing. Counselors and cabin groups also have the opportunity to select other program options to fill out their daily schedules. These optional activities may include pontoon rides, kayaking, small group games, soccer, sand volleyball, and nature activities. For more explanation on different parts of the schedule check out the detailed schedule.
Can we request cabin buddies?
Participants may list up to three other campers they wish to have as cabin mates. All buddies must be registered for the same camp program session and dates in order for the request to be honored. Friends are a valuable aspect of summer camp, and every effort will be made to honor your requests.
What forms do I need to fill out and by when?
A Health Form and Camper Information Sheet must be received AT LEAST 14 DAYS PRIOR to the camp session, along with final payment to secure your registration. How do I know if Camp Omega has received my form? Simply check your form status online in the My Account. Please note that some camp sessions require additional permissions.
Is there any help to pay for camp?
Please don’t let finances prevent your child from experiencing a Camp Omega program. Contact your church for information on funds that may be available. Camp Omega also has a campership program available. Please read the Campership application requirements thoroughly and send all required attachments, including your registration form. Incomplete Campership applications will not be processed. Your registration, with approved Campership amounts, will be confirmed via email.
When do I send money to the canteen? How much should I send?
Every day, campers have the opportunity to purchase items such as candy, crackers, ice cream, and drink items at the Canteen. We recommend depositing $20-30 for a full week and $10-15 for weekend camps into their camp bank account. Any remaining funds can be refunded at the conclusion of the camp session or donated to the Camp’s mission project. Balance of payments, including canteen money, can be made online by visiting My Account or by USPS mail. Checks can be mailed to the camp office.

How do I make payments? When do I pay? Can I pay when I show up?
A minimum $75 deposit is required with all registrations. Balance of payments, including canteen money, can be made online by visiting My Account or by USPS mail. Upon processing your payment, you will be sent an email confirming the transactions and stating any balances due. You will not receive reminders or invoices regarding balances. In order to speed up the check-in process, our policy requires full payment of camp fees at least 14 days prior to the camp session. We encourage you to send canteen payments and make Bunk1 payments (optional) prior to the first day of camp to speed up the onsite registration process!
What about medications?
The camper’s Health Form must list all medications. At check-in, all medications (prescription, over-the-counter, vitamin, essential oils) must be turned into the Health Care Coordinator to be safely dispensed. Any concerns can be reviewed with the Health Care Coordinator on duty. All medications must be in their original packaging, bottle, or containers labeled with the camper’s name. Any concerns can be reviewed with the Health Care Coordinator on duty.
Camp for People with Developmental Disabilities – Please bring your medications packaged by med pass time with full prescription information (prescription name, dosage, etc.) Call the office for more information.
What is the cancellation policy?
All cancellations must be received in writing by mail or email. A refund, minus the non-refundable deposit, will be granted if the request is received 30 days prior to the first day of the camp session.
Is it alright to bring a fan to camp?
The cabins can get hot, so fans are encouraged. Since there is not a lot of extra room in the cabins, please limit the size of your fan. However, remember that there is no electricity in the Outpost Villages.
What about camp pictures?
Camp Omega partners with Bunk1 to bring you photos from camp and to keep you connected with your campers. Camp Omega’s partnership with Bunk1 makes it easy to communicate with your child and receive handwritten responses while viewing daily photos.

What do I do if my child has a special diet?
Dietary needs must be communicated to the camp prior to arrival, outlined on the camper’s Health Form, and discussed with the Health Care Coordinator at the time of arrival. Camp Omega is willing to accommodate needs as able. Dietary needs will be discussed with the camp’s Food Service Director.
Do I have to be Lutheran to come to Camp Omega?
No, absolutely not! Camp Omega is a Christ-centered organization affiliated with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. Camp Omega’s outreach is to welcome and minister to diverse denominations and many non-churched families. Our de-emphasis on issues peripheral to the Gospel has enabled us to deeply affect people from many faith traditions.
