Camp Omega Responsibilities
Camp Omega will produce a comprehensive program that includes lessons, instruction, activities, recreation, and campfires. We will also provide staff to plan and lead the Core Activities, Discovery Units, and to help facilitate the schedule. Most importantly, we will strive to provide students the opportunity to develop a deeper mental and spiritual understanding of God’s great creation.
Family or School Responsibilities
The family or school will provide transportation for all off-site learning events. Adult leaders will provide supervision for non-programmed events which include Canteen, reflection time, and other unstructured times (including after campfire until breakfast). It is expected that all adult leaders and teachers are fully engaged in both programmed and non-programmed events to enhance the experience of the students. By taking an active role in discipline and supervision, adult leaders will help ensure students remain in a positive and safe learning environment at all times.
