Camp Omega is open for an outdoor educational experience for day-use and overnight Environmental Learning Programs (ELP). Omega has a long history of leading outdoor education programs for schools across Minnesota and would love to invite families to participate in the program.
ELP Mission Statement
The Environmental Learning Program is dedicated to providing schools and families with a self-contained, experiential, environmental education program that enables students to:
- Grow in their Christian faith

Instructors are welcome to lead their own lessons in addition to those led by camp staff or utilize the lessons already developed by the camp staff. They may also work with the program staff to develop a lesson. Guests are welcome to make use of Camp Omega facilities and equipment during the ELP event.
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.
The group 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.
