Omega Family Week delivers something rare—time for families to be together in an engaging way with enough variety to satisfy each member. The week offers a unique balance of time together and time apart so that everyone can have fun, learn, explore, and make new friends as the campus transforms into a wellspring of inspiring activity.
Each night at Family Week offers exciting opportunities and evening events that may include opening and closing ceremonies, community gatherings, performances, drumming and dancing, and more!
Parents, please accompany your children to all Evening Events.
Here is a glimpse of the evening events line-up:
What's Happening During Family Week....
Omega Welcome With Howard Moody

Family Week officially begins with a community gathering to celebrate and introduce the program.
Movie Screening: Mr. Peabody & Sherman
Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man—or dog. But they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present, and future, Mr. Peabody must come to the rescue. Mr. Peabody & Sherman is fun for kids ages 6 and up.
