Activities

Choose Just What You Want to Do

For a rich and varied experience, teens choose daily from more than 50 Omega Teen Summer Camp activities. Each afternoon, teens sign up for the next day’s activities. Two of these are weeklong intensives designed for teens to dive a little deeper. The other two activity periods change each day.

While Omega Teen Camp offers many traditional summer camp activities like swimming, canoeing, basketball, and the high ropes course, teens also have the opportunity to explore powerful activities that are unique to our camp. Omega Teen Camp activities are designed to provide safety and encouragement for teens to build self-confidence and enhance creativity. Every day skilled professional dancers, artists, and musicians help teens learn and explore new things. Some of our most popular activities include Ultimate Frisbee, yoga, henna tattooing, Thai massage, hip hop dance, lacrosse, guitar, and discussion groups.

Most of our activities are open to all ages with a few programs geared specifically toward older or younger teens.
