Children & Teens FAQ

Your Omega experience can be shared by the whole family. We encourage you to bring your children and teens.

To ensure age-appropriate learning for all, we require children ages 4-12 to be enrolled in our Children's Program or supervised by a babysitter (see below). We also offer a limited number of workshops for children and teens. 

Teens 14 and older may enroll in a workshop with approval from Omega and faculty. Teens pay full tuition and adult accommodations fees and must attend Omega with an adult. Requests must be made through Registration at least four weeks before arrival.

 

Q: What is the Children’s Program?
A:
Omega’s creative and nurturing Children’s Program serves kids, ages 4-12. The Children’s Program is located in the fenced-in cottage near the Dining Hall. Please drop off children before workshop sessions begin. All children in the Children’s Program must be pre-registered (for an additional fee) through Registration in the Main Office and must be at least four years old and fully toilet-trained. Please make every effort to pick up all children promptly at the end of your workshop session.

Please note that the Children's Program will be available starting May 18, 2019, and weekends only after September 2, 2019. A minimum 7 days advance registration is required.

Q: Does Omega provide babysitting services?
A:
Limited babysitting services may be available through Guest Services for a fee. Please check with Guest Services at the beginning of your stay for more information.

Q: Are children allowed in my workshop?
A:
Infants and children ages 1-12 are not allowed in workshops (see Family Week for special circumstances), and must be accompanied by an adult at all times when they are not in the Children’s Program. Teens 14 and older may enroll in a workshop with approval from Omega and faculty. (Requests must be made through Registration at least four weeks before arrival.) While children are welcome to attend evening performances, please be mindful of their impact on others, depending on the mood and tone of the event. We recommend that children not be brought to the Sanctuary unless they are able to maintain silence.

Q: What about accommodations for Children and Teens?
A:
For Children & Teens Accommodations, please see Sleep. For an Omega experience specifically designed for families, please see Family Week.
