Money

Cash, American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and personal or traveler's checks may be used for purchases at the Omega Store and Omega Wellness Center

The Omega Café accepts cash only and Guest Services accepts cash only for postal, copying, and fax services. 

There is an ATM located in the Omega Café lobby for your convenience. Omega cannot cash personal checks or give a cash advance on your credit card. 

Limited Mobility & Accessibility

Omega's campus is lovely, but it’s also large and hilly. Please contact our Service Coordinator at 877.944.2002, ext 181 before registering so we may better accommodate you.

Wheelchair accessible accommodations are available. We also provide golf cart rides and other assistance. Also, please see the Dietary FAQ.

Children & Teens

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.


Babysitting 

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.


Children

Children and infants 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. 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. 

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.

Children’s Program

Omega’s creative and nurturing Children’s Program serves kids, ages 4-12. It may include (weather permitting) outdoor adventures, sports, swimming, nature study, arts and crafts, and games.

All children in the Children’s Program must be pre-registered at least 7 days in advance through Registration in the Main Office and must be at least four years old and fully toilet-trained. The 2018 season Children’s Program begins May 18, 2018, through Labor day after which it will be available weekends only.

The Children’s Program is located in the fenced-in cottage near the Dining Hall. Please drop off children before normal workshop hour sessions (9:00 a.m.–Noon; 2:30 p.m.–5:00 p.m. most days) begin, and make every effort to pick up all children promptly at the end of your workshop session.

The Children's Program price per child is $40 per day and does not include accommodations. For Children & Teens Accommodations, please see All-Inclusive Stay. For an Omega experience specifically designed for families, please see Family Week.
