Annual OMA Retreat:
Camp Blue Diamond - Nov. 12-16, 2017

The annual retreat for Church of the Brethren camp staff, volunteers, board members and interested friends will be held Nov. 12 - 16 at Camp Blue Diamond near Petersburg, PA. The event is filled with workshops and roundtables designed to empower and aid camps staff and volunteers with their ministry. There will be rest and recreation time built into the retreat, as well as opportunities for informal sharing and fellowship too. Pictured below are some of the camp folks who attended the 2016 annual OMA retreat at Camp Ithiel in central Florida.

Cost for the event is about $200/person. College and seminary students as well as BVS (Brethren Volunteer Service) volunteers pay half the fee. Scholarships that cover the fee for smaller camps with limited budgets and financial need are available, as well as half scholarships for larger camps. To find out more about scholarships check out the OMA-Z Retreat Scholarship pdf. Request for scholarship aid must be made one month prior to the event to the OMA Treasurer Rex Miller. Scholarship recipients need to be camp staff.
