OMP gives campers a glimpse into the lives of Arkansans who are in situations unfamiliar to most participating youth.
Senior High Camps
A seven-day camp (five work days) for youth who have completed 8th-12th grades.
The first day of camp is filled with orientation, group-building activities, and creating service teams known as Family Groups. Thereafter, campers serve in Family Groups of four youth and at least one adult, completing home repair and improvement jobs for neighbors in the communities surrounding the camp site for five days. Evenings are a time of spiritual growth through programming, worship and fellowship.
