Home Association



The Ogden Dunes Home Association (ODHA) is an all-volunteer organization that relies upon the generous support of members in offering the residents of Ogden Dunes a safe and attractive neighborhood, and upkeep and improvements of ODHA properties. Some of the benefits that the ODHA offers to Ogden Dunes residents include:

  • Maintenance of Kratz Field and Nelson Reck Park
  • Upkeep and preservation of beach access ways
  • Provide summer greeter at entrance
  • Summer recreation programs
  • Ogden Dunes youth soccer and Kiddie Kickers
  • Family night on the beach
  • Cardboard regatta
  • Chili cook-off


Ogden Dunes Home Association meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 PM at Town Hall. Please check the Public Event Calender for official meeting dates and locations.


Elections for the open positions will be held at the ODHA annual meeting in March. The Board serves 3 year terms. The Board will vote to elect the officers, president, VP, etc. on an annual basis. The past president automatically holds a Board of Directors position.
