What We Do

Go Beyond is a multi-year Leadership Through Nature program that helps fortify teens through extraordinary outdoor experiences and the summer-camp trip of a lifetime with an inclusive group of campers from across our Omaha community.

Together with experienced and supportive counselors, we provide world-class mountain adventures in Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Idaho to under-served, at-risk, and low-income young people and are open to anyone at no cost. (And we dream of being able to outfit our campers one day!) Relying on each other and communicating, finding self-discovery and courage, and knowing the freedom to be authentic with a new group of peers can change our campers lives forever.

Through our Centennial Ranch and Alpine Mountain Camp we bring our campers whitewater rafting, rock-climbing, horseback riding, backcountry camping, and hiking to mountain peaks. We volunteer with the Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps, partner with agencies to help save an endangered species, and learn conservation and sustainability principles.

Back home in Omaha, we build our relationships and community engagement through nature-based group excursions. Our campers can then build their job and leadership skills by becoming junior counselors, and for some we are able to provide a young person’s first paid employment as a full counselor and beyond.

Our vision is building and mentoring confident youth through nature and connection to others.
