The community that the students, counselors and supporters of Go Beyond have built at camp and at home, is founded on believing in respect, courage, humanity, inclusiveness, trust, diversity, and honoring each other. 

We are outraged by the tragic death of George Floyd and deeply saddened by the instances of racism that have permeated our society. As our country and our city struggles to deal with these events, it is important to state that Go Beyond stands resolutely against racism and violence.

We look forward to continuing to serve our community in alignment with our mission which is to enable youth in the Omaha area to develop confidence, build respect, and discover, their full potential. We stand on the foundation of our 40 year legacy and are excited about our future and the impact we will have on even more students in our community.

who we are

Go Beyond is a 501(c)3 non profit that has been serving Omaha Area Youth since 1978. For more than 40 years we have focused on the importance of nature in the personal development of young men and women.  

“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience new things and build connections with my peers, nature, and myself.”

what we do

Our programming takes 13-16 yr old youths away from the city and technology, out of their comfort zone, and challenges them to try new things. Through outdoor adventure activities such as rock climbing, white water rafting, horseback riding, backpacking, hiking, and camping, participants develop more confidence and a stronger sense of self.

“Thank you so much for the opportunity to do some of my favorite things that I can’t do in Omaha. I love rock climbing- it’s a special skill I have and I love showing it off. Thank you for making that possible!
