Go Beyond's Mission, Vision and Values
Mission: Go Beyond’s provides year-round outdoor experiences, featuring life-changing Mountain West adventures.
Vision: Go Beyond’s extraordinary outdoor adventures bring diverse groups of young people together to facilitate self-discovery and build community.
Values: Courage, Compassion, Development, Inclusion
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the outdoors.
Go Beyond Nebraska, formerly known as Camp Confidence, provides world-class summer camp expeditions to young people from across the Omaha community! Since our beginning we’ve expanded who we serve and are excited to continue our mission and grow in the years to come.
Go Beyond Nebraska is a nonprofit, full scholarship program, with zero cost to participants or their families. We also provide assistance with necessary outdoor gear, supplies, and transportation in order to ensure our program is accessible to any youth.
Who We Serve
Our participants are nominated by school counselors, recruiters, and community partner organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Partnership 4 Kids, Completely Kids, One World, DREAM, Inclusive Communities and many others. Nominees are then provided applications to complete. Any interested youth are eligible to apply!

Why Go Beyond is important...
Where We're Located
Go Beyond is based in Omaha, NE with two properties in Wyoming that we use for our summer programming and partnership rentals. Our Centennial Ranch is located at the base of the Snowy Range in south central Wyoming and our Alpine Mountain Camp near the Grand Tetons.
From our cabins we travel to Colorado and raft the Cache la Poudre River, visit Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and even explore the Minnetonka Caves in Idaho! Local activities for continuing the impacts of our expeditions include camping, canoeing, ropes courses, environmental courses, and more.
