Go Beyond enables youth in the Omaha area to develop confidence, build respect, and discover their full potential.
Go Beyond Nebraska is a 501(c)3 non profit that has been serving our community since 1978. For more than 40 years we have focused on the importance of nature in the personal development of young men and women.
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the outdoors.
Go Beyond, formerly known as Camp Confidence, is the only Outdoor Leadership Program of its kind! 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 is a 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, Girls Inc., One World, CASA, Inclusive Communities and many others. Nominees are then provided applications to complete. Any interested youth are eligible to apply!
In 2019 we served over 70 students from 40 different schools in Omaha, Council Bluffs, and York, Nebraska.
