Outward Bound Omaha
Our mission: TO CHANGE LIVES THROUGH CHALLENGE AND DISCOVERY.
Outward Bound Omaha is a non-profit educational organization that serves people of all ages and backgrounds through active learning expeditions that inspire character development, self-discovery and service both in and out of the classroom. We seek to serve Omaha and the surrounding area and recently have been focused on underserved youth in middle and high school.
At the heart of the Midwest, Omaha lies in an oasis of outdoor activity. Within a few hours’ drive one could venture west to the sand hills and experience seemingly never ending rolling hills and meandering rivers. To the south one could trek on the many hiking trails at Indian Cave State Park and view the pictographs from early Native Americans. Grabbing a canoe paddle and heading north would lead you to Lewis and Clark’s journey down the Missouri River or skip into South Dakota and spend a few days rock climbing in one of many climbing areas. One can also experience the mighty eagles that soar overhead during a canoe trip down the nearby Elkhorn River, home to many campsites starting from Norfolk and leading into Omaha.
Outward Bound Omaha’s participants can choose from a half-day or full-day Insight course, or breakout their camping attire for an overnight experience to touch upon the beauty Nebraska has to offer both in and out of the city. The newly built Hitchcock High Ropes Challenge Course, allows clients to develop teamwork and problem solving skills while conquering personal fears. The Omaha center can accommodate both large and small groups and will work with clients to develop a program that specifically addresses a particular groups needs.
