Across America, 1 out of 5 kids is alone and unsupervised from 3 to 6 p.m. Our after-school programs at the Omaha Kroc Center, Citadel Worship & Service Center and North Worship & Service Center keep youth engaged by providing a safe place to socialize and gain help with homework and reading. At the same time, parents can rest easy at work, knowing their children are safe and well cared for after school is dismissed.
Teens involved in our Blackhawks basketball team face off against teams around the Midwest, while at the Kroc Center, young people of all ages explore a wealth of activities to meet their individual passions. Dance, drawing, pottery, music and acting are just some of the classes available as well as soccer, basketball and flag football leagues. Over at the Citadel Worship & Service Center, youth of all ages participate in a variety of music programs. Many of the children and teens who participate in these programs would not otherwise have access to such opportunities, which ultimately help them grow to become empowered adults.
Day camps and overnight summer camps offer an appealing array of physical activities like swimming and archery that help kids stay active while exploring God's world, along with educational activities like art and music that keep their minds engaged. The Gene Eppley Camp, located south of Bellevue, offers a number of overnight camp opportunities, including music and sports camps, for kids and teens in first through 12th grades, as well as a starter day camp for young children. The Omaha Kroc Center offers several day camps during the summer and over spring and winter breaks. Camp Kroc immerses kids in activities like cooking, sign language and fitness classes, swimming and local field trips, and specialty day camps such as woodworking, speech and debate, mural painting, and lifeguarding.
We offer programming at our Omaha-area worship centers specifically geared toward kids to help them build character and gain the skills to flourish. Children and teens in pre-K through 12th grade develop strong communication and leadership skills, grow their minds, and explore God's Word, all while having fun and connecting with their peers in a safe, nurturing environment.
