Recently retired from a 30-year teaching career, Charity joined the Kroc Center’s Education team as the Youth and Education Coordinator. For the last 15 years of her career, Charity spent her time teaching technology skills to K-6th graders.

Isaac Cruz-Vital Camp Counselor

“The favorite part of my job is being able
to interact with kids daily while building positive and long lasting relationships

with them.”

The Kroc Center wouldn’t feel like home without Isaac Cruz-Vital, our Education Assistant. When he is not playing dodge ball or encouraging young men to be better, Isaac works as a Finance and Real Estate Intern at Union Pacific. He currently attends the University of Nebraska at Omaha through the Susan Buffet scholarship.

Activities

“…To inspire people to develop their God given talents through artistic, educational, physical and spiritual experiences…” we provide campers a way to grow in mind, body and spirit.

Our camp program is rated 5 (on a scale of 1-5; with 5 being highest) in excellence for our combination of education and activities in comparison to 15 other Greater Omaha summer camps. Camp Kroc truly is a great place for curious and active kids. Campers love being with their friends and having a blast; parents love that their kids are safe and still learning during summer-time fun.

Our camp program focuses on 3 developmental components: Stay Sharp School Skills, Experiential Learning, and Physical Health and Safety. On average, you can expect your camper’s weeks to include the following focus areas:

Stay Sharp School Skills

• STEM challenges and programs

• Reading and mathematical maintenance

• Situational problem solving

• Computer skills

Experiential Learning

• Field trips and hands-on learning

• Values and positive socialization

• Diversity, inclusion and collaboration

Physical Health and Safety

• Red Cross Certified swim lessons

• Fitness as active play

Quiet Mind activities

 

This summer we offer one week of V.B.S. (Vacation Bible School) programming: Week 6 which runs from 9 am – Noon. If your child is already scheduled for camp that week, it is a prorated cost. (Price to be determined for the afternoon) Children who want to only attend V.B.S. can do so for FREE, but please make sure your child is registered. See to the right for this year’s V.B.S. theme: Focus.

 

V.B.S. Combo Week

June 29 - July 3

Camp Kroc campers will enjoy camp “Mad Science” activities plus bonus Vacation Bible School "Focus" activities each day from 9 - Noon.

You can sign up for 1 week or the WHOLE SUMMER! Each week is a fun theme and you can plan on your children bringing home crafts, projects and games that reflect the weekly theme. We know summer is a busy time for families with vacations, camping and sports. We can work around your schedule with pre-planning to ensure your child is able to be picked up at a certain time.
