Charity Walker-Rodenbarger Youth and Education Coordinator

“Working at the Kroc Center is like being with family—a little bit of crazy, a little bit of loud and a whole lot of love and support!”

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. Now, Charity focuses her time at the Kroc Center planning and implementing educational programming for Camp Kroc and our after-school program Club Kroc.

In the spirit of the Kroc Center’s mission

“…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.

 

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.

Lori Miles

Youth Ministries
Specialist

"We all have a craving to be seen."

We like to be noticed, to hear our names called out, to be celebrated for wins and held close after losses. We all want to feel that sigh of satisfaction that says, "Yes, I matter." This craving comes from God. From the moment we were created, we were seen by our Creator (Psalm 139) and He sees every step we take (Proverbs 5:21). Everybody matters in His eyes! As the Youth Ministries Specialist, my desire is that every young person who enters the Kroc has the chance to experience this love and acceptance.

I am excited to be a part of Camp Kroc this year! I will be teaching a "Kid Connect" interactive time in which campers will be taught a faith-inspired lesson and be challenged to apply this truth to their daily lives.

During Week 6, we will "Take a Closer Look" at God's Love through the FOCUS VBS program in the morning. If your child wants to attend VBS, but not Day Camp, you may register them separately by contacting me at: Lori.Miles@usc.salvationarmy.org or 402.905.3522. The morning programming is no cost for those not enrolled in day camp.

My door is open for any youth or parent that may need a listening ear or spiritual guidance.

We also offer Specialty Camps. The ages of these groups are ability dependent. Professional educators work with your children on developing and honing in on these special skills.
