Build Confidence & Friendships
The Word Tour Camps allow participants to journey around the world without leaving Omaha and exposes them to the culture, food, music, games, sports, history, and politics of a foreign country and several academic enrichment activities. This inaugural edition will take kids on an expedition to Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. Children live through a fun filled memorable 5-day journey in Omaha. Each day is spent immersed in a foreign country’s culture, food, music, games, sports, history, politics, and current challenges.
This all-day program provides exciting and fun-filled days at camp. Campers return home at the end of each day tired, yet eager for the next morning when they get to come back for more enjoyable experiences. From exploratory free time to planned programming, our counselors are always there to ensure a fun and safe experience for all. Campers develop global competencies and STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) skills, while striving to improve their health and wellness and academic excellence.
