In today's fast-paced world of rising travel costs, affordable, quality family vacations are harder to find. Your family can enjoy our Family Camp, less than 30 minutes from Lincoln or Omaha. The fees include lodging, meals, activities, and all the fun you can handle!


Camp Kitaki staff open up the areas and you go at your own pace with your family.  Want to spend the whole day by the pool?  We won't stop you.  Or jump on a horse, climb the tower, hike the woods and more!  All meals are included so you don't have to worry about cooking or cleaning up.  Special activities include campfire, capture the flag, scavenger hunts, gaga and more!

Activities Available during Family Camps

  • Horse Rides Enjoy a trail ride led by Camp Kitaki Wranglers. Children under age 7 can participate in the "'little buckaroos club" in place of trail rides.
  • Climbing Tower Challenge yourself to a fifty-foot climb while our trained ropes staff keep you on belay.
  • Lake Activities Take a paddleboat, paddle board, kayak or canoe for a spin around the lake. Bring your fishing gear out and try for the big one! (Fishing licensees required per Nebraska State Law)
