Recreation

In ​the center of the Boys Town campus, the beautiful 138,000-square-foot Palrang Memorial Field House features a newly renovated indoor track and basketball facility, a weight room, a rock climbing wall, an Olympic-size swimming pool and a full gymnasium. This is also where Boys Town’s boys’ and girls’ indoor sports teams (basketball, volleyball, wrestling) play their home games and host meets against other schools from across the state.

Boys Town youth enjoy hundreds of experiences that are part of just being a kid. From summertime fishing in the lake to riding a bike across campus to sledding in the winter to cheering on the Boys Town Cowboy sports teams, boys and girls have fun and develop lifelong friendships. That’s because we believe children need a healthy balance of learning and fun activities in order to grow and thrive.

Opportunities for fun and learning also extend beyond the Village. Boys Town is surrounded by the city of Omaha, where Boys Town families routinely go on outings to shop and attend movies and sports events. Many of our youth work part-time jobs at Omaha area businesses and participate in community service projects.

Youth participate in recreational sporting events and community activities at the Palrang Field House on Boys Town Campus.

Boys Town offers a wide variety of programs that provide youth and their families with the right care at the right time.

While at Boys Town, youth with peer relation issues or concerns decreased from 55% at admission to only 4% at ​departure.
