Description

We provide transformational experiences for urban youth through outdoor education. Blue Sky exists to educate and mentor at-risk youth by getting inner-city kids out of their urban environment, and into the great outdoors through two primary methods of programming: experiential science education and outdoor adventure. In partnership with the Richmond City Public school system, Blue Sky has reached new heights within the 3rd and 5th grade science academic requirements through educational field trips, as well as educational after-school, weekend and summer programs for middle school students. In addition to outdoor education, we also provide "camperships", a type of scholarship fund that allows many of our youth to attend summer camp, an experience that they would otherwise not have been able to afford. While we send many kids to camp through these camperships, we offer our own summer program as well, which brings together diverse groups of high school students through a wilderness trip
