Blue Sky Fund is on a mission to provide transformational experiences for urban youth through outdoor education.
Blue Sky Fund exists to get inner-city kids out into the great outdoors. Blue Sky Fund mentors and educates at-risk youth through after-school and weekend programs, as well as through "camperships", a type of scholarship fund that allows many of our youth to attend summer camp. In 2009, we sent 86 kids to summer camp who would otherwise have not been able to afford such an experience. We also have explored the great outdoors with 3rd graders reaching for new heights on their science academic requirements. We have brought together diverse groups of 9th graders through a wilderness trip and opportunities for community service. We have hosted hundreds of neighborhood kids at our Church Hill Games, and much much more.
Our participants are primarily Richmond City Public School students living in under resourced neighborhoods and homes. Our city's youth deserve access to all the educational opportunities possible, and we are passionate about providing experiential learning throughout the year as well as the rich memories and lessons of summer camp. We serve these kids through strategic partnerships with schools, community organizations, churches, and tutoring groups. We would love the opportunity to help you get involved if you are interested.
