Also known as “adventuring,” Blue Sky’s Outdoor Adventure Clubs (OAC) engage participants in learning and practicing outdoor adventure skills such as rock climbing, orienteering (map and compass), firemaking, and kayaking. Each club session is designed around a specific theme or skill, and lessons and activities are tailored to meet the interests and abilities of the students in a way that encourages them to explore, learn, and grow.
A series of clubs sessions will usually culminate in an Expedition, a day-long or weekend trip into the great outdoors that challenges the youth to use their new found skills in the field. We offer this program during the regular school day and during after school hours, and work with multiple partners including CHAT (Church Hill Activities and Tutoring), Franklin Military Academy, Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, and Anna Julia Cooper Episcopal School.
