Outdoor Leadership Institute Application 2021-22
Please complete this before you set up your application interview.

While the future of the pandemic is still uncertain, we are moving forward with our summer programming plans. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 protocols, restrictions, and best practices to guide our planning for a safe summer of outdoor programming. That said, Blue Sky Fund is currently accepting applications for the Outdoor Leadership Institute (OLI) starting the Summer of 2021. BSF will lead crews of 10-12 rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students from diverse backgrounds to come together to build teamwork, confidence, leadership, and community involvement. The summer institute centers on a 5-day backpacking trip, during which crew members learn how to strengthen their leadership and teamwork skills by confronting the challenges of the wilderness. The program design includes experiences that will help shape knowledgeable, multicultural leaders who engage with the social needs of Richmond through service learning one Saturday a month for the following school year.

The dates of the 2021 program are:

Girls' Trip - July 6th - July 17th (Wilderness: July 10th - 14th)
Boys' Trip - July 27th - August 7th (Wilderness: July 31st - August 4th)

Everyone: One Service Saturday each month from September to May

Please fill out this application form to become eligible for a spot in this year's Outdoor Leadership Institute!
