Though this summer wasn't one any of us would have planned, Camp BlueSky still had the privilege of serving our camper community in a creative way!
Our Camp team worked tirelessly to provide a virtual camp experience for the camp community in Nairobi and abroad. For the four "sessions" of camp, the team built out one full camp-day's worth of online content that campers could enjoy at their own pace throughout each week. Content included silly camp songs, crafts, games, competitions, devotionals, worship, and some favorite camp traditions.
campers registered throughout the four weeks of camp, ranging in ages from 5-18 (and we imagine some younger siblings joined the fun!)
Alumni and current staff contributed to Online Camp content.
registered kids were first-time campers who we hope to continue engaging and see return for future camp seasons!
different schools were represented, and because of the virtual nature of camp, we had campers register from 16 additional countries beyond Kenya!
We are so thankful to report that our virtual camp allowed us to stay engaged with our camp community and make new connections! We're excited for what this means for Camp this coming year.
This year we were fortunate to be able to care for our staff
We were able to complete a refresh project for our gym during the time we were closed.
After weeks of cleaning, painting, rerouting climbs, and implementing new COVID-19 protocols, we were able to re-open our gym in October to our climbing community.
