Members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin counties try on gloves and other winter sports gear provided by Skyline Adventures.
WHAT WE DO
Skyline Adventures is a local nonprofit 501(c)(3) outreach program staffed by volunteers and based in Dayton, Wash. Our goal is to bring winter skiing and snowboarding at Bluewood to young people who lack opportunity, are less fortunate or have special needs.
Over the past two years, Skyline Adventures has provided winter sports scholarships to 233 young people. As part of the package, they received lift tickets, lessons, rental equipment and lunches at Bluewood.
Skyline Adventures also provided warm clothes to those who needed them.
And we’ve hosted 860 Special Olympics athletes free of charge.
Skyline Adventures partners with many local and regional organizations, including American Heritage Girls, Boy Scouts of America, Cornerstone Community Church, Girl Scouts, Ignite Youth Mentoring, Lost & Found Youth Outreach, SOS Outreach, Special Olympics, Trilogy and YMCA’s Community Center for Youth.
WHY WE DO IT
Along with being fun, these outdoor sports teach courage, discipline, wisdom and humility—skills that will serve the young people and our regional area well for many years to come.
The mission is to transform lives through outdoor sports.
To help accomplish this, Skyline Adventures mentors:
- Coach youth to improve sports abilities.
- Show the kids that they’re valued.
- Teach social skills.
