Our Mission: To offer camps to adults with developmental disabilities, enhancing their lives through recreation, socialization and life skills education.


3 Campers share how camp changed their lives  THE FIRST-TIMER Breanna Keeley, 24, of Charlotte Attended: North Carolina, 2017 Favorite activity: “Arts and crafts, especially drawing and painting.” Thoughts on camp: “It was so much more than I expected. I realized it was Ok to travel and be on my own.” Post-camp: “I became more independent. When I got home, my parents noticed I was more helpful and more responsible.” Advice for first-timers: “Be prepared to have fun!”

 THE ENTHUSIAST Jeremy Foster, 27, of Cleveland Attended: Ohio, 2015; NC, ’16 & ’17 (Hasn’t been to Georgia... yet!) Favorite activity: “Seeing my friends and meeting new people. It’s always lots of fun.” Thoughts on camp: “The zipline was one

of my challenges. I had a fear of heights. I just let it go and gave it a try. Now, I love it!” Post-camp: “I now try to be an example to others by having fun and being kind.” Advice for first-timers: “If you’re open, you’re going to have a great experience.”


Favorite activity: “I get to see my camp buddies, doing the activities, and eating good food.” Thoughts on camp: “I get to make friends all the time. (Having connections is very important to Jason.) I try things that maybe I might not do with friends or housemates.” Advice for first-timers: “Come to camp, you will have fun. Everybody is nice and we do lots of things.”

A note from Dick Sesler, founder

The first step: Hiring Kit Sluder as Director of Health Services and Camper Recruitment. Her years of experience as a registered nurse and with camps gave us a solid foundation. Kit found doctors to be on-call and built a solid team of nurses through her networks. Nurses volunteered at first, but now those who work the full session receive a stipend

With oversight from faculty, student pharmacists review medications at check-in on Opening Day and then organize meds into daily dose packs. Imagine sorting meds for 40 to 60 campers!

Taking care to provide quality care for campers In my very first meeting with the parents of a potential camper, they asked how we were staffed to handle medical needs and medicines. Surprisingly, I hadn't thought about that critical piece and immediately looked for an answer.

Jason Flowe, 45, of Charlotte Attended: NC, 2010-17

Among those who contribute to quality care at camp (from left): April Bradley, Dr. Tom Gavigan, Aubrey Tamrakar, Becca Taunton, and Debby Rea. thanks to a grant from Healthy Charlotte Alliance. In Georgia, nursing students from West Georgia Technical College began volunteering with us. Pharmacists and pharmacy school students handle dispensing medications.

In Georgia, we work with the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy and Mercer University College of Pharmacy. Our partners in North Carolina are the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy in Asheville and Wingate University School of Pharmacy at Hendersonville. We welcomed Dr. Tom Gavigan of Charlotte to the Board of Directors in 2017. He and Kit have been reviewing our processes and protocols to ensure we maintain the highest possible standard of care during camp.

Emily Finn scouts for volunteers in Georgia

What’s new for 2018: “Second Chance” brackets

Emily Finn joined our team last summer as our Georgia-based Volunteer Coordinator.

Hoops For Camp returns March 11 with the new Sweet 16 Second Chance brackets.

Emily’s goal is to help people connect their talents to a passion for volunteering and to make sure volunteers have a positive, rewarding experience at Camp Blue Skies-Georgia and Camp Blue Skies-Williams Syndrome.

“If you don’t make great picks, you understandably lose your enthusiasm for your brackets early on,” says Dick Sesler. “The Sweet 16 Second Chance will give everyone another shot at prizes and bragging rights.”

Emily is recruiting local day volunteers, cabin counselors and HEPs (people who Have Experience with our camper Population) and is helping with camp logistics. She’s been hard at work visiting businesses, colleges, church groups and volunteer fairs. She also helped promote our Spin For Kids team. Since 2010, Emily has volunteered with a variety of partner groups at Camp Twin Lakes, and she has worked professionally with people with developmental disabilities. Her passion for camp and volunteering is contagious, which makes her a perfect fit for Camp Blue Skies!  Contact her at; (404) 654-3625.

Volunteer Spotlight: Scott Fletcher Scott Fletcher is so devoted to volunteering with Camp Blue Skies that he scheduled his knee replacement surgery after the North Carolina sessions and, if all goes well, his knee will be good to go for Camp Blue Skies-Williams Syndrome. Scott learned about Camp Blue Skies through his work at Domtar in Ohio. While Scott didn’t have any experience working with people with developmental disabilities, he loves to help and teach others so camp seemed like a good opportunity. “I really just enjoy helping out,” says Scott. He remembers walking into Camp Blue Skies-Ohio in 2015 and being greeted warmly with a handshake from Brent Sesler. “I quickly felt like I was with family,” he said. Scott had only signed up to volunteer for one day but he was enjoying it so much that he came back every day that week. Since then he’s volunteered in both North Carolina and Georgia. Why does he keep coming back? “I had been going through a tough time before that first camp,” Scott said. “Being at camp lifted my spirits. I came to help the campers and they ended up helping me.” Scott says he talks about Camp Blue Skies all the time and always shares the incredible joy he’s witnessed when a camper tries something new and succeeds. His words of wisdom for people thinking about volunteering: “Come to camp with an open mind. You’ll be encouraged by the campers and you’ll enjoy the camaraderie among volunteers. And you’ll leave feeling better about the world.”

Domtar employees return as volunteers! Domtar returned as our Camp Partner in North Carolina. Their incredible employees have become part of the Camp Blue Skies family, including President/CEO John Williams, who serves on our Board of Directors.

Caroline & Daniel: A volunteer love story

(if you can’t volunteer)

Caroline Greene volunteered while she was a student at Georgia Southern University. She graduated in 2014 but vowed to stay connected to the campers and our work.

Make a donation Camper fees only cover a fraction of actual cost per camper. Visit to make a donation.

In the fall of 2014, Caroline hadn’t found a job yet so she and a pal road-tripped to North Carolina to volunteer with us at YMCA Camp Harrison.

Email to discuss giving opportunities.

Do good while you shop

And that’s where she met Daniel Wood, who worked at Camp Harrison. During volunteer training, they teased each other about their schools. Daniel attended Appalachian State, GSU’s rival. According to Caroline, they really connected on the high ropes course. Despite her fear of heights, and after pleas from a camper, Caroline put on the harness and headed up the tower. She and Daniel encouraged campers from the tower platform. He then challenged her to try the “Tweety Bird,” a series of swings. She did. After that, they were both smitten. Caroline and Daniel followed the “during camp, we’re all just friends” rule. After camp, they started dating and became a couple. In the fall of 2016, they returned to Camp Harrison as volunteers. One evening, under the guise of taking photos at sunset, Daniel proposed to Caroline at The Chapel, an open-air building overlooking Lake Broyhill.
