Imagine being surrounded by blue skies, fresh air, sandy feet, ocean waves, spectacular sunsets, family fun, feeling refreshed, new friendships, yummy food, hearing your kids laugh, being taken care of, happiness from the inside out….welcome to Blue Skies!

We believe Jesus, the son of God, walked the earth more than 2000 years ago and loved on and cared for people who were hurting.  As Christians, we want to follow His example to serve others and bring hope and comfort to those in need. Our mission at Blue Skies is to bring the hope of Christ to families living through the challenges of pediatric cancer. But, regardless of your faith, we invite you to be a part of a week of hope and renewal.

Join us in a safe and nurturing environment, where our staff understands your child’s needs. You can relax and engage in a fun-filled retreat and bond with other families on kindred journeys. Aside from your transportation to and from the retreat, there is no cost for you to attend thanks to the support of so many. There will even be a nurse or doctor at the retreat and a hospital nearby if your child has medical needs during the trip.

So, if your family is walking through the storms of childhood cancer, we want to lift you above the clouds and invite you to spend a week having fun at the beach. The retreats take place in the community of Windmark Beach in Port St. Joe, Florida which is on the Florida panhandle. The address is 101 Good Morning Street Port St. Joe, FL 32456. Windmark is on EST.  The Blue Skies office is located in Marietta, Georgia – just north of Atlanta.
