Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime and become a volunteer at Blue Skies! You will make a difference in the lives of so many, from children with cancer to their siblings, their parents, and even the other volunteers. 


As a result of your commitment to serve, lives will be transformed and the impact is immeasurable.  You will witness weary mommas and daddies gain strength; sad and frustrated kids laugh and play; strangers become friends; families grow in their love for each other; our volunteer team working tirelessly for the good of others and, most importantly, you will witness people find the hope that comes from Jesus Christ.  These amazing things will happen because we serve a loving and gracious Heavenly Father who is willing to use us for His plan and purpose when we say “yes”.

No matter what talents you have, there are volunteer roles for almost everyone. All retreat volunteers serve on a Family Host Team where they connect relationally with our Blue Skies’ guest families.  Each volunteer also serves on a Crew to help make the retreat possible.  The Crews are Food; Care and Recreation. While each of the volunteer crews has unique roles and responsibilities, we work together serving the families, ensuring that their retreat is the experience of a lifetime.

Our vision is to lift families above the clouds of childhood cancer and help them “retreat” from their storms.  These precious families are often stretched emotionally, financially, physically and spiritually-sometimes even to the breaking point.  Blue Skies allows them a chance to get away and find hope and healing. As we care for and serve our guests in tangible ways, they can relax and engage in a fun-filled retreat and bond with other families on kindred journeys.


(All retreats are held at Windmark Beach in Port St. Joe, FL, Saturday-Saturday)
