Wood Scholarship Fund


Why do we offer scholarships to Passages Adventure Camp?

The answer to this question is evident to all of the children and parents who've already participated in Passages: it is a life-changing and empowering experience we wish EVERY child could experience at least once their life.  This may not be possible but that is not going to stop us from trying to fun-raise money for as many scholarships as we can possibly offer.  All donations are tax-deductible gathered by the Enrichmond Foundation.

Who is eligible?

City of Richmond residents with children between the ages of 5 and 14 who have demonstrated need according to the following formula:  Household income divided by the number of children under the age of 18 = less than $15,000.

Why is it called the Wood Scholarship?

Christian Wood was a Passages Kayaking Staff Member for 4 years and a Camper since the age of 8.  Although he left this world far too soon he made a tremendous mark on our Campers, Our Staff and Our Community.  Here's how he viewed his City, his River and his Adventure Community.
