Our Mission

The Blues Kids Foundation is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. We were established to preserve, perform and promote the Blues among America’s youth, parents and educators under the tutelage of highly qualified instructors. We provide scholarship tuition waivers for all of the student musicians (ages 12 – 18) that attend Fernando Jones’ Blues Camp. Some scholarship waivers also include lodging and transportation arrangements.

Our camp is designed especially for the Blues Kid who simply wants to perform this music and experience this priceless, cultural enrichment opportunity in a nurturing environment with like-minded others.
