Raleigh's vision is of a Bermuda where young people work together, regardless of social background and culture - challenged to raise their aspirations, supported to believe in themselves and inspired to be part of a global community active in making their world a better place.

BIOS has been running the Environmental Project for the Raleigh Bermuda camp since 2005. BIOS partners with Raleigh to nurture native and endemic trees, plant new native and endemic trees, as well as cull the invasive casurina an mimosa trees at Ferry Point. The goal of the day is to adequately equip trainees with skills and endurance requirements they will need to face the Environmental portion of their summer expeditions. The long term partnership is supported through Ocean Academy’s Curriculum Enrichment Program at BIOS.
