The Apprenticeshop, the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership (HICSL), and the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School (HIOBS) have united around a shared vision: to foster the development of character and inspire a curiosity for science and craftsmanship for midcoast Maine youth. Through hands on engagement in seamanship, science and sailing we hope to inspire innovation, curiosity and develop leadership that will have a lasting impact in the community.
The program is open to rising 8th and 9th grade male and female students in the Midcoast region, from Waldoboro to Northport. Students from out of this target region are encouraged to apply, and we will place them on a waitlist. If there are course spots available after May 15, 2018 we will open them up to waitlisted students.
In 2018 we offer both a boys and girls boat to those entering into 9th grade. We offer excellent merit based scholarships and needs based financial aid and will never leave a student behind because of cost.
Tuition is $2,500. We offer financial aid and have created Scholarships that are available through local schools.

Students spend the first 3 days at the Apprenticeshop learning seamanship, sailing and traditional building techniques. On day 4 the move to Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership where they dive into sustainability, marine science and local fisheries issues and techniques. Students spend the remaining day on expedition with Outward Bound, applying all of their skills in real time in the field, working together as a team and developing themselves as people.
If you are interested, we will pass on your info to Outward Bound who will lead the enrollement process.
