Penobscot Bay Leadership Program

0.00

Dates: July 15-28, 2019

Cost: Free

Note: This course is offered for rising 8th and 9th grade boys in 2019 and for girls in 2020. 

In this adventure, three midcoast organizations come together to provide ten local boys with full scholarships and a rare opportunity to experience three exceptional programs rolled into one. Kicking off in Rockland, Maine, students will spend three days at the Apprenticeshop learning the basics of sailing and seamanship during the day and staying overnight at Wheeler Bay basecamp. On the fourth day of the course, we shift gears and locations, transferring students to Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership where they spend the next few days living on the island and getting involved in a variety of projects to help them understand the ecosystems of Penobscot Bay and human impacts on the environment. On the final leg of the program, students will load all their gear and food for four days to an Outward Bound 30-foot open sailboat, which serves as home and classroom as they apply the skills they've learned to their final expedition. Through living and working closely together, students will learn far more than seamanship and scientific method. The habits learned and strengthened through this adventure will serve students for life, and for whatever challenge is next.
