Cow Islanders | Ages 11-13


In this week-long overnight program, Islanders will sea kayak, explore the Cow Island challenge course, play intensely fun games, and learn wilderness camping and cooking skills. Students will put their new outdoor living skills to practice on a one-night paddle to a neighboring Casco Bay island.  Other Islander program activities may include environmental art projects, yoga, leadership initiatives, tide pooling, fire building competitions, Open Mic nights, talent shows, and more!

Students should be dropped off at 7:30am Monday and be picked up between 4:45 and 5:00pm Friday at 58 Fore Street next to SailMaine.  Students will receive a comprehensive gear list. Rippleffect provides all meals and specialized sea kayaking and camping equipment.
