For our older day students, this week-long program is open to youth aged 12-14 years old. Daily activities include an expanded sea kayaking curriculum, longer day paddles in Casco Bay, ropes course challenges, and an introduction to outdoor living skills. Waves will stay overnight in Cow Island base camps on Thursday of the program week. Students learn self, peer and community leadership skills through reflective activities and new friendships. Every participant is sure to be challenged and engaged whether they are returning campers or new to Rippleffect.
Thursday Overnight Adventure
Waves students will stay overnight on Cow Island on the Thursday night of their program week. Rippleffect will provide food for Thursday dinner, Friday breakfast, and Friday lunch. Waves students will build and then stay in “base camps” in a remote section of Cow Island and, with the support of the guides, will prepare dinner and breakfast over camp stoves for the group. Students will learn how to set up their own tents, tie tarps, keep their gear dry and safe, and cook outdoors.
The $475 program price includes the Thursday overnight on Cow Island. The four-day week of the 4th of July is offered at a discounted price of $320. (There is no overnight for this program.)
