Overview

Cow Journeys combines the magic of the Cow Island experience with the excitement of exploring nearby islands on a two-night paddling trip. Ride our zip line, build a raft, get creative with an environmental art project, and set up your own camp on a remote island all in the same week! This program offers an exciting adventure for new and returning students alike.

Students should be dropped off at 7:30am Monday and be picked up at 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 equipment.

Girl’s Leadership Week

This all-girls adventure includes the same fun activities as Cow Journeys, but this program focuses on helping young women find confidence and courage through leadership. Students will use Cow Island as a base from which to explore the surrounding bay and islands by sea kayak. Along the way, girls will explore the definitions and styles of leadership through experiential activities, self reflection and peer leadership opportunities.

This program is led by strong female guides who are healthy role models and offer unique perspectives on what it means to be a strong female leader.

Boy’s Leadership Week

This all-boys adventure includes the same fun activities as Cow Journeys, but this program focuses on helping young men find confidence and courage through leadership. Students will use Cow Island as a base from which to explore the surrounding bay and islands by sea kayak. Along the way, boys will explore the definitions and styles of leadership through experiential activities, self reflection and peer leadership opportunities.

This program is led by strong male guides who are healthy role models and offer unique perspectives on what it means to be a positive male leader.
