New Teen Focused Iteration Of The Jack Mountain Summer Canoe Expedition In 2020

This summer we’ll be bringing back our canoe expedition, but with a slightly different approach. Now that we have a line up of other short canoe and outdoor living skill programs running during the summer, we wanted to make a long term, college-accredited program available to the younger generation. So starting this summer, we’ll be offering high school age students the opportunity to come out on the trail with us, learn a lot about the ins and outs of canoe guiding, expedition planning, and all the skills that build a competent outdoor leader. This program is also approved through our partnership with the University Of Maine At Presque Isle, so high schoolers can use it to get a leg up on college through the “early college” program offered by the university. This is an exciting thing for us to be able to offer high school students. If you’re a young person interested in learning about outdoor leadership, canoe guiding, or just want to get a few early credits while spending time outdoors before heading to college, this is the trip for you.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
