This unique adventure for boys and girls age 14 – 17 is a true sea kayaking expedition on the coast of Maine. The trip will begin in Stonington and end in Rockport Harbor. The group will be self-sufficient and camp in wilderness campsites on uninhabited islands as they travel.
Along the way, the group will work on group decision making techniques while learning about the marine environment and the history of the area through which they travel. Participants will learn sea kayaking, camping and leadership skills, and be involved in the planning and execution of the expedition.

Teen Expeditions will gather at Maine Sport Outfitters in Rockport, Maine, at 9 a.m. on the day of the scheduled departure.
