    Our teen science and leadership camps are packed with experiential learning adventures along Hurricane Island's breathtaking coastline, beaches, and trails. Challenge your mind as you explore, observe, and ask questions like a trained naturalist; challenge your body by hiking, and learning how to sail and rock climb.

    Spend a week on Hurricane Island, a beautiful, 125-acre, off-the-grid island in Penobscot Bay! Our popular week-long summer programs (for students ages 11-13, 13-15, 15-18) are packed with hands-on activities that help students to think, observe, and ask questions like trained naturalists, develop leadership skills, immerse themselves in the natural history and ecology unique to the island, and connect and learn from their peers, forming friendships and sharing laughs both while they learn and relax on Hurricane Island. And there's all the fun you'd expect being on an island in Maine.

    • Sailing in Penobscot Bay
    • Hiking, swimming, star gazing
    • Rock climbing and rappelling in an old granite quarry
    • Drawing, sculpture, building, and creative problem solving

    We encourage interested students to sign up for any or all of the programs listed below and improve their skills as a naturalist, observer, and recorder of change in our natural world. Join the Hurricane Island Community today!
