Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership: Offering Summer Education, Summer Fun

A dozen miles off the coast of Rockland is an island – and an opportunity. The Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership this summer will give dozens of youngsters hands-on scientific education in an off-the-grid, environmentally sustainable island community. But while science serves as a “lens” for teaching leadership, says Program Director Phoebe Jekielek, participants will also engage in traditional camp activities.

“We want kids to walk away saying ‘that was awesome,’” Jekielek says.

Programs Are Also Offered To Students Each Academic Year

The center, operated by the non-profit Hurricane Island Foundation, will offer summer programming to both middle and high school students, and will reach kids from across the U.S. and as far away as China, Jekielek says. The center also offers school-year programming to many hundreds of students each academic year. Information about the programming is available at the center’s website, http://www.hurricaneisland.net/summer-programs/
