Mr. Zierk's Amazing Maine Adventure Grades 8-9


Tom Zierk, Former ELA Teacher, Ottoson Middle School

For rising eighth and ninth graders. Limited to 12. Students must submit an ONLINE APPLICATION

 Maine offers endless opportunities for amazing adventures. Our week-long journey begins at Acadia National Park where we will camp at Blackwoods campground, hike, kayak and explore the coast of this beautiful area. We will even get up early one morning to watch the sunrise from the top of Cadillac Mountain. We then head to the St. Croix river, at the Maine/Canada border, for a three-day, two-night wilderness canoe trip led by professional guides. This is a program for highly adventurous, mature students who don’t mind being wet, uncomfortable, and personally challenged. The trip will also provide some amazing, unforgettable experiences. As the saying goes, “Adventures sometimes hurt, but boredom can be fatal.”

 PLEASE NOTE: Due to limited space, students must submit an ONLINE APPLICATION for this program, due May 1st.

Please visit our Facebook page for some great pictures of last year’s program plus some spectacular photos of the Canoe the Wild portion of the trip. Several mandatory meetings will be held prior to the trip to ensure all participants are prepared and fully understand the rigors of the trip. This is Mr. Zierk’s third year leading this trip.
