SITKA NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK (March 9, 2017)
Join fellow high school aged youth on an adventure of a lifetime by participating in a kayaking expedition within Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. The trip, taking place from June 2-9, will explore the rich natural and cultural heritage of the region. Participants will have the opportunity to learn backcountry camping and travel skills while developing healthy relationships and personal leadership skills through the use of Sitkans Against Family Violence’s (SAFV) REBOUND curriculum.
For more information about the program or for an application, visit Sitka National Historical Park’s website at www.nps.gov/sitk or SAFV’s website at http://www.safv.org/, or email Ryan Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hard copies can be picked up at the park’s visitor center during business hours (Tuesday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.). Applications are due by April 7th. A maximum of eight students will be selected to participate in the trip. Due to the contributions of partner groups, the trip is being offered free of charge. This trip is open to students from Sitka, Kake, Angoon, Hoonah, and Gustavus.
The Glacier Bay kayaking expedition is a partnership between Sitka National Historical Park, Alaska Geographic and SAFV. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for youth to connect to their national parks and public lands through immersive experiences in wilderness areas.
