We are dedicated to creating and preserving an open and sustainable island community that enhances the education opportunities of Maine youth and beyond.
I know I sound overdramatic, but it’s actually very hard to put into words what it means to be part of the Hurricane Island community. The closest analogy I can think of is being in a secret club with some of the coolest, kindest people you’ve ever met. Just knowing about the island feels like you’re in on a fragile secret, but it’s also a call to action to protect Hurricane and what it stands for. The Hurricane Island community is unlike anything else I’ve ever been a part of; it helped me connect with nature and myself, and I met some amazing people along the way. I would jump at the chance to go back to Hurricane…I’m not exaggerating when I say it was one of the best, eye-opening weeks of my life. Thank you so much for making it happen.
