Hello Friend, 

I hope this message finds you well and filled with the same spirit of adventure that has brought us together through our Odyssey Discovery community. As we continue to explore the wonders of our world, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to each and every one of you for being a part of this journey.

Your curiosity, passion for learning, and adventurous spirit have inspired me, and it’s with great excitement that I reach out to you today with a unique opportunity.

I am thrilled to announce that I am seeking five educators to join me for an unforgettable week exploring the majestic beauty of Lake Superior aboard our sailboat, “Spirited.” From June 22nd to June 29th, we will embark on a journey filled with discovery, learning, and camaraderie.

Here’s a glimpse of what awaits you:

  • Sailing Adventures: We’ll spend our days navigating the pristine waters of Lake Superior aboard “Spirited,” learning about the lake’s ecology, geography, and history from local experts and scientists.
  • Exploration: Our journey will take us to breathtaking locations, including the picturesque shores of Marquette and the stunning vistas of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. We’ll have the opportunity to hike, explore hidden coves, and immerse ourselves in the natural wonders of this extraordinary region.
  • Educational Workshops: Throughout the week, we’ll engage in hands-on learning experiences led by knowledgeable guides and scientists. From studying aquatic ecosystems to delving into the cultural heritage of the Great Lakes region, there will be ample opportunities to expand your knowledge and expertise.
  • Community and Connection: Meals and lodging will be shared family-style at a Lake Superior beach house, providing a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for us to connect, share stories, and forge lasting friendships.

By joining this expedition, you will not only have the chance to deepen your understanding of Lake Superior and its surrounding environment but also to gain valuable insights and resources that you can bring back to your classrooms. Whether you teach science, history, geography, or any other subject, this experience will enrich your teaching practice and inspire your students to explore the world around them.

To make this opportunity even more enticing, I’m offering a special discount of $100 off the total cost if you book your spot by Friday, April 26th, 2024.

The full total cost for this unforgettable adventure, including all activities and meals from our base in Marquette, MI, is $1,895.

Spaces are limited to only five educators, so I encourage you to act quickly to secure your spot on board “Spirited.”. Sail On, Kirsten
