Sultana Education Foundation Summer Programs Filling Quickly January 28, 2015 – Chestertown, Maryland: The rush is on to register for the Sultana Education Foundation’s Summer Enrichment Programs. Targeted at students ages 7-17, the Foundation’s Summer Programs include three and five-day voyages on the 1768 schooner SULTANA, five-day kayak adventures on the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, and four and five-day canoe and kayak dayprograms for younger students. New for 2015, the Foundation is offering a five-day program on the SULTANA for High School students that will see the schooner and her crew voyage south to St. Mary’s College off the Potomac River. The Foundation’s Summer 2015 programs are already 50% full, with several individual trips nearing capacity.
“These are incredible experiences, which is why we have students coming back year after year,” said Sultana’s Paddling Director John Mann. “Whether students sail on SULTANA or join one of our paddling expeditions they are getting a truly once-in-alifetime experience that gives them a chance to see incredible parts of the Chesapeake.”
The Sultana Education Foundation has a long-standing commitment of providing generous financial aid for its Summer Programs. Thanks to support from The Indian Point Foundation and The Allen Malcolm Fund, the Foundation’s Partner School Program offers students from select schools in Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties tuition discounts of up to 40% for five-day residential programs on the schooner SULTANA and five-day kayak trips.
