Crystalaire is one of Northern Michigan’s premiere guiding and outdoor education programs, with a history in the region that goes back to 1921. We strive to make the world a better place by offering opportunities to imagine and experience new social norms and ways of living together through wilderness expeditions. We offer trips and programs for families, organizations, private groups, and youth.
This is part of our philosophically driven youth programs, which emphasize participant choice, social learning, identity-based leadership, and strong group management skills. This is an overnight, outdoor, camping based program for youth – check out our website for other opportunities or to register. We are partnering with the Inland Seas Education Association to bring you this week-long schooner-based sailing expedition.
Just off off Michigan’s eastern shore lies an aquatic refuge of sunken ships and lake creatures. With snorkeling gear and archaeologists in assistance, we will be able to peruse this monument to Great Lakes shipping while conducting research to familiarize ourselves with the ecosystems of the Great Lakes. This is a science heavy trip, with opportunities to learn marine navigation, sail theory, freshwater ecology, leadership, and more.
