Spirit Of Massachusetts Tall Ship Camp and The Paint Factory

Before talking to the kids I was expecting them to be dying to get off the ship as it was basically 5 days of cloudy rainy weather but to my surprise they were all in great spirits and it was quite apparent that they had made some serious friendships.   One of the kids when asked about the wet conditions they said proudly “it’s sailors weather”!  They met as strangers just 5 days prior but became shipmates for life.  The videos tell the story and the first one will be posted at 10AM.

Tall Ship Camp Aboard The Spirit Of Massachusetts

The Crew pulled into the GMHC this afternoon, luckily I was at the Farmer’s Market and was able to fly down and catch them as they pulled up to the dock.  I have tons of pics and video to share with you over the course of the next week.  Sharon will be sailing also and get the on hands pics only you can get while at sea.

On Sunday a group of kids gathered on the dock behind the Heritage Center for the adventure of a lifetime! They were taking a 5 day trip on the Spirit of Massachusetts using the ocean as a classroom.

Tall ship sailing involves teamwork, adventure and strength of character. This is the platform off which the kids and crew will explore the sea. This summer Gloucester Museum School Project Adventure Summer Camp is offering four opportunities for campers to embark on a fantastic voyage of discovery!

Thirteen year old Gloucester student Jessica Blazewicz will be writing log entries for the trip and sending them to us to share with our readers. Watch for upcoming posts on this incredible adventure!
