Thomaston — Trekkers will be holding its third annual Trekkers Week program Jan. 7 to 11 for seventh-grade students attending Thomaston Grammar School and Rockland District Middle School.

Led by Program Manager Meredith Lynt, this fun-filled week will give students a chance to experience a sneak preview of life as a Trekker, where they will participate in activities similar to the ones that are part of Trekkers’ six-year core programming.

“I am really excited to meet some of this year’s seventh-grade class and grateful to the RSU 13 district and RASA (Rockland Afterschool Alliance) for their support in making Trekkers Week happen,” said Program Manager Meredith Lynt in a news release.

Jan. 7 kicked off the four-day, action-packed week on the climbing wall at Camp Kieve in Nobleboro. Students will have an opportunity to go snow tubing at the Camden Snow Bowl and take to the bowling lanes at Oakland Park Lanes in Rockport. There will also be plenty of Trekkers-style games throughout the week.

Trekkers also held a similar Trekkers Week program for seventh-grade students from St. George School last fall. The 40 available spots for the core program for all seventh-grade students from the communities of RSU 13 will be opening at the end of January. More information about the community information meeting will be announced in the paper in the weeks to come.
