Sebi Crocetti ’17 is spending his junior spring away from Lincoln Academy. In January he completed his Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course taught by Wilderness Medical Associate’s Eric Duffy (who also teaches Wilderness First Aid in LA’s Anatomy and Physiology class) and Andy Bezon. This course is offered at the Chewonki Foundation.
He is now enrolled in a spring semester high school program offered through Kroka Expeditions in Marlow, NH. Kroka’s “Vermont Semester” entails a 700 mile circumnavigation of Vermont by cross country ski, paddle, and bike, with a short trip into Northern Maine and a crossing into Canada as they head West toward New York. The first leg of the trip will be a 60 day, 450 km ski expedition. Student participants, who are all of high school age, led by adult instructors, will carry their own packs and tent along the way.
After skiing through Canada, they will enter the waterways of Northern Vermont and begin the canoeing and rowing part of their journey taking them another 25 days and 340 km through Lake Champlain and into Southern Vermont. They will then bike another 14 days and 160 km back to Kroka’s base camp in Southern New Hampshire. The program is fully accredited and students are eligible for college credit.

Sebi will return to Lincoln Academy in September 2016 for his senior year.
