Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
In daily classes with a professional chef, study basic cooking techniques and Downeast culinary history as you learn to prepare meals from Maine’s regional repertoire, including seafood chowders and the famed lobster. Visit and converse with local organic farmers and lobstermen to gain new perspectives on Maine’s culinary favorites. Climb aboard a working Maine lobster boat for a spin around the Bay, then drop by Roosevelt International Park on Campobello Island for maritime tradition. Local guests and fresh foods prepared by participants highlight evening meals.


Highlights

• Enjoy views of Passamaquoddy Bay as you create authentic Maine cuisine as well as cheese and bread in a stone cottage kitchen located on an organic blueberry farm.
• Small classes provide lots of hands on cooking time with colorful chef Audrey Patterson.
• Explore FDR's summer cottage on Campobello Island and lighthouses, and go whale watching board the lobster boat “Lady H.”

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles over uneven terrain. Standing for periods of 3-4 hours while cooking.

Coordinated by Cobscook Community Learning Center.
