Classes and Workshops - Cobscook Institute
Location: 10 Commissary Point Road, Trescott
The Cobscook Institute is a vibrant hub of activity Down East, offering workshops, classes, and events throughout the year: arts, music, food and farming, fitness, outdoor adventures, literary arts, and more! Accommodations for multi-day classes, conferences, and retreats are available on our campus at Heartwood Lodge.
Cobscook Institute is home to the Cobscook Experiential Program, an interdisciplinary high school program offered in partnership with Calais High School. Students at Cobscook enroll through Calais and can earn all of their graduation requirements through this innovative, experiential option.
The Cobscook Institute began in 1999 when a group of people in easternmost Maine joined together to find ways of improving life in this region. Our mission is to create educational opportunities that strengthen personal, community, and global well-being. We operate with the values of love, respect, humor, and creative bold adventure. No matter what people come here to do - take yoga, pick up new computer skills, plant a garden, get a high school diploma, start a business, or learn to play piano - they do it all regardless of their ability to pay, and in the context of an enriching, supportive community. Stop by anytime. The coffee is always on.
