Founder Story • Jim Miner

Jim always believed that “traditional education isn’t for everyone” and that Washington County needed a place that would promote experiential learning. When he heard of the initial conversations about creating a place to provide responsive educational opportunities that ultimately led to the founding of CCLC, he knew he could offer his skills.

“Learning by doing” is core to experiential education. Cobscook Experiential Program’s hands-on experiences allow for reflection and skill growth, yielding academic knowledge and much more. Here’s a glimpse: Cobscook’s fall expedition focused on regional history in the 1600’s. Students explored Salem, MA to understand what led to the Salem Witch Trials; learned from the Wampanoag people about their history and experiences today; explored the economic factors driving Europeans to colonize North America; and visited Plimoth Plantation, a hands-on living history site.
