Welcome to the CCLC


The Cobscook Community Learning Center (CCLC) began in 1999 when a group of people in easternmost Maine joined together to find ways of improving life in this region. Together, we envisioned a hub of educational opportunity. The CCLC is that hub. Our mission is to create educational opportunities that strengthen personal, community, and global well-being.

For High School Students

Cobscook Experiential Program

Based at the CCLC campus in Trescott, this program focuses on getting students outdoors, engaged in service-learning projects, and learning directly from people in our community while building their leadership, outdoor, academic and personal skills.

For Community

Community Education and Events

The CCLC offers a vast array of programs, events, and opportunities to the people of the Cobscook Bay region and beyond. 

For Educators

TREE: Transforming Rural Experience in Education

TREE’s mission is to strengthen schools and communities by developing a strengths–based, poverty-, trauma-, and equity-informed approach that will fortify rural school environments and lead to healthier and more successful outcomes for all students.

For Guests


Heartwood Lodge is a unique facility perfect for retreats, conferences, trainings, events and more. The CCLC also has many indoor and outdoor spaces available for a variety of events.
