Facilities include a central lodge, bunkhouses, and cabin tents; a low and high ropes course; archery, rifle, and sporting clays ranges; a full waterfront; mountain hiking trails; a nature lab; and an art studio. Many programs are taught in cooperation with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
