A Vital Part of the Chewonki Experience
Our idea of good work goes beyond the classroom. We understand work as a vital and exhilarating part of the Chewonki experience. Students and faculty work together to maintain our campus. We strive for excellence, whether we’re painting a boat, raising the wall of a new building, or sweeping the kitchen.
Maine Coast Semester students also go off campus to learn about and help meet the needs of the people of midcoast Maine. This service often happens during afternoon work program or on weekends. A group of students might deliver necessary firewood to a neighbor or take produce from our farm to the food pantry in Wiscasset.
