From September 5th to December 19th, 2017, I lived on a 400 acre peninsula in midcoast Maine attending the Maine Coast Semester School at Chewonki. This school is for a small group of motivated and curious high school juniors and it has been running every semester since 1987. There were 45 of us and as well as taking classes, we worked on the adjoining farm and trails, studied natural ecosystems in various locations near campus, and participated in various wilderness training activities such as a 3 day solo trip, a 5 day group wilderness trip, and a wilderness first aid certification program. To get a more personal idea of what it was like, check out the blog I wrote every 2 weeks while I was away!
