SUMMER 2017 – Stay Tuned for Info!
SUMMER WEEK 1: July 30 – Aug. 5 – ENDICOTT COLLEGE
WEEK TWO: AUGUST 7 – 13: COLLEGE OF THE ATLANTIC
Perched on the North Shore of the Massachusetts Bay, Endicott College is situated a convenient 20 miles north of Boston. Despite its proximity to the city, Endicott has a classic New England feel to it. Its oceanfront campus includes three private beaches on Salem Sound. We build time into our schedule so that participants can beach, bike, kayak, and/or visit the nearby towns of Boston’s “Gold Coast” — historic Salem, Gloucester, Marblehead, and Rockport! Our classes will be held in the magnificent Arts Center (photo on left).
