College of the Atlantic is hosting a special residential program, The Best of Acadia Adventure Week in partnership with our local Acadia Senior College (ASC). In this special program, the group staying on campus will meet in the morning with ASC members for a series of talks and then in the afternoons, we will be taking our group out and about to see some of the highlights of the Acadia area. There is a moderate level of activity for active adult learners.
