Families stay on College of the Atlantic’s oceanfront campus in Bar Harbor, enjoying meals in our award-winning dining hall, and staying in the Blair-Tyson dormitory suites. Click here for information about accommodations, getting to campus, and more.

College of the Atlantic’s Family Nature Camp was named in the May/June 2011 National Geographic Traveler as one the best outdoor family vacations in the U.S. and has been ranked one of the top five family camps by Disney’s Family Fun Magazine and Good Morning America.
