With advance notice, the kitchen is able to offer vegetarian box
lunches and entrees. They are also able to accommodate many special
diets with advance notification.
Schedule - A tentative program for the school will be available. The school takes place at the Gates Auditorium each day from June 14 to 25, 2004. There will also be a few social events.
Possible outings and activities - In addition to the regular academic and social activities of the school, there are many cultural and outdoor activities in Bar Harbor and the surrounding region during the summer. We will help coordinate some extracurricular activities if there is sufficient interest, e.g., a group hike in the Acadia National Park, or a boat ride for whale watching.
