We will break one time in the morning and one time in the evening for 10 minutes and somewhere near noon for an hour for lunch.

SUNDAY

Class begins at 8:30 EST, ending between 3:30 and 4:00 so that students who need to travel home can get home early enough (this is primarily for the New York, Boston, Maine and Northern Vermont folks).

WHERE TO STAY

There are plenty of Airbnb options in our area but the place we really recommend is Big Sky Hilltop. The proprietors, Joan and Josette can accommodate a group of students. Over the years the people who have stayed there had gotten to know Joan and Josette very well, as well as each other. The price is right and the breakfasts are absolutely incredible.

Big Sky Hilltop, ca. 1924
