It will take a hundred hearts to finish Heartwood Lodge.
Please join us.

Join the CCLC’s Hundred Hearts Campaign to help finish Heartwood Lodge, and we’ll send you a heart ornament every year for five years!

One hundred people pledging just $200/year for five years brings in $100,000 toward the completion of Heartwood Lodge.

Participation is limited to the first hundred donors!

The Project:

Heartwood Lodge consists of two new buildings on the CCLC campus.

Building #1: The Residence

The residence is a two-story building with thirteen dorm rooms, including two handicap accessible rooms, one studio apartment (intended for visiting artists or others seeking solitude for work or study), a common room, a kitchenette, laundry facilities, and multiple outdoor spaces such as patios, gardens, and an outdoor classroom. 

Building #2: The Classrooms
The classroom building is a one-story building that provides our high school program with a large classroom and teachers’ office. It also adds a multi-purpose, large function room for other classes, workshops, or gatherings, a spacious and welcoming lobby, and a beautiful outdoor patio.

We are so close!

The Cobscook Community Learning Center has raised over $2.5 million of the $2.8 million it will take to build both buildings that make up Heartwood Lodge. We are close to closing the campaign!

The Impact:

Heartwood Lodge allows us to offer multi-day programs, overnight summer camps, and a new host of courses linked with our burgeoning partnerships with institutions such as University of New England, University of Maine, and others. Everything from weekend courses in health and fitness or the arts to credit-bearing courses with colleges and universities will come to life within the walls of Heartwood Lodge. Additionally, the Lodge allows the center to market itself as a retreat and conference center, which changes the profile of our revenue significantly by making us more self-sufficient. 

Heartwood Lodge creates employment for local people from the construction phases right through long-term operations. Both buildings incorporate local materials at every opportunity and are built by local people. It will take personnel to maintain and operate the buildings, as well as to teach the programs made possible by the increased space. The project has also allowed the center to switch all campus heating to a wood-fired system. This wood will be supplied by local wood harvesters. 

The Hearts

Heart ornaments will be sent to participants each year. The first year, our hearts are made by Mark Wren, of Wrenovations in Robbinston. Mark and Arlene Wren are longtime CCLC supporters, and are thrilled to donate to this first year of the Hundred Hearts Campaign. Future ornaments will be made from pottery, paper, beads, or metal. All will be locally-crafted.
