Come to Camden, Maine

"The Jewel of the Maine Coast"

for a once-in-a-lifetime woodworking experience

Camden is an idyllic coastal community located in Penobscot Bay. A centuries old summer community, Camden has evolved into one of the prime vacation areas in the Northeast. With summer and winter activities that take advantage of our stunning geography, Camden is a wonderful place to travel solo or with the family. Relax on the water, trek along our scenic trails or take a risk during the US Toboggan Championship, Camden has something to offer everyone. All of the restaurants and activities are within walking distance of The Maine Coast Workshop.
