Upcoming Summer 2014, Our 134rd Season
The seaside Chautauqua community of Ocean Park, ME has 133 years of history
and heritage as a summer assembly in the Chautauqua tradition.
in 1881, Ocean Park is
a retreat to the quiet of the pines and the beach offering lectures,
workshops, family programs, and opportunities for spiritual growth and
renewal in a non-denominational, inter-faith setting. The Temple Garden and pergola can provide you with a time for quiet reflection or
meditation and at the end of your stay, you will go home feeling just a bit
more content and looking forward to your next Ocean Park encounter.
