MEET THE TEAM

 

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

TEEN

It was AWESOME!  After two days I realized I don't need or miss my phone and iPad.  It's more social,  We're actually talking to one another.

LEADER

In Eastport everyone knows everyone.  At home there are too many people to think about knowing everyone.  Technology isn't the enemy but how we use it. I don't like how it's controlling our lives. 

PARENT

The sunrises and tides are amazing! I love the beauty of the area, exploring the local shops, searching for sea glass, attending the symphony and more. 

Setting aside my phone  and trying new adventures was completely refreshing. 

Become

self-reliant 

and relish your independence. 

Savor the

present

moment.

Cultivate a deeper awareness of your surroundings

and connection

with others.

Practice 

new skills that

don't require technology.
