Your first stop for continuing medical education, sports camps and summer programs. Recognizing the fact that diverse interests exist in every community, and that even the most professionally trained individuals have a need to continue their education, Colby maintains an Office of Special Programs.

Each summer, more than 6,000 people from Maine and around the nation and other countries come to Colby for courses, conferences, seminars, and institutes in areas of medicine, public and professional services, youth programs, and sports camps. This educational experience is relaxed and informal. Come join us in Maine this summer.
