Riley School in Rockport is 50 years old this year and to start the school is inviting all alumni and past and present Riley Family members, to pack up their family, all their camping gear and come join us on our wide-open campus for the weekend. From Aug. 12 to 14, participants will be re-living past times with classmates and faculty while re-connecting with current Riley Family members. Various activities will be offered over the weekend, including art projects, music, dancing and of course, stargazing, with Friday and Saturday night being peak nights for watching Perseids Meteor Shower.

Pen Bay Pan will perform live by campfire, Saturday night starting at 6 p.m. showcasing their sound and talent after making the Riley campus their new “home base.” Director, Kyle von Neumann, has joined the staff recently as music director for Riley. Pen Bay Pan is a steel drum band made of Midcoast Maine community members and the ensemble has been around for 20 years.
