Kieve Wavus Education hosts dozens of retreats across its campuses throughout the year. Kieve’s Kennedy Learning Center in Nobleboro and Wavus’ Jewell Lodge in Jefferson are fantastic event facilities, each overlooking Damariscotta Lake. Cozy lakeside cottages and B&B style lodging make Kieve and Wavus popular destinations for board meetings, family reunions, wellness retreats and team building events. KWE’s staff can customize meals, amenities and program facilitation to fit each unique group.


KWE’s campuses provide a range of lodging options. From bunkbeds in large group cabins to hotel-style rooms with full bathrooms, Kieve and Wavus can each comfortably accommodate parties of 1 to 200. Dining staff are available to serve everything from simple continental breakfasts to multi-course dinners with prime rib and fresh lobster and everything in between. KWE chefs tailor the menu to fit all tastes and dietary restrictions.

KWE does not provide alcoholic beverages. Insurance requires clients to furnish their own alcohol and liquor license as applicable.


Kieve Wavus Education’s facilitators design and facilitate programs with a palpable positive impact on your group. KWE’s facilitators are well versed in experiential learning and have worked with groups of all shapes and sizes. Our team will ask questions, listen to your input, and tailor events and activities to meet your goals.


This is camp! Both Kieve and Wavus are situated on beautiful peninsulas on Damariscotta Lake that lend themselves to swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, fishing, hiking, tennis, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and of course – bonfires! Bring your gear or use ours!
