Birthwise is centrally located in the small town of Bridgton, Maine. The campus is an hour west of Portland, Maine – the state’s urban hub, a port city on Casco Bay – and half an hour east of the White Mountains in New Hampshire – a national destination for hikers, mountaineers, skiers, and snowboarders.
The town itself is home to Shawnee Peak Ski Area, a skiing and riding resort ten minutes from campus. The greater Lakes Region – encompassing Bridgton, Naples, Casco, and Sebago – has numerous lakes and rivers and a vast network of public trails and beaches including those on Sebago Lake, the largest lake in Maine.
Downtown Bridgton is home to a thriving independent bookstore, coffee shops, a movie theater, a drive-in theater, several restaurants and delis, a Reny’s department store (of course), the Lakes Environmental Association, Pondicherry Park, and a massage therapy school.
