Snow Pond Rectractable BannerA preponderance of evidence demonstrates that when arts and educational organizations take a leadership role in rural community and economic development, they drive results in extraordinary ways. From defining regional identity, to attracting regional investments and expanding tourism, to fostering civic engagement from the schoolhouse to seniors, the arts play a critical role in creating vibrant, thriving communities. Snow Pond Center for the Arts (aka New England Music Camp Association) has embraced this leadership role in order to realize a vision of improving the quality of life for residents and visitors in Central Maine. 

We have weighed the specific challenges of Maine along with those that other rural areas are facing against the inspiring potential we know this region possesses, and have developed a mission that describes our approaches to enhancing the quality of life in this region by leveraging the many gifts that the arts offer to all.

Snow Pond provides a variety of opportunities for all people, regardless of age or economic position for equal access to quality arts education, programming, and events

Connecting Elementary and High School Students


The University of Maine Augusta has been proud to advise Snow Pond Center for the Arts on the purchase and installation of distance learning technology. Connecting elementary and high school age students across our rural state to resources previously beyond their reach will provide them with additional pathways to higher learning and future success. - - Dr. Rebecca Wyke, President, University of Maine at Augusta
