About Bob Bennett
Bob is excited to join the Maine Coast Semester community for 2020. Bob was first introduced to Chewonki as a wilderness trips leader in the summer of 2019, and continued through the fall as an outdoor educator for Chewonki’s Outdoor Classroom program.
Bob graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2016, with a degree in political science and participating on the school’s lacrosse team. Upon graduation Bob spent two years serving with AmeriCorps on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where he was building trails, assisting with marine mammal rescues, and engaging with the community. Bob also spent a semester with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS), where he discovered that he’s happiest at the intersection of wilderness and education.
When Bob’s not on Chewonki neck he enjoys spending time with his family and trying new activities. He recently picked up surfing and is eager to blend this new passion with his love of traveling. Friends and family often describe Bob as adaptable and a life-long learner, eager to meet new people and inspired easily.
