Celebration of Love & Community
Ferry Beach is grateful to its neighbors and community friends!
In today’s busy and often superficial world, we all crave something deeper. Maybe it’s relationships that go beyond the surface, or a gathering that allows for us to share our joys and challenges with one another.
We at Ferry Beach invite you to rediscover the importance of community. Let Ferry Beach be a gathering spot for you and your family.
Let’s revive the idea of a building a community right where we live. Let's move forward together with laughter and love.
Our initial event was a Valentine Community Dinner! We want to build other activities and events which support our community.
It is our pleasure to get to know you, our neighbors, while you relax and build relationships within your community.
Don't be a Stranger this Summer!!
Ferry Beach is a retreat and conference center on the beach in Saco Maine. We have been here for almost 120 years, providing youth camps, conferences, retreats and programs for families, individuals and organizations. Starting in 2019 we will have additional time to share our wonderful campus with our neighbors and friends who live, work and play in the Saco-Biddeford area.
Over the last five years we have hosted the Saco Shoreline Commission exploring the challenges of beach erosion. With the Wells Preserve, we sponsored a workshop around climate change, beach erosion and what to do in an emergency geared to beach issues. We have hosted the Ferry Landing residents. Several of our neighbors have hosted family gatherings, weddings and birthday parties at Ferry Beach.
Our next big event will be June 13th during our volunteer week called "Work and Play Week. It is during this week that we fix up and clean up the campus making way for all of the guests who will come through our doors in the summer.
More info will be available as we get closer to the event, but we would love to have you join us again for dinner on June 13th.
