Camden Hills Regional High School is located on Rte. 90 in Rockport, between Rte. 1 and Rte. 17
FROM THE SOUTH**: Come north on Rte. 1 until you are about 4 miles north of Waldeboro. Take Rte. 90W (a right hand turn off Rte. 1). Follow Rte. 90E about 10 miles. Shortly after the 3rd stoplight (Meadow St) you will see a granite sign for the high school on your left.  Come in the driveway (“Keelson Drive” on GPS) and skip the first two right hand turns. The visitors parking lot and additional parking will be marked with “NEACT” signs. Come in the main door (NEACT) and we’ll b set up in the lobby.

** Saturdays during foliage season Rte. 1 can be very slow. Your alternative is to come north on 295 to Gardiner (Exit 49). Follow the US-201 signs through Gardiner and over the bridge.
