Our dreams are as big as our bay is wide.

With your help, our campus is becoming a vibrant community hub for boating, environmental education, and bay stewardship. This is a community resource that is shared with residents and visitors to the Pleasant Bay region.

With a generous loan from the Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, PBCB acquired the McClennen property in late 2014. In less than six months, we raised more than $1 million necessary to secure the down payment and complete preliminary engineering, permitting, and construction projects.

We have now closed out a full-scale multi-year Phase 1 capital campaign – Charting Our Course – to raise $3.1 million for acquisition, rehabilitation, renovation, and repurposing our buildings, grounds, and facilities, and make possible the realization of our campus master plan for a multi-faceted community resource.

With philanthropic support from organizations, businesses, local municipalities and visionary individuals like you, we are creating a vibrant community resource that will enrich the lives of residents and visitors for generations to come.
