About Our Auction

The Great Escape Online Auction is back, and just in time for the holidays! Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a family excursion, or a retreat with friends, we have something for you. This year, the online auction will start on November 24th and close at the end of day on December 15th. This will be a great opportunity to bid on or purchase escape packages for friends or family for gifts. Give away an entire package, split it up among loved ones this holiday season, or keep as a treat for yourself!

This year's Great Escape auction will again feature some of the best escapes in Maine. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIN for updates, and sign up for our monthly e-newsletter by contacting us at

Click on "All Items" to the left to see all the items available to bid on!

Package winners will receive a printable certificate to give to a friend or loved one once the auction closes. If an item is bought outright, we will send that certificate along shortly after the item is purchased. Someone on our staff may reach out to you for a mailing address to send physical certificates if applicable.

*You do not need to use all of the items in a package in one consecutive weekend/all at once*

"Wayfinder literally changed my life. I’m getting my permit. I got CPR/First Aid certified. I’m going to be able to have a diploma. I got an education without dropping out. I’ll be forever grateful.” -Emily, Class of 2023

“Enrolling in this program saved my life. Before Passages I was very lost when it came to school. I thought I was going to drop out at one point. Wayfinder allowed me to work at my own pace and focus on real life core skills. Wayfinder was a life-changer for me. I've learned so many useful life skills during my time in this program that will help me with my future. I have been accepted to college in the Human Services program and I am excited to begin my next chapter. Thank you for the amazing experience.” -Autumn, Class of 2023

“If you are thinking about attending Wayfinder you should know that they are very nice and helpful. If you are having trouble with course work they are good at answering any questions that you may have. If you have trouble focusing in a public school setting, the one-on-one meetings with the teachers may work better for you like they did for me. Another thing to know about Wayfinder is if there is a career you are interested in or want to pursue they will help you and connect you to people in the field you're interested in. Thanks Wayfinder!” -Ethan, Class of 2023
