Outdoor Education Center

Since 1956, the Glen Helen Outdoor Education Center has been dedicated to helping children and adults develop healthy connections to the natural world, to themselves and to their community.  We pride ourselves on a holistic learning practice that incorporates the many human ways of knowing; we especially like science, play, art, curiosity, music, drama, and friendship.
