The Outdoor Education Center (OEC) is versatile and can be used by local schools and community groups for a variety of events.
Spaces available for rental include: three buildings that can be used for classrooms; a large, one acre field space; trails for hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing; a kitchen; and an outdoor fire pit.

Community groups are also welcome to rent the OEC. The expansive outdoor area can fit the needs of various groups, including corporations and local businesses in need of an area for office retreats, leadership training, fitness-related events, etc. 

In the past, the OEC has been rented for yoga retreats, snowshoe family events, archery field shoot, candlelight ski, harvest celebration, multicultural events, low ropes course, and evening hikes.
