"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." – John Dewey


John Dewey’s philosophy of experiential education captures the essence of what the Outdoor Education Center (OEC) strives to achieve with its educational programs.  Our goal is to offer opportunities and provide the tools necessary to create these life experiences.
