Pok-O-MacCready Outdoor Education Center
Our Mission is to encourage a sense of awe in the presence of nature, to build self-confidence, to nurture self-worth and to promote teamwork, communication and tolerance for students of all ages. We pursue excellence in our field through the four pillars of our educational philosophy – Teambuilding, Natural Science, Living History, and High Adventure.
Each year, more than 50 schools bring groups to the Pok-O-MacCready Outdoor Education Center. These groups come from all over the Northeast and Quebec. PMOEC is open for the duration of the school year (September through June) and offers programming for students from elementary age through college level. A diverse staff of experienced outdoor professionals guarantees each group an educational, fun, and memorable experience.
The campus consists of over 300 acres inside the beautiful 6 million acre Adirondack State Park - the largest wilderness east of the Mississippi River. PMOEC is located five hours from Boston and New York City and about two hours from Montreal. Our property is criss-crossed by more than 20 miles of cross-country skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and nature trails.
