About McDowell Environmental Center at Camp McDowell
The McDowell Environmental Center (MEC) is a unique learning experience for thousands of students and teachers throughout the region every year. More than a walk a woods, this non-sectarian program welcomes all students regardless of race, religion, or gender. Many classes can be adapted to accommodate individuals with special needs. Schools typically come for three days and two nights to learn knowledge and skills from excellent instructors that are impossible to find in a classroom.
Our mission is to connect people to their environment, teach respect for the Earth and its beings, and to promote a commitment to lifelong learning.
