Outdoor Education Center
As of June 2020, regrettably Walled Lake Schools has temporarily suspended operation of the Outdoor Education Center. Thank you so much for your support of the OEC and we hope to be back soon. Please see the Advocate for our Schools link.
Thank you for your interest in The Walled Lake Outdoor Education Center!
We offer facilities and programs for student groups, religious organizations, scouts, school staff and corporate groups. We are confident that we can meet your needs whether staying for an overnight experience or using our facilities/programs for a day field trip, business retreat or graduation party. Our staff's main goal is to make our guests feel welcomed and comfortable while meeting the specific needs of each individual group.
Our facility is owned and operated by the Walled Lake Consolidated School District. Our Center has been in business since 1972. The WLOEC is situated on 11 acres of school property which lies adjacent to the 3,500 acres of the Proud Lake Recreation Area. Hiking trails, fishing, canoeing and cross country ski trails are all easily accessed from the center.
In the fall of 2006, the Walled Lake Outdoor Education Center completed over 2.5 million dollars worth of renovations and additions to its facility! New classroom space, a full renovation of existing space and air conditioning make this the perfect place for school camps, religious retreats, or a conference center for corporate groups and educational staff.
