Welcome to the Maine Outdoor Education Program!

The Maine Outdoor Education Program offers school age children three instructional fitness activities per year, in the fall, winter, and spring. Through this experience of activity in the outdoors, the programs seek to highlight the connection between personal health and environmental stewardship. These activities are entirely free to the school group and include instruction from skilled guides, use of recreational equipment (nordic skis, snowshoes, canoes, kayaks, mountain bikes), and additional seasonal gear as needed.

Since 2012, MOEP has been committed to creating a meaningful and enriching opportunity for students, emphasizing environmental awareness and lifetime fitness. MOEP has developed an interdisciplinary curriculum to complement the students’ classroom teaching with time devoted to outdoor activity. This serves to integrate an awareness of aerobic fitness with future stewardship of the environment.
