Outdoor Education Center
The Outdoor Education Center is staffed by some of Winthrop’s finest students. Prior to their service at the OEC, all course facilitators are required to participate in and successfully complete a rigorous 40 hour high and low ropes course training based on standards outlined by the Association for Challenge Course Technology ® (ACCT). All are trained, tested, and experienced in the physical, psychological, logistical, technical, and safety dimensions of the OEC. The mental, emotional, and physical safety and well-being of program participants is our first priority. Facilitators are selected on the basis of individual group needs and interests.
OEC Director: Mr. Geoff Morrow
