Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center-Expanding Potential For People Of All Abilities
Extraordinary things happen at the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC). A man with quadriplegia finds the courage and patience to take on the high ropes course, a woman who is blind feels the thrill of carving down some fresh powder, a group of teenage boys learn what it means to work hard as they set fence ties on a desert farm in Utah – these are mere glimpses of what happens at the BOEC.
For more than 35 years, the BOEC has been changing lives, or more accurately, showing people that they have the power within themselves to change their own lives.
The mission of the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center is to expand the potential of people of all abilities through meaningful, educational, and inspiring outdoor experiences, with a specialized focus on serving those with disabilities and special
needs. The BOEC offers an Adaptive Ski and Ride School, Wilderness Programs (on-site as well as mobile courses), Professional Team-building Retreats, and a unique Internship Program. Situated on 39 acres above Breckenridge, Colorado, the BOEC features a residential lodge, climbing wall, high ropes course, team initiatives, rafts, canoes, sea kayaks, teepees, as well as programs at many locales in the mountains and on the rivers of the Colorado Rockies and the Desert Southwest.
