Outdoor Education Center at Camp Olympia
Camp Olympia is situated on 101 acres in the piney woods of East Texas on Lake Livingston. This picturesque location is an ideal environment for experiencing nature first-hand for its Outdoor Education Center at Camp Olympia.
For over 40 years, Camp Olympia was the facility for the Houston Independent School District Outdoor Education Center (HISD OEC). Although Olympia’s exclusive partnership with HISD has ended, Olympia is continuing to provide first-rate outdoor education. Former HISD certified teachers lead the Camp Olympia Outdoor Education Center to ensure that the exceptional quality of hands-on, educational programming will continue for schools and districts throughout the area.
3-Day/2-Night Programs are standard, but day programs and longer programs are available upon request. Our staff will work with your group to create an experience tailored to your specific needs.
Groups can choose from activities such as Forest Ecology, Aquatic Ecology, Fishing, Canoeing, Geology, Conservation, Team-building, Orienteering, High Ropes, Gardening, Texas History, Horseback, Astronomy, Junior Golf Instruction, and Archery.
Our curriculum is carefully aligned with the TX TEKS and our staff is trained in best practices for outdoor education based upon the University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science BEETLES Leadership Institute for Science Education.
Cabins are setup for group building, with 14-20 bunks in each. Girls’ cabins are on one end of camp with boys’ cabins on the other. All cabins have heat and air conditioning. Indoor meeting space, including audio and visual equipment, is also available. Camp Olympia can provide bed linens and towels upon request.
