Outdoor Learning & Education Center

Have you ever seen the look on a child’s face when they hold a bullfrog for the first time? It’s a kaleidoscope of emotions: trepidation, curiosity, wonder, joy. It is a powerful reminder of the emotional, physical, and spiritual benefits that come from interacting with nature.

The YMCA’s Outdoor Education & Learning Center (OLEC) is bringing those benefits to children and adults of all ages in the greater Androscoggin County area. Located on 93 wooded acres along Stetson and River roads in Auburn, OLEC is
a multi-purpose outdoor center tailored for kids and families.
