The Larch Outdoor Education Center

The Larch OE Center is a project that the Camp Paxson Preservation Project has been dreaming of for years and is finally coming to life in the next year. With the help of community supporters, volunteer professionals, and grant funding, Camp Paxson has been able to develop a residential outdoor education program that will pilot in fall 2021 with the goal to launch in spring 2022.
