About Us

The Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to expand the potential of people with disabilities and special needs through meaningful, educational, and inspiring outdoor experiences. The BOEC began back in 1976 with a staff that consisted of volunteers only, gear that came from their closets, and food that was donated or provided by the clients. The BOEC has come a long way since then. Most recently honored as a finalist in Colorado's 2003 El Pomar Foundation Award for Excellence program, the BOEC offers Adaptive Skiing and Snowboarding, Wilderness Courses (on-site as well as mobile courses), Professional Challenge Courses, and a unique Internship Program. Situated on 39 acres, the BOEC boasts a climbing wall, a high ropes course, high and low team initiatives, rafts, canoes, sea kayaks, cabins, teepees, and much more, as resources for experiential education.
