Clear Lake Education Center connects people of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to the natural world.
Clear Lake's education programs meet national science standards but also offer unique opportunities for student engagement and experiential learning, making use of outdoor settings and hands-on activities whenever possible. Check our Calendar (also at the bottom of each page) to see what dates are available for your visit!
For your group's information, we have a packing list that will help them prepare for their visit.

Programs: School groups visit Clear Lake for one, two, or three days at a time. While at the Education Center, CLEC staff provide standards-based educational programming that may be tailored to your group's specific needs. Many camp programs are also adaptable for presentation at your school or local green space. Click the link above for more information!
Financial Assistance: Clear Lake Education Center has an assistance fund for use by overnight school groups for whom we provide educational programming. This fund has been made available through various contributions. Please review the information at the link above and feel free to contact us with questions.
Activities: In addition to educational programs, we offer many recreational activities to groups staying at Clear Lake for one or more nights.
