 About Us

​Close to Nature, Close to Home

Located in Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park in West St. Louis County, the Babler Outdoor Education Center (OEC) is a 300-acre retreat offering environmental, outdoor, recreational and teambuilding opportunities to individuals and groups of all ages and abilities. The facility provides the ideal outdoor setting for school groups, scout groups, summer camps, retreat groups and community organizations to spend the day or the week together.   
Operated by the Rockwood School District in partnership with Missouri State Parks, the OEC is open January–November of each year and provides the perfect place to get away, without having to go away.

The Babler Outdoor Education Center offers outdoor education programs to all groups. Programs are completely customizable and can vary from two hours to several days in length. 

​Contact the Babler Outdoor Education Center office today to schedule a tour or plan your group’s experience!​
