Youth Programs

Put down the electronics and get outside! Our Babler Outdoor Education Center (OEC) offers a variety of ways for youth to explore the outdoors through science and nature-based education experiences:

  • Camps & Classes: put down the electronics and get outside with BablerWiLD
  • Scout programs: bring your scout troop for a fun program and earn your badge!
  • Trek & Travel trips: Due to the ongoing impact of the current pandemic, Trek & Travel trips will not be offered during the 2020-21 school year.  This includes the Smoky Mountains Adventure, Great Lakes Voyage, Atlantic Coastal Quest and Ozark Rocks trips.  At this time we are planning to resume the Smoky Mountains Adventure trips during the 2021-22 school year.  Learn more about the Smoky Mountains Adventure trip.

Family Programs

One of the best ways to enjoy nature is to do so with family. Create new memories with our family programs while enjoying the outdoors in beautiful Babler State Park.
