Wolverine Outdoor Education Center is located in the Sturgeon River valley two miles north of Wolverine, Michigan. Rolling hills, fields, ponds, streams, and cedar swamps offer a wide variety of wildlife habitats for study and exploration. The 360 acre property is adjacent to the Sturgeon river and connects to thousands of hardwood state forest acres.

Our Philosophy: To foster a better understanding and appreciation of ourselves, our neighbors, and our natural environment. We believe that living and working together with the outdoors as our classroom is an effective way to achieve this goal.

Our Staff: Our staff are carefully selected based on knowledge, experience and moral integrity. They are professionals committed to helping young people through positive learning experiences. Many are retirees with years of experience.

Our Program: (View our program list) We offer a wide variety of activity choices which the school may select from. We feel that any school subject can be enhanced by the outdoor classes that we offer. Students are taught in small groups of twelve to fourteen where the emphasis is on learning by doing. Students are given responsibilities and challenges that promote high self esteem, respect, and cooperation. Teachers and parent chaperons take an active role in supervision and participation in activities.

Our Facilities: We can accommodate groups up to 140. Facilities include an 1880's homestead, cabin, barn (the farm), gymnasium (the roof), sugar shed (maple syrup), Indian Village complete with teepee, long house & INIPI, turn of the century two room schoolhouse, high and low ropes course, climbing tower, and 400' zip-line. Delicious meals are served cafeteria style in our main lodge, and dormatory style housing make for a perfect setting for a comfortable stay in any season.  So come visit and see why "It's all part of the Wolverine experience"!!
