A place to enjoy the great outdoors

Located on 1,500 wooded acres, the Yale Outdoor Education Center (OEC) is on the south shore of a pristine mile-long lake. There are cabins and campsites to rent, and visitors can hike, have a picnic,  boat, canoe, fish or swim. The OEC is located in East Lyme, Connecticut, just northwest of the town of Niantic and only 42 miles from New Haven.
