The Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is located in northeastern Pennsylvania, within the boundaries of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (DWGNRA). PEEC has been an independent residential environmental education center since 1972, serving a national and international community of students, teachers, adult learners and professionals.

PEEC offers a variety of programs throughout the year bringing national leaders in education, natural history, nature studies, ecology and outdoor/environmental education to PEEC for intimate learning experiences. PEEC also sponsors professional development institutes for teachers and educators in the tri-state area (PA, NY, NJ) on a yearly basis. The majority of these Institutes offer Intermediate Units for in-service credit for participating teachers.

PEEC’s programs are individually designed to meet the specific needs of each participating group including: school groups of all ages, scouts, youth groups, educators, special interest groups and families. All programs are cooperatively designed with participating agencies. PEEC staff is often called upon to design and implement programs that are beyond the scope of existing activities in order to meet the special needs of visitors.

  • Peec is very good i went up their with my middle school last year and we had a great time, and got time to hang out with my friends without staff/teachers asking too many questions thank you peec -Sebastian Munoz
  • PEEC was so much fun! We went as a school trip enjoyed your trip. The Yurt it's very very nice and cozy. And the people at PEEC were very kind and helpful to us. The hikes were very challenging but they were a lot of fun too. I would really like to come back one day. The staff is amazing and very kind . They were also very organized with dinner lunch and breakfast the food was absolutely amazing. I loved canoeing that was also another fun thing to do. There were so many options . Peak was very organized and make sure we put everything where it was supposed to go plate switch plates cups and cups and compost where it is supposed to go. It taught me to be more dinner and I like saying the recyclable plastic. Thank you Carrean and Alexa for helping us on our hike we had so much fun!!!
  • LOVED my hike ! Some parts were challenging but over all it was a GREAT hike. Totally worthy of 5 stars
  • Great hiking trails, regular outdoor activities and awesome programs for school kids.
  • Great cabins and the activities were never boring. My favorite was orienteering as well as canoeing. LOVED IT!!! My dad went to a similar place when he was younger and told me all about it. I was exited and it turned out being exactly what he told me it was going to be like. #peechype
