We offer a distinct Christian Outdoor Education program in the foothills of Northeast Georgia. The campus located on 1100 acres, boasts of hills, streams, waterfalls (large and small), rock outcroppings, mountain laurel groves, beautiful flora and fauna. It is the perfect place for an outdoor program, with several national forests, whitewater rivers, mountains, and lakes within 30 minutes to an hour from the college. This is our backyard setting for many of the programs, adventures and trips within the OLE program.
The B.S. in OLE combines adventure, wilderness, camping, and environmental education into one unique program of study. Students will be able to research, design and carry-out outdoor education programs that will be safe, challenging and rewarding. Classes are taught in a distinctively Christian context, with an emphasis on integrating a Biblical worldview into classes and experiences.
