About the Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center:
Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center is located in Parkton, Maryland, just twenty-five minutes north of Baltimore City and 30 minutes south of York, Pennsylvania.
As an educational non-profit organization, Genesee Valley has been serving children and adults for over thirty years as one of the region’s top team building facilities. We provide high quality team building programs that allow companies, classrooms, and teams to function more cohesively. Our Experiential Education Program utilizes our challenge course to actively focus on developing improved communication, cooperation, healthy risk-taking, leadership, trust, persistence and creative problem solving skills. There is more than just ‘fun’ to our program; our facilitators ‘debrief’ participants after activities and use the course to discuss ways to meet everyday life head on. Participants grow through both verbal discussions and physical challenges.
In addition to our innovative and unique team building programs (with an overnight camping option) we also offer Spring Break Camp, Summer Camp, off-site team building programs (year-round), and off-site rock climbing expeditions. Genesee Valley’s Summer Camp is a day camp that provides a great summer adventure for students which includes activities such as canoeing, kayaking, swimming, archery, fishing, arts & crafts, and ropes course. To further assist parents, we also provide daily transportation to and from Timonium, Towson, and Baltimore.
Our 150-acre facility is also host to lacrosse, soccer, and field hockey practices and tournaments, trail runs, and family or corporate picnics. With all that our programs and property have to offer, we serve nearly 15,000 individuals annually.
As an educational non-profit organization, we are very intentional about utilizing our course for group and personal development, rather than an amusement park or “pay-to-play” experience. Before arriving, we encourage visitors to familiarize themselves with our philosophy and mission; we’ve found that groups have the greatest success when all participants are clear on expectations for the day.
