Youth and Community Groups

New England Outdoor Center welcomes school, youth and community groups to our four-season resort for team-building, educational and outdoor adventure trips. We can customize activities, dining and lodging to meet the needs of any size group.

Also, NEOC provides a discounted rate for many non profit organizations. Please inquire when booking to see if your organization qualifies.


You can learn a lot in a classroom, but at NEOC we believe that learning is enhanced with hands-on memorable activities in the Maine outdoors. Bring students to study glacial geology of the region, the plant biodiversity or physics of a fast-moving river.

If your school is looking for a great field trip or an overnight/extended stay at an adventure resort, we have the experience, knowledge and great staff to make it happen.

Playing games at our resort or whitewater rafting, boating, swimming, fishing and hiking are just a few of the many activities that will stimulate kids to discover their passion for the outdoors.

Picture your child camping with friends and toasting marshmallows by the fire while they create childhood memories that can last a life time.

Coordinated by one of our seasoned Youth Group Specialists or Licensed Maine Guides, our Adventure Programs offer a stunning array of activities designed to inform and educate young adults in a safe, rewarding environment. NEOC is the perfect environment to build confidence, life skills and camaraderie that will help youths reach their full potential.

Community non-profits and organizations

When you’re familiar with coming together for a common purpose, you’ll thrive on the teamwork that’s involved in one of our whitewater rafting trips or enjoy the challenge of trekking up Maine’s highest peak, Katahdin.

If you are a local organization looking to have your members take a break from the same old meeting setting, NEOC is the perfect spot to stimulate the mind. If it’s a strategic planning session, milestone celebration, annual meeting, teambuilding retreat or just a fun adventure outing, we can customize the activities, lodging and dining around your group’s needs.

We regularly work with:

  • Church Groups
  • Recreational Clubs
  • Non-profit Interest Groups

And don’t forget the winter months! During the winter, we offer great rates on cozy winter lodging with activities that include snowmobiling, snowshoeing, fishing and more. You provide the group, we’ll provide the fun!

Contact us today to arrange an outing for your group or organization.
