Brookville Outdoor and Environmental Education Center
Centrally located in Nassau County, this former NIKE Missile Base provides a remote setting for a variety of Nassau BOCES programs. This outdoor classroom is comprised of 20 acres and provides visitors with the opportunity to enjoy our adventure education, homestead ecology, and ecology @ Brookville programs.
Adventure education brings participants together as they navigate a series of field challenges and our challenge course. Participants learn how to work as a team, develop communication skills, and find confidence. Our social studies and homestead ecology programs trasnsport students to the colonial era as they learn about the daily lives of colonial children through hand-on exploration. Ecology @ Brookville is designed to build a connection with the natural world.
"Our trip to Brookville is always excellent. Students say it is the best trip they have ever been on and I enjoy observing and learning about my students." ~ Bellmore Gr. 6 TeacherWant to learn more about the history of our site? Click on the link: "Growing Pumpkins Where Missiles Grew"
