Where the Adventure is Worthwhile!
The Outdoor Wilderness Learning (OWL) Center is 800 acres of rolling hills, beautiful facilities, and programs designed to encourage teamwork, family bonds, character development, education, and fun!
We seek to:
- Enrich the lives and relationships of families and various groups.
- Provide an atmosphere consistent with building confidence, self-respect, leadership skills, and character.
- Educate through experiential processes and outdoor activities.
- Encourage bonds within the community.
- Provide programs and facilities that can be utilized to positively impact people’s lives.
Originally designed to benefit the youth of the Louisiana Methodist Children’s Home with therapeutic and recreational programs, the OWL Center also serves churches, schools, businesses, community groups, and families.
Dynamic activities, including team building, self-esteem skills, and family strengthening experiences help accomplish the overall mission of the OWL Center, which is Building Relationships.
The Outdoor Wilderness Learning Center is a ministry of Louisiana United Methodist Children & Family Services, Inc.
