Breckenridge, Colo., June 10, 2019 – After a 3-year, $2 million capital campaign comes to a close, Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) looks to show off its new digs with a Grand Opening Celebration and Open House on Saturday, June 15th from 1 pm to 4 pm at 524 Wellington Road in Breckenridge. The core project of the campaign was a complete remodel and update of the administrative and logistics center, including critically-needed seasonal staff housing, upgraded administrative offices, and improved warehousing for outdoor adaptive equipment.
From 1 pm to 4 pm, all guests will have the chance to tour the new facility, learn more about BOEC, and take part in a celebratory toast at the 3 p.m. unveiling of the donor wall recognizing those that made all this possible. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
Established in 1976, BOEC is one of the oldest four-season adaptive outdoor educational organizations in North America and is a leader in innovative outdoor education curriculum, serving people with diverse abilities and special needs. Upgrades to BOEC HQ and Logistics center completed during this project will allow BOEC to meet the growing demand for increased program capacity.
“I am overwhelmed at the resources our community donated to the Campaign for the reconstruction of the Wellington headquarters, including Town of Breckenridge, Rockridge Building Company, Custom Mountain Architects, Columbine Hills Concrete and so many others,” said Tim Casey, BOEC Chairman of the Board (2010-2018). “It is our generous and committed donors who make what the BOEC does possible year after year and I am grateful to all of those who help the BOEC to continue to touch so many lives through our winter and summer programs.”
