East Campus | Springfield College

The Adventure Begins Here

Woven into the rich and long history of Springfield College is the East Campus Outdoor Learning Center experience. The Southwestern-style building facility serves as the hub for the College’s full complement of adventure-based programming and curriculum.

On this rustic landscape, thousands of students and community members alike have been changed from within. They’ve discovered what it means to lead, to grow in service, to feel whole.

We invite you to experience the transformation.

The Perfect Backdrop

East Campus is set on 57 acres of forestland and is bordered by a mile of shorefront on Watershops Pond. It’s the perfect location for a restful retreat or the scene of a challenge—or some combination of the two.

Our diverse standard and custom adventure programs are known as the most valuable resource for team-building, managerial training, and goal-oriented growth. Groups of all kinds can relax, bond, and build team morale and spirit here.

Junior high, high school, and college students from across the Northeast take advantage of our highly regarded programs.

We welcome small to large organizations, social service agencies, church groups, and other community groups. 

Let us help you build a team or create a memory.
