Winter Internship Program
What is the BOEC?
Located in Breckenridge, Colorado, the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to expand the potential of people with disabilities and special needs through meaningful, educational, and inspiring outdoor experiences. The BOEC began back in 1976 with a staff that consisted of volunteers only, gear that came from their closets, and food that was donated or provided by the clients. The BOEC has come a long way since then. The BOEC offers Adaptive Skiing and Snowboarding, Wilderness Courses (on-site as well as mobile courses), Professional Challenge Courses, and a unique Internship Program. Situated on 39 acres, the BOEC boasts a climbing wall, a high ropes course, high and low team initiatives, rafts, canoes, sea kayaks, cabins, teepees, and much more, as resources for experiential education.
Extraordinary things happen here at the BOEC. A man with quadriplegia finds the courage and patience to take on the high ropes course, a woman who is blind feels the thrill of carving down some fresh powder, a group of teenage boys learn what it means to work hard as they set fence ties on a desert farm in Utah - these are mere glimpses of what happens at the BOEC. For more than 30 years, the BOEC has been changing lives, or more accurately, showing people that they have the power within themselves to change their own lives.
Becoming a BOEC Intern:
The BOECs Internship Program is designed to provide opportunities for individuals interested in Outdoor/ Experiential Education, Therapeutic Recreation, and Recreation Management to gain professional experience and knowledge in this growing field.
