Mission Statement

The mission of the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center is to establish, perpetuate, and operate an outdoor learning center as a vehicle to enrich the lives and learning of children and citizens of our school district and community.

Description

The Seguin Outdoor Learning Center began with the dreams and imagination of Irma Lewis, a physical education teacher with a strong background in outdoor education.

Ms. Lewis developed and taught an outdoor education course at Seguin High School and saw the positive impact of the program on her students. Ms. Lewis believed that such a program, devoted completely to outdoor education, would make a difference in the lives of the young and young at heart. Eight years later Irma's dream became a reality.

Beginning with an initial donation of 23 acres from local resident Carla Blumberg in 1995, the Seguin Outdoor Learning Center has grown to over 115 acres. With incredible support from the community, the school district, local businesses, public and private foundations, and a legion of volunteers, the SOLC has provided the citizens of south central Texas with a multitude of recreational and educational opportunities.

In its first two years of business, the Texas Outdoor Education Association recognized the impact that the SOLC was having on local children and students. The SOLC was named the Outstanding Outdoor Education Program in the State of Texas in 1997.

That legacy continues at the SOLC today with quality programs and a beautiful setting. Our facility is a jewel where the entire community can enjoy the outdoors.
