Located in the 611-acre Pueblo Mountain Park in Beulah, an easy 25-minute drive west of Pueblo, Mountain Park Environmental Center (MPEC) is an award-winning education center that provides numerous opportunities for people to connect with Nature. The Mountain Park is a perfect outdoor facility so close to Pueblo – hiking trails, pine trees, wildlife, picnic sites, wildflowers, all in a beautiful and easily accessible natural mountain setting!
Along with comprehensive programs for schools, MPEC offers a variety of other recreation and education programs for people of all ages. MPEC’s Summer Camps provide children from kindergarten through high school age with life-changing summer experiences in the natural world. We offer day-camps as well as overnight camps, and all camps include round-trip transportation from Pueblo. Many of our camps spend time in the nearby San Isabel National Forest, and residential camps spend the night in the newly renovated Horseshoe Lodge, now known as the Horseshoe Lodge and Retreat Center. Scholarships are available for all of our camps!
Other programs include Nature Toddlers, Guided Hikes, Evening Yoga, Spring Break Camp, and many workshops and retreats on various topics. Lots more information about Mountain Park Environmental Center can be found at:https://hikeandlearn.org/
