Agapé Center for Environmental Education

ACE Education seeks to build awareness and appreciation in North Carolina school students and guests through hands-on experiences aimed to encourage responsible decision-making and care of the natural world.

Our goal is to enable teachers and students to meet the goals of the NC Essential Standards for Science and Social Studies.

ACE Education experiences make use of experiential learning – proven to be the most effective method of education.

Activities include those developed by our Environmental Educator, as well as others from Project Learning Tree, Project WET, Project WILD, NC Catch and other nationally known environmental education curricula.

Located on 624 acres of beautiful rolling hills, cascading streams, and diverse forests, Camp Agapé is located just 50 minutes from downtown Raleigh. This unique and secluded setting, provides a special "time and place-apart" that lends itself perfectly to small group experiences.

“Awareness is becoming acquainted with environment, no matter where one happens to be.” ~ Sigurd Olson
