“Great retreat place!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

PEEC is dedicated to sustaining the environment of the Pocono area, with great education and nature programs. I was there as a director with Neat Retreats, we stayed in the exclusive Yurt Village, the award winning dining hall was able to accommodate all special nutrition requests, and the Nature Center provided us with an excellent spot for YOGA. Thank you, PEEC, we will be back...

“Great Place For Kids”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

The center has a museum for kids where they can climb into a eagle nest and go into a beaver dam. There are plenty of trails to walk including a fossil trail that my grandchildren love. They also have great programs throughout the year.

“Great Venue for Scouting Events!”
Reviewed 11 January 2013 via mobile

Just spent a relaxing and educational weekend at PEEC with about fifty Girl Scouts, learning winter survival skills! The education director, Allison, is knowledgable and very engaging with kids and adults! The lodges on site are clean and well equipped. The food at the mess hall is simple but plentiful. Looking for next winter's 'Expert' level winter survival training!
