What People are Saying

I strongly encourage all youth organization leaders to plan a trip to the Hazel Outdoor Discovery Center. There is no better place to encourage youth fellowship and appreciation for the outdoors than the HODC.
- Martin Hutchison
- Pastor, Community of Joy Church

With competition from television, video games, and the internet, we need places like the Hazel Outdoor Discovery Center to turn kids on to nature. The HODC is your kids' cure for nature deficit disorder.
- Carrie Samis
- Delmarva Environmental Educators Network

Richard Hazel has always been a friend of scouting. The Hazel Outdoor Discovery Center is a natural tribute to Mr. Hazel's love for children, scouting, and the outdoors.
- Kevin Les Callette
- Field Director, Boy Scouts of America

Teachers need outdoor classrooms to make nature come alive for students. The Hazel Outdoor Discovery Center is a wonderful field trip destination for local schools.
