|About This Site
This site was originally created as a personal site for the author. It has since expanded to be one of the official websites for Outdoor Education Laboratory. It serves as a central information point for the campsite for both public use and for staff use. Staff applies for positions and uses resources within the protected staff only section and the public uses the site for general information and initial stages of camper enrollment. Actual camper
enrollment is provided by PeopleIDSoftware.com which is another website created and owned by the same author of the OutdoorEducationLaboratory.com. The two websites work together and were built to compliment each other. PeopleIDSoftware.com was developed for multiple applications and to accommodate the possibility of more than one official OEL website.
The majority of the pictures found on this site have been taken by the author of this site. The author retains full copyright on all pictures and any use of the pictures requires his permission.

If you do happen to find a picture which you believe positively identifies your child, please let the author know immediately so the picture can be
removed. Pictures on this site are to give a sample of activities while out at camp for everyone to enjoy.
