A word from past guests:

“Our school has used the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center for an overnight retreat multiple times and the children, as well as the adults, have chosen to return. The accommodations are splendid: comfortable, inviting, well-kept, and safe. The National Park is a beauty. The staff has always been friendly and helpful from the moment we signed up to after the event was over. It’s only a half-hour from our school, which makes the bus trip easy. We have already signed up for next year!
