Manice Education Center

The Manice Education Center, located in the pristine wilderness of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts, delivers Christodora’s flagship programming to over 850 students per year.  Christodora is a 117 year old non-sectarian, non-profit organization offering high-quality environmental education and leadership training to motivated New York City youth.  
Working together as a supportive and energetic team of outdoor professionals, the Manice Education Center (MEC) leads small co-ed groups of 10-12 students on adventures to discover the surrounding wilderness filled with many streams, beaver ponds, waterfalls, and vistas overlooking New England’s mountain-scape.

The Manice Education Center seeks staff who have an adventurous spirit, have a willingness to learn, have a passion for the outdoors, and enjoy connecting with urban youth.   MEC programs offer low challenge course and teambuilding initiatives, night hikes, extended day trips into the 14,000 acres of surrounding state forests, explorations of aquatic and forest animals and eco-systems, greenhouse and gardening programs, and campfire programs for each group of campers.  Summer programs include backpacking and canoeing expeditions in Southern New England and Eastern New York.
