Explore the Great Outdoors at the Green Chimneys Clearpool Campus

Green Chimneys’ Clearpool Campus is a premier outdoor education center and recreation facility for learning and discovery. Located on 350 acres of natural woodlands, Clearpool offers an array of year-round education and adventure programs, seasonal activities, summer camp, and facilities for day or overnight school field trips, community groups and anyone who wants to experience nature in a unique setting for year-round environmental exploration.

Countless ecological resources and extensive wildlife make Clearpool a dynamic environmental education classroom, retreat, conference center, and conservation site for all ages. Protected woodlands include over five miles of forest trails, a natural lake, marsh, wetland, and extensive stream system, providing multiple habitats for a diverse population of plants, birds, and animals.

Our Clearpool campus also features a New York State Model Forest. Clearpool Model Forest is the fourth such piece of land established in and around the New York City Watershed to promote effective forest management and environmental stewardship practices that are compatible with water quality protection.
