Kemper Outdoor Education Center

A wedding setting

The grounds at the Kemper Outdoor Education Center are available to rent for weddings, picnics, reunions, birthday parties and pool parties. Rental areas include the butterfly garden, shelter house and 15 foot by 30 foot in-ground pool with change house. There is no lighting on the property so all events must conclude before dusk.

The Gardens

The Kemper Gardens (water gardens and butterfly gardens) are available for rent for wedding ceremonies. The home on the property is available for the bridal party to use for dressing but is not open to guests.


$700 for the first four hours plus $100 for each additional hour. If you plan to use the in-ground pool, there is a four-hour minimum at $50 per hour and a $20 per hour lifeguard fee. Your 50% deposit will hold and confirm your date.
