  • Outdoor Adventure Center Snow Day Policy

    When Detroit Public Schools have a snow day, so does the Outdoor Adventure Center. If you have a field trip planned this winter, please check to see whether or not DPS has closed. If they have closed, so will the OAC. On non-school days, we would only close if it was indicated as necessary by the City of Detroit.
