Welcome to Our Facility
Everything at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center at Placid Harbor from the tastefully-appointed dormitories, well-lighted and airy classrooms and gracious dining area, to the full range of recreational facilities for use during off-hours is designed with you, the member, in mind. Nature's serenity, professional instructors using the latest in techniques and equipment, students eager to learn, all combine into an exemplary model of labor education.
At the Winpisinger Center, our members participate in a unique kind of learning program. Here, the emphasis is on shared experience. Discussion in the classroom and around the campus during breaks fosters a unique atmosphere for learning.
