The Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre (ELEEC) is located about 25 minutes north of Kingston in the Township of South Frontenac and is a focus for extension and outreach activities for the Queen’s University Biological Station (QUBS), and for the Department of Biology and the broader University community. QUBS has two campuses: Lake Opinicon, where most research and university-level teaching occurs, and ELEEC, which offers public and school outreach.

The ELEEC can accommodate up to 45 overnight visitors in 11 two-bedroom cabins and has a communal kitchen, but no cooking staff. ELEEC also hosts the Eco-Adventure Camp, an educational day camp program in July and August facilitated by undergraduate student counselors.
