Adventure Education Conference Virginia 2014

I was super pleased to travel to and present at the first inaugural Adventure Education Conference in Virginia!  Great attendance I must say too....over 75 folks at this first conference with representation from guide services, colleges and universities as well as camp professionals.  It is great for us to remember as Mark Wagstaff, Professor at Radford University put it, "We've got to get back to sharing and collaborating regionally in our field of Outdoor Education, this is where we came from and it's been since the 80's that we have held this kind of forum in Virginia!"  

As a presenter, I was able to share my 2014 Updates on Drowning Prevention and Management for Outdoor Trip Leaders. Thanks to those who attended and participated with my presentation. Get ready to mark your calendar for the 2015 AE Conference next November in Appomattox, Virginia - see you there!
