Adventures in Outdoor Education

Search Mosinee Wisconsin

The first Wisconsin Adventure in Outdoor Education workshop was held in May 1980. Since that time, teachers, program leaders, administrators and adventure education practitioners have made the workshop an annual trek. Typically 100 people attend each year to build, renew and share expertise to enhance curricular/program offerings. A highly trained staff leads sessions aimed at hands-on experiences immediately transferable to on-going programs.

The workshop offers both undergraduate and graduate credits. 1-3 credits can be earned by engaging in the workshop and then creating teaching packages that can be implemented upon return to the work setting. Each student designs their own project, sets their own goals and identifies expected outcomes. Practical, immediately useful material and curriculum development is the focus of student projects. The coursework is handled through the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point School of Health Promotion and Human Development.
