The Council of Outdoor Educators of Ontario is excited to invite you to attend our Annual Conference being held at Glen Bernard Camp, located near the village of Sundridge in Ontario's beautiful Almaguin Highlands region, September 27 - 29, 2013. The 2013 COEO Conference Committee has been hard at work and plans are now complete for this year's conference. Our theme, "The Unconvention" is an attempt to breakaway from the usual conference format and do things a little bit differently. This year's conference will be comprised of four "mini conferences" or four separate conference streams and participants will have the option of taking part in one conference stream exclusively or bouncing between all four. This conference will also include many unconventional elements and surprises!

Conference streams include:

Forest Schools: Provisions for outdoor learning in the early years and beyond
Adventure Education: Guiding new perspectives
Storytelling: Making narrative an imperative in our professional practice
Fun & Games: From ecological simulations to everyday silliness

Please plan to join us as we explore new ideas and perspectives, learn and share best practices and refocus and rejuvenate for th year ahead! The full conference program has now been posted online. Visit the COEO website for all the details about this exciting upcoming event or see the attached Conference Brochure. Register today at
