Advanced Camps

When navigating rapids, you should never go at the same speed as the current; otherwise, it decides our course for us! How can we stay in control and strive despite the surging rapids of the Covid River?

Join us on November 13, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. (ET)! Let’s join our strengths and discuss how we can overcome the challenges we are facing with COVID.

During this gathering, participants will be put into breakout rooms to tackle more specific issues regarding these topics:

  • Post-Secondary Outdoor Programs in a COVID-19 era: Finding ways for post-secondary teachers and professors to keep going outdoors with their students.
  • Outdoor Learning in Schools: Bringing students outside is an important mechanism to keep them and their families safe. How can we ensure that outdoor education is part of provincial and local strategies in education?
  • Special Risk Insurance for Led Outdoor Activity: The high price of insurance is a problem for outdoor programs. Now is the time to start fixing the problem. Much progress has been made this summer in Manitoba. We need to gather specific information about how insurance creates barriers for your programs and pool our knowledge of existing and possible solutions.
  • Living with Uncertainty: The pandemic has caused many transformations and uncertainty is here to remain. Join this breakout room to find support within the community.  By supporting each other, we can get to the other side stronger.
  • Focusing on the Upcoming Winter Season: For those offering outdoor activities this winter, come and discuss how to run covid-appropriate winter programs, share services that are successful, and support your programs through the winter season
  • Using Winter Time to Prepare for Spring and Summer 2021: With the winter months coming, those who are in the off-season have a chance to prepare for spring and summer. Come and discuss what can be done to ensure led outdoor activity programs can be ready as soon as the warmer days come!

Just like the Summit gathering in Gatineau, these Advanced Camps are meant to be active and participatory processes. Please join the call 10 minutes in advance and come ready to be part of this problem-solving process.
