Oftentimes, people are yearning for more information on specific aspects of outdoor leadership. The guidebook below is meant to be used in conjunction with the knowledge acquired through a Field Leader course.
This report presents the trends and challenges present within the national outdoor community at the mid-point of the Canadian Outdoor Summit project. The information present in this report was compiled in the fall of 2020. Final redaction was completed in March 2021.
This chart, created by Christian Mercure at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, is intended to help outdoor program managers ensure they have considered all important aspects in their program design. The OCC does not officially endorse the information found within this document. They are provided for your information only.
The Certificate in Outdoor Education (COE) is a program for teachers of Outdoor Education designed to enhance both skill development and teaching strategies associated with the delivery of these modules of the Public School Program. The COE program has generously shared a plethora of templates that they use for a wide variety of outings. We are aware that the links in this section are broken and are working to have that fixed.
