I just wanted to connect directly with you about a new workshop we've created alongside the Outdoor Council of Canada. It's a one day (plus a 2 hour pre-course Zoom call) course on SUNDAY, April 16th.
We've put more info on social media BUT could you help us with 2 things?
1) Pass on this information to anyone in your networks. Social media, email, conversations, texts, etc.
2) Consider taking the workshop...we need feedback and insight. If you're receiving this email, I want to offer the price at $25 for you PERSONALLY to attend. That's 1/3rd the cost (normally $75).
MCA executive director Kim Scherger participated in this course in the fall and suggests at lease one of your camp staff members enroll.
Why are we offering this workshop? We understand that the OCC Field Leader certification course is long (2 full days) and can be expensive for educators and camp staff ($195). SO, this is to bridge that gap for half the duration and less than half the cost. THE BEST PART...if you want to take the full certification course with the OCC, this will count towards 8 credit hours with our instructors (Wilderland Adventure Company).
We're working really hard at making this training accessible for all educators...and beyond (we'll be offering a version of this directly for the summer camp sector too...in due time).
