Join us for an Incredible Learning Expedition

Research indicates that outdoor and experiential education positively impacts participants. By engaging our participants, clients and students in meaningful ways, we can help improve memory, fight depression and lower blood pressure. And while connection with each other and the world around us is critical to individual health and wellness, it similarly affects teams, organizations and communities.

That’s why the 2019 AORE-AEE Conference is intentionally designed to deliver diverse and inclusive learning and networking opportunities focused on health and wellness to nearly 1,200 outdoor and experiential education professionals who collectively design and deliver these dynamic experiences 365 days a year.

And while the care, safety, success, and well-being of participants will be a central theme, just as important is our own health and wellness and that of the communities in which we practice. It’s the reason your flight attendant urges you to put your Oxygen mask on before assisting others.

This conference experience, much like the experiences we create for our students and clients, will provide attendees with countless opportunities to lead, follow, experiment, innovate, explore and grow both personally and professionally as we reflect on the impact of our work on the ecosystem of life.



The magnitude of the conference was quite impactful. I have never attended such a large gathering before. It's quite inspiring to think everyone in attendance is striving to change the world in a positive way through experiential education.

“This conference did an excellent job at helping me feel excited to go back to work: connecting with this many people doing great work was excellent.”

“I am more aware of what is happening in this field and the many subcultures that are a part of the bigger picture. I feel more confident as a result of putting various strategies into practice in a non-threatening (in fact, very encouraging!) environment.”

“I’ve been in the industry for 6 years but this is the first time I’ve attended a conference and I feel like I truly found ‘my people’.”
