Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference

March 25-27 2022

West Virginia University Outdoor Education Center

Connecting Health to Nature

The Region and Professional Group Conferences are aimed at furthering experiential education in its many applications. They seek to strengthen the Association and the field by bringing together its practitioners, supporters – members and non-members – to work, talk, network, play, and learn together in a unique environment that is solely devoted to these objectives and thoughtfully designed for these purposes. 

The Mid-Atlantic Region encompasses the following U.S. states: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and Washington D.C. Our region unifies individuals from a variety of fields: including schools and colleges, museums, therapeutic recreation centers, camps and conference centers, and outdoor recreation venues.

We, as the Mid-Atlantic Region, strive to promote and support the vision of AEE. This vision connects a global community of educators and practitioners, and it expands their capacity to enrich lives through experiential education. AEE is currently leading the way in experiential education nationwide and they will need our continuous support and efforts in making a difference in the lives of many.

We are excited to offer the “pay what you can” pricing model for our regional conference again this year. This model aligns with our values of equity, inclusion and community. Please consider the value you expect this conference will provide to you, and the value a dollar has in your life as you decide what to pay. Based on our best estimates, the recommended amounts for conference registration are $140 for students/volunteers/presenters, $180 for professional members, and $220 for professional non-members. Please keep in mind all of the proceeds go directly to support AEE.

The Association for Experiential Education is a 501(c) (3), tax-exempt organization. We would greatly appreciate your help! This is a prime opportunity to introduce yourself and market your products or services to some of the most influential people in the field, including: administrators, educators, outdoor adventure programmers, therapeutic programmers, camp directors, school districts and social agencies. Your marketing effort and dollars will reach individuals and organizations committed to the development, practice and evaluation of experiential learning in all settings.

We are excited to offer two options to showcase your business/organization and network with conference attendees. Traditional exhibit tables offering information about your organization or business will again be conveniently located in the Berkshire Outdoor Center Dining Hall. We will also have a new option to choose a Vendor Exhibitor Table in a lockable space within the dining room. Vendor Exhibitors are welcome to offer products, books or services to conference attendees and these materials may be locked in the vendor room outside of vendor hours.

Conference Exhibitor rates are $75 for an Exhibitor table
