The WEA-CCO Connection
Harbison, Paul; Guilleux, Francois
Journal of the Wilderness Education Association, v20 n2 p13-14 Fall 2008
The partnership between the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) and the Wilderness Education Association (WEA) grew out of one of the author's own journey (Paul's) to be part of the WEA. In 1983, early in his work with the CCO, the author read a magazine article that Paul Petzoldt wrote about the three goals of an outdoor experience--safety, enjoyment, and conservation of the wilderness. These three values deeply resonated with his own values. It was in the article that Paul Petzoldt spoke of the WEA. He was intrigued and wanted to learn more about it. In this article, the authors describe how they integrated the WEA curriculum into their own. They have developed their own course curriculum using the WEA model of engaging students through its curriculum. The role that the WEA curriculum plays in their work is important and they appreciate its value and the opportunity to be part of the overall mission of the organization.
