Reflections on the 2007 COEO Conference
Grimwood, Bryan
Pathways: The Ontario Journal of Outdoor Education, v20 n1 p29 Aut 2007
For the 2007 conference COEO aimed to harness enthusiasm for the recent research summary publication by using the report's title, "Reconnecting Children Through Outdoor Education," as the conference theme. Hosted by YMCA Wanakita in Haliburton on September 28-30, the event was situated in a camp-like setting, familiar to many long-serving members and a new retreat for others. Reflecting on the theme of the event, the author realized that "reconnecting children" does not necessarily equate to reconnecting those under a prescribed age. Reconnecting children refers to engaging the "child" that lives within us all with meaning, experience, community and the forces that sustain us. With that in mind, the author applauds the 2007 conference planning committee and attending COEO delegates for their hard work, enthusiasm and devotion to making this year's conference a success.
