American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC.
The two board aspects of outdoor education considered in this document are education in the outdoors, using the natural environment as a laboratory for learning, and education for the outdoors, with a focus on teaching skills and appreciations for outdoor recreation. Conference procedures, keynote addresses, current practices, contributions to general education, and directions for the future are reported. Recommendations are presented for 6 discussion areas: (1) teacher and leadership preparation; (2) facilities and resources; (3) school camping; (4) older youth work-learn camps; (5) curriculum and programs; and (6) research and evaluation. Responses to an individual judgment census and an appendix, which contains a copy of the program and a list of the planning committee and participants, conclude the document. (SW)
