Outdoor Educators' Conference - Victoria
Christian Venues Association is delighted to be running conferences for Outdoor Professionals.
These conferences are targeted at CVA members who have either an interest in, or whose primary role is working in the design and delivery of adventure activities and experiences. These experiences could be site based or expedition based, the common link being the use of the outdoors as the teaching and communication platform.
CVA has initiated this conference because we believe that many of our members are offering these services to their clients and thus, will benefit from a conference where the primary focus is Outdoor Education.
The program has been designed to cater for both the experienced practitioner as well as the less experienced practitioner.
When: Wednesday August 23 - Friday August 25
Where: Belgrave Heights Convention Centre, 3 Convention Ave BELGRAVE HEIGHTS
Registration: Wednesday August 30, 1.00 - 1.30pm (Lunch not included on this day)
Close: With lunch at 12.30pm on Friday September 1
Members from South Australia & Tasmania are welcome to attend!
