Description

The 2017 Summit! Growing Together

At our 4th annual Summit, join your community of peers, new and old, to connect and learn, share information, build best practices, work together on metrics and evaluation, and dig deep on the programs and practices that you deliver everyday.

Together, we are building community capacity to connect young people to nature.

Full Summit Registration Includes: Meals from Tuesday dinner through Friday lunch; Comfortable, dorm style sleeping on site.

Leading Outdoors

Key Topics:

  • Course Curricula: From day-hiking to multi-day backpacking courses, Network Member Programs are using scenarios, direct instruction, team building, debriefs and more. Sessions will address a number of curricula questions in order to illuminate best practices and allow participants to maximize learning others in the field.

  • Gear Management: Bay Area Wilderness Training is just beginning the process of testing and implementing MyTurn - a lending library software platform that has everything we'll need to increase efficiency for program staff and Gear Library users. Our goal is to roll out a plan for you to implement (as you are ready) the software to provide real-time gear availability information to your users.

  • OEN's Strategy and Growth: We are the Network, and as such, we'll discuss our strategic plan and its implications regarding the support we're able to provide, what's next in terms of our plan for new members and how we best work together to make sure that everyone benefits from being part of our national level community. Your input is invaluable...you ARE the Network!

  • Partnership: This year, we will have special guests, senior staff from the YMCA, discussing how to break the code to partner with the extremely diffuse, ubiquitous youth serving organization, that stands to both support and benefit from our work. Much more in this critical area of work.
