Join us, just miles from the shores of the Apostle Islands, for the 20th Annual Student Outdoor Educators Conference Outdoor Apostles: Where Do We Go From Here?
The SOEC offers emerging outdoor education and recreation enthusiasts the opportunity to share, teach, and learn in a professional conference setting. Participate in outdoor educator skill development workshops and networking with other emerging professionals. SOEC draws students primarily from the Midwest region, with a variety of backgrounds, to share their experiences with the greater outdoor industry.
Many of the opportunities associated with the event are only open to conference registrants, but there are several opportunities open to the entire campus community. We would welcome you all to attend our Friday night film screening of 180 Degrees South: Conquerors of the Useless. This adventure documentary focuses on the journey of Jeff Johnson as he travels from California to Patagonia. The film emulates the 1968 trip made by Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins to Patagonia, but rather than by land, Jeff Johnson travels by sea from Mexico and south along the west coast of Chile. This film will be shown in the SOEI beginning at 7 pm.
Additionally we would invite you to participate in the adventure race Saturday Evening from 4pm to 5pm. For this event come with a team of 4-8 people to compete in a series of challenges related to outdoor skills.
