The Canadian Student Outdoor Education Conference (aka The Horwood Conference) is an annual event organized by and for students studying outdoor and environmental education, health and physical education, outdoor recreation, adventure leadership, experience-based learning and/or related fields. It is hosted at Queen’s University each year and held on a weekend in February. Graduate, Undergraduate, B.Ed and College students attend the Horwood Conference to present oral or poster contributions on various research topics related to outdoor education, as well as share games and learning activities, lead a variety of workshops, and attend special invited lectures.
