Environmental, Conservation and Outdoor Education Expedition (ECOEE)
The Environmental, Conservation and Outdoor Education Expedition (ECOEE) program is a semester-long field studies program offered through the Department of Recreation, Park and tourism Administration at Western Illinois University. Developed in 1976, the ECOEE program supports professional preparation in outdoor leadership through experiential education. While prerequisite planning courses take place in the spring semester, the actual field studies expedition occurs during the fall semester. The field studies experience focuses on principles of outdoor leadership and teaching, wilderness travel and minimum impact camping skills, outdoor adventure recreation, and environmental education and interpretation.
The Environmental, Conservation & Outdoor Education Expedition (ECOEE) program is a unique, semester-long field studies program offered through the Department of RPTA.
The American Camp Association serves as an informal and "unofficial" communication link between persons seeking jobs in organized camps and camp directors seeking staff applicants.
