For the second year in a row, we are pleased to be sending our Assistant Program Director, Avery, to the upcoming Association for Challenge Course Technologies Conference in 2013! This year's conference is expected to draw hundreds of professionals nationally and internationally, from owners, operators, and builders of courses to facilitators, teachers, camp professionals, and more! With over 100 sessions to chose from presented by many of the world's industry leaders, Avery is expecting to come away from the conference with immediately relevant information, tools, and skills to use here at NOVA as well as the other five 4-H Centers statewide.
