Adventure Education Programming 

Want to further your knowledge in the outdoor field and get more hands-on experience? If so, a workshop or clinic might be just the thing for you!

Clinics are shorter than workshops and can be expected to last about one hour to a half day, depending on the activity. Workshops are more in-depth than clinics and are usually one to two days in length.

Please email the OERC at oerc@winona.edu to schedule.
