This year’s conference will take place in Boston, MA October 5-7

Since the very first gathering in 1994, the Wilderness Risk Management Conference has grown to be an annual focal point where the leaders in wilderness risk management convene to share practices, challenges, emerging issues, and industry-leading expertise. The conference serves as a unique intersection between field staff, program administrators, insurance representatives, legal counsel, wilderness medicine practitioners, and other stakeholders in outdoor programming.

SCA is proud to be one the co-sponsors of this conference, along with Outward Bound and the National Outdoor Leadership School.

Conference Goals

  • Educate wilderness practitioners on risk management and practical skills.
  • Share field and administrative techniques in risk management.
  • Influence risk management standards in the wilderness adventure and education industry
  • Provide a networking and professional development forum with today’s leaders in the field
