The core objective of the Wilderness Risk Management Conference (WRMC) is to offer an outstanding educational experience to help you mitigate the risks inherent in exploring, working, teaching, and recreating in wild places.
Join us October 18-22, for the 28th (and second online) annual conference!
Attend the WRMC to gain practical risk management skills, network with others in the industry, share field and administrative techniques, and help develop risk management standards for the outdoor adventure and education industries.Contact WRMC
We send employees to the WRMC to keep our risk management minds primed and awake, to keep us aware of any new research or standards that are emerging in the field, and to network with folks doing similar work to our own. We go to the WRMC to share experiences and resources, and to have some fun!Julie Barnes Marin Academy
As a busy adventure education administrator, the WRMC is the cornerstone of my year. It is a place where colleagues and competitors gather to compare notes and ask the hard questions. By coming together, we make everyone stronger.Brendan Madden Outward Bound Canada
Risk is an unavoidable and also essential element of outdoor pursuits and adventure programming. For 25 years the WRMC has been the nexus for program administrators and practitioners to gather and share practices, discuss important issues, and learn from experts.Drew Leemon NOLS
Coming from Colombia, the WRMC provided me an opportunity to understand that in the face of our worst case scenario, we had an opportunity to not only grow as an individual program but also commit to working with other programs in Colombia. Participating in the WRMC and seeing NOLS working with Outward Bound and SCA helped me identify that one of the most important areas that we can work on is building a risk management community in our industry.Carolina Porras López Bluefields
Make sure you bring a blank notebook and a full pen! I still have all my notes from the sessions I’ve attended at the WRMC and continue to reference them and draw on the knowledge I gained to improve my program’s risk management practices.Kathleen Floberg YMCA Camp Widjiwagan
