Northeast Collegiate Outdoor Skills Symposium

May 21-25, 2012
Green Mountain College, Poultney, VT

Sponsored by Eastern Mountain Sports Schools.


NCOSS has been postponed indefinitely. We hope to hold again in the future.

The Northeast Collegiate Outdoor Skill Symposium offers skill development and certification courses for students, faculty, and staff of collegiate outdoor programs. It's our hope that through this symposium we can develop community among northeastern outdoor educators, create a collaborative learning environment among all participants, and have a cost effective avenue for professional and student development.
