Outdoor Wilderness Leaders “The OWL’S”
OWL’s Brief History Lesson
OWL’s started in 1979. It has been teaching the next generation of leaders since that time at WEU. Members need to be invited to join, if a camper receives 3 recommendations from staff, administration during camp they are eligible to join for the following year as a fledging OWL. After one successful year they become an OWL. OWL’s have Backpacked all over New England, rode their bikes to Pennsylvania, New York, Maine & New Brunswick Canada. They have Scuba dove in the Bahamas and Curacao. In addition they have assisted WEU in leading thousands of participants in many different adventure experiences. Many OWL’s grow to become Wilderness Experiences Unlimited Summer Camp staff. As the confidence, certifications and leadership ability improves this is a logical step for some OWL’s.
