Student Experiences: OEE Field Camp is a Life-Changing Experience

November 15, 2018
By: Christopher Mangaser

My name is Christopher Mangaser and I am an Outdoor and Experiential Education Teaching Candidate here at Queens University. I have previously attended the University of Ontario Institute of Technology taking a Criminology Degree with sights on becoming a police officer. However, working with many youth organizations, I found myself wanting to become a teacher. I’ve always done things differently because I did not want to be like everyone else.

Finding the OEE (Outdoor and Experiential Education) program was a jackpot because it was a cross between my two passions, working with youth and the outdoors. So here it is, the beginning of how I fell in love with the OEE program. How a boy from the Durham Region came to Kingston, wanting to become something better than what I left behind.
