What is WVAEPE?
This conference began in 1969. It was the brainchild of Dr. Alan Canonico
who was the Director of Physical Education for the West Virginia State
Department of Education. In the 1980's, the state decided to no longer fund the
conference so the West Virginia Association of Elementary Physical Education was
formed by a group of teachers. Those same teachers are still actively involved
in the planning of the Camp Caesar Conference.
The unique thing about
this conference is it is planned by teachers for teachers. The conference is
totally self-supporting. All operating cost for this conference comes from the
registration fees charged. They receive absolutely NO money from any other
sources and no member of the planning board receives a salary. As a matter of
fact, they pay, just as you do, to come to the conference!
conference has another unique feature. Unlike other conferences where you sit
and take notes while listening to a lecture, this conference is 100%
participation. Many well-known presenters have been to Camp Caesar: Hap
Palmer, Ambrose Brazelton, Rudy Franklin, Rudy Benton, Rich Cendali and the
Skip-Its, as well as many others.
Come, as others have for 40+ years to
find out what makes this conference a "One of a Kind"!
