Texas Experiential Resources Association (TERA) is a statewide, professional organization that promotes experiential learning through the use of Challenge Courses, play therapy, and recreational therapy. Established in 1989, TERA has helped professionals network with one another and share knowledge on best practices and ethical standards in a variety of fields. Each spring, we host an annual conference that offers quality, educational workshops. TERA is an approved CEU provider for LPC and SW credits through Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors and State Board of Examiners for Social Workers. TERA is also a CPE provider for the State Board of Education. Although we love to laugh hard and play hard, our main priority is to equip others to be the very best in their field by providing unique experiential opportunities. So take a look around our website to learn more about us…and come join the TERA Family!
We are excited to announce that TERA’s 30th Annual Conference will take place at Frontier Camp in Grapeland, TX! This will be a fantastic opportunity for re-connecting with TERA members of the past, meeting present members and introducing members of the future to our great organization!
