Default Re: Outdoor Education

Outdoor education can be simply defined as experiential learning in, for, or about the outdoors. The term 'outdoor education', however, is used broadly to refer to a range of organized activities that take place in a variety of ways in predominantly outdoor environments.


Learn how to overcome adversity
Enhance personal and social development
Develop a deeper relationship with nature.

Outdoor education spans the three domains of self, others, and the natural world. The relative emphasis of these three domains varies from one program to another.

An outdoor education program can, for example, emphasize one (or more) of these aims to:

Teach outdoor survival skills
Improve problem solving skills
Reduce recidivism
Enhance teamwork
Develop leadership skills
Understand natural environments
Promote Spirituality

Outdoor education is...
interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary...an approach to achieving the goals and objectives of the curriculum.
- Hammerman, Hammerman & Hammerman, 1985


Increased self-concept such as independence, confidence, self-efficacy, and self understanding
Enhanced decision-making skills
General problem solving competencies
Better academic achievement
Increased ability to overcome challenges
Better social competence
Better communication skills
