The benefits of outdoor adventure activities have been highlighted in studies conducted all over the world. We’ve looked at research from reports compiled in the U.S., UK, Australia, Scotland, and more. There prove to be positive effects in the short term, as well as continued gains over time, in both children and adults.
As outdoor adventure insurance experts, we see it every day. Children who participate in outdoor activities develop a more positive attitude. By challenging themselves in a natural environment, they can build independence, self-confidence, and coping strategies. Group activities promote interpersonal and social skills, such as social communication skills and teamwork.
Without question, outdoor recreation provides an opportunity to increase quality of life and heighten social interaction. In adults, physical activity in the natural environment promotes greater well-being, and an increased ability to function better at work and home.
