Adventure Experiences for Older Adults: Examining Current Practices.
Sugerman, Deborah
Journal of Experiential Education, v23 n1 p12-16 Jun 2000
A survey of 179 organizations offering outdoor adventure experiences for adults over 50 found strong growth in such programs. Offerings were typically low-level challenge activities, short-term summer-based, with educational goals; most participants were 60-69; course fees provided most funding; administrative practices varied; and research in outdoor adventure experiences for older adults was rare.
