Garst, Barry; Scheider, Ingrid; Baker, Dwayne
Journal of Experiential Education, v24 n1 p41-49 Spr 2001
A study examined the impact of outdoor adventure trips on 37 urban adolescents' self-perception. Results from pretest, posttest, and 4-month followup surveys and interviews indicate that participants' self-perceptions of social acceptance and behavioral conduct improved immediately after the trip, and that some behavioral conduct impacts remained 4 months later.
