Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, v2 n1 p43-54 2002
A study examined why students participate in outdoor activities. Questionnaires completed by 108 college freshmen aged 18-26 at the University of Transylvania (Romania) were supplemented with participant observation and conversations. Five motivational themes were identified: enjoyment and fun, meeting new friends, enjoying nature, escaping from daily routine and family, and exploring new territories. (Contains 37 references.)
