Education Endowment Foundation (2013): Outdoor Adventure Learning
A summary of the impact of outdoor adventure learning. Main findings:
A wide range of adventure activities are linked with increased academic achievement. Experiences of over a week tend to have greater impact and tend to produce effects of a longer duration.
The main effects tend to be on self-confidence, self-efficacy and motivation and for some pupils explicit links may need to be made to ensure lasting impact on academic attainment.
It is important to work with well-trained and well-qualified staff as adventure experiences can pose very different physical and emotional risks to those in schools.
