Why Outdoor Leadership, Adventure, and Education are important for girls…
- Enhanced self-esteem & confidence
- Improved body image
- Problem solving & resourcefulness
- Stress relief
- Connection to nature
- Greater sense of Community
“Those who pursue outdoor recreation demonstrate higher levels of self-esteem, self-trust, self-worth, assertiveness, self-sufficiency, independence, confidence, empowerment, and body image as well as a greater sense of community and stress relief through interaction with the natural environment [3,10,11,12]. The benefits outdoor recreation participation can offer to females paints a clear picture of the importance of not only exposing girls to the outdoors but in helping them build the skills to experience sustained participation in outdoor recreation.”
