The intent of this paper is to introduce a theoretical framework for considering connections between outdoor adventure and health, not to present the findings of one or two new research studies. A compilation of empirical data will be presented from various studies to illustrate the proposed connections, and provide documentation for subjective observations and beliefs long held by outdoor adventure educators. Therefore, the format that follows is not one of a typical research report, but of a position paper with supporting empirical data from the author's own research.
