This study examined the measurable religious influence of participating in the Pioneer Trek Reenactment as an adolescent on young adults. A sample of 73 former Pioneer Trek Reenactment participants were surveyed. Both males and females were surveyed, and all respondents were between the ages of 18 and 35.
The results of this study may bring understanding to the impact of historical reenactment activities, such as the Pioneer Trek Reenactment, on their participants. The study showed how the participants' perception of the Pioneer Trek Reenactment from a religious, recreational, and physical perspective correlated with their current religious activity. This information would be helpful to those who plan and direct outdoor recreation activities, giving insight into how these activities can have a lasting positive impact on youth. The results of this study may help recreation professionals, teachers, and religious leaders build meaningful and effective curriculum for similar experiential learning activities.
