Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Designing outdoor adventure programs: A systematic approach
by Tremblay, Robert L., M.A., Prescott College, 2003, 199; 1457122
Abstract (Summary)

This project-based thesis explores the developmental histories of diverse outdoor adventure programs as surveyed directly from the founders and developers of those programs. The thesis describes the common issues and challenges inherent in these histories and proposes a suggested model would-be developers of adventure programs could follow when creating and building new adventure programs. This model is fully described and articulated in manual form as the central project of the thesis. The conclusion of the thesis suggests further areas of exploration and study that could be undertaken to provide additional resources that would prove helpful to prospective adventure program developers.
