Abstract

The present study was undertaken in an effort to add to the slowly accumulating evidence concerning the worth of outdoor education projects in the following ways: (1) by describing in detail a three-day outdoor learning experience of a fifth grade class in the Swauk area of Kittitas County, Washington; (2) by carefully explaining and describing the procedures by which the experience was evaluated; (3) by presenting the results of the evaluation; and (4) by drawing tentative conclusions as to the value of this type of program.
