The therapeutic benefits of being outdoors in nature should not be under estimated. Adventure therapy offers a powerful pathway to improving physical and emotional well-being. The NHS, along with other studies, has recognised the benefits of adventure led activities such as Climbing. Outdoors activities and adventure sports are a superb way of supporting rehabilitation, improving physical and emotional well-being of children and adults with disabilities or difficulties, and building self-confidence, self-belief, belonging and emotional resilience. For more information about the benefits of adventure therapy please see our blog.
