Despite this difficulty, most adventure educators rise to the challenge of planning activities that aim to meet the needs of the participants.

The interaction between group members is likely to be a key factor in influencing outcomes. Personality, for example, is thought to be shaped by our interaction with others. As McKenzie (2000) points out, little adventure education research has attempted to identify how the characteristics of a participant’s group influence the impact of an adventure education programme. However, numerous authors have made sensible suggestions from a theoretical basis. Kimball and Bacon (1993) suggest that the strong feelings of mutual dependence often fostered during challenging situations help create a bond between participants that can be linked to the achievement of shared outcomes.
