these benefits were transferred to other aspects of their lives after the wilderness experience. The persons without disabilities in this integrated program reported increased levels of understanding of the capabilities of persons with disabilities, more positive attitudes about people with disabilities and increased tolerance of differences among people” (McAvoy et al., 1989).

There are observable “psychological, social and mental health benefits of wilderness group experiences for people with disabilities” (McAvoy et al., 1995; Robb and Ewert 1987). These benefits include “increased self-concept, self-esteem, and self-fulfillment, personal growth, increased leisure skills, increased social adjustment and cooperation, enhanced body image and positive behavior change.”(McAvoy et al., 1989).

The agencies that regularly participate with Splore report similar experiences. Splore provides opportunities for new social connections, skills, self-esteem, and knowledge of the outdoors to all kinds of people by facilitating positive outdoor group adventures.
