The effects of wilderness camping and hiking on the self-concept and the environmental attitudes and knowledge of twelfth graders



The effects of wilderness camping and hiking on the self-concept and the environmental attitudes and knowledge of twelfth graders



Journal of Environmental Education 22(3): 33-44



The purpose of this research was to determine what effect a challenging 6-day wilderness experience would have on the self-concept, and the knowledge of and attitude toward the environment, of 61 12th-grade students from a secondary high school in British Columbia, Canada. The experimental and control groups were pre- and post-tested with the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS), the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory (SEI), and an environmental attitude and knowledge questionnaire.
