This study investigates the perceived benefits of outdoor education and the impacts on self-efficacy on primary school children. Outdoor education has received positive feedback yet it is still an area which lacks in research and awareness. Qualitative research is used to examine changes in the children and their reactions during the course of an outdoor education programme and after. There are seem to be no significant differences between gender in terms of benefits but they will vary between individuals. The results suggest outdoor education can be a valuable tool in a child’s development and it has the potential to increase levels of self-efficacy.
