The use of outdoor adventure for education began in Britain because two men, from very different backgrounds and at different times, felt it was the right thing to do. They were concerned about the moral fibre of young men and saw the outdoor challenge as part of an approach to education that would address the need to develop them physically, socially, morally, and spiritually. The modern equivalent is called Development Training, and it is perhaps appropriate that the current popularity of this approach is so well founded in the roots of the concept. The two men were Baden Powell and Kurt Hahn.
