Accidents and mishaps are a reality in outdoor and adventure programs. Applying risk management strategies to the scenarios in "Risk Management in Outdoor and Adventure Programs" gives outdoor adventure leaders increased knowledge of the inherent risks of their profession as well as their legal responsibilities in programming, leadership, and management. This text can help leaders and their participants enjoy safe and successful adventures in the great outdoors.
