Through a mixed-methods approach, this study observes and analyzes the impacts of an outdoor-adaptive activity-day event on the quality of life of the families of the child participants with various disabilities. Four domains were identified through an extensive literature review highlighting (1) self-efficacy, (2) performance skills, (3) social participation, and (4) family cohesion. Results from this study support the impact outdoor-adaptive activities have on these four domains.
