This book shares the two key models of the 5D Process (Diagnosis, Design, Delivery, Debrief, and Departure) and the L.E.T.S. Plan (Logistics, Events, Timing, and Staff). Both models work in harmony to guide programmers in effectively planning experiential programs. This book and its ongoing case studies will prove useful for:
  • experiential practitioners who have credible levels of technical expertise in adventure activities and less experience or training in program planning;
  • program administrators who are competent at planning in other fields, but feel less prepared to supervise adventure or experiential programs;
  • academic educators who teach courses, or sections within courses, that focus directly on adventure and experiential program planning; and
  • students who are taking courses in program planning or outdoor leadership and adventure experiences.
