Outdoor Activity: What is it?

Outdoor activities are defined as those outdoor activities which: (a) are undertaken outdoors; (b) are undertaken with the purpose of having fun; and (c) do not involve the use of any artificial or man-made equipment. Outdoor activities may also include sports, dancing, boating, cycling, hiking, swimming, or anything else that might be considered fun and/or a workout.

So what types of activities can be considered a “recreational outdoor activity”? One of the most popular is a game of soccer, although it may be called a sport in other countries and in sports magazines. However, soccer is basically a team sport and not an individual sport, so this does not count as an outdoor activity.



Water rafting is another activity that can be done in the water. It is one of the few activities that is appropriate for all ages and is popular in both urban and rural settings. It may not actually involve the use of water, but can be considered an outdoor activity since the person in command of the raft may be in contact with water.

Camping may also be an outdoor activity. Camping involves sleeping in a tent, eating in a tent, and engaging in activities such as fishing, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, hiking, hunting, etc. The type of camping may be geared toward a particular group of people – if it is a family outing, for example – or it may be open to all campers, including young children.

Many camps offer a variety of activities to the child and to the adult interested in spending some time away from the television and other distractions on a summertime family camping trip. Some camps also provide RV trips for the family, so that the whole family can enjoy a weeklong trip together.

Another type of outdoor activity is boating, although this is generally considered an outdoor activity only for those who are particularly fond of water sports. A person who takes boating lessons is able to learn how to sail a boat, fish, and navigate it. It also provides an excellent chance to get some exercise and see some of the local wildlife that might be found in the area.

Swimming is yet another outdoor activity that may be considered an outdoor activity. Although not exactly an activity, it is considered to be an activity which involves both swimming and also the use of the beach. There are several beaches in many locations, and these beaches are considered by many people to be outdoor activities because people spend time on them.

Many people believe that boating is a particularly outdoor activity because it involves people on land and on water and it is not too often used by the general public. The owner of the boat may be able to take the water for granted, so that he or she can enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area without being disturbed. These boaters often use their boats to fish for food, to gather shells or rocks to polish, to enjoy the sun, and so on.
