dc.description.abstractThis chapter discusses the leisure-based innovation, known as Recovery Camp (RC), from the perspective of the developing evidence base on RC’s role in offering leisure-based challenge, support, and facilitation of participant's self-determination and personal resilience within mental health recovery. The value of this case study for academic audiences is the comprehensive review of the research findings of RC as a leisure intervention and discussion of the application of the theoretical constructs of self-determination theory and resilience within leisure-based RC practice. The value of the case study for non-academic audiences is gaining a thorough understanding of leisure in the context of RC for the purposes of facilitating individual's mental health recovery and understanding how purposefully-designed outdoor leisure activities can have life-changing benefits for participants. In essence, RC adds new evidence to the existing evidence base of therapeutic recreation and enriches the perception that leisure is more than just a ‘good time’, through demonstrating that leisure can be used as a therapeutic modality to educate, facilitate self-determination, unlock intrinsic resilience, and improve the mental health of participants.en_US
