The new perspective on outdoor education in sports identifies it as a method of unfolding that falls under psychosocial bearing. The main focus of our study is on ethical principles as a manifestation of accountability, respect, honesty, independence, self-control, and courage in young people's interpersonal relationships. This approach takes the stance that education entails the promotion of numerous types of personal and social advantages, especially the idea of personal wellbeing. It is stated that advancing this perspective offers the best suitable lens through which to examine the educational benefits of outdoor adventure activities. Our study revels personality features that are enriched by the outdoor education: initiative, perseverance, enthusiasm, tenacity, organizational aptitudes. The authentic relation man-nature, and the free spirit of outdoor education has positive impact on a harmonious healthy life of modern society.
