The Recreation Enterprise
The many activities of ranging have been listed. It seems inappropriate, too narrow, to call all of the activities listed under each title to be "recreation." They are businesses, opportunities, therapies, etc. Here is the list The USFS lists Adventure games may be recreation, and they include rope climbing, backpacking, first-night-in the woods experiences, rope courses, artificial wll climbing (indoor ), human-scale ladder to climb a 14-18 foot wall, world ball play, orienteering.
