The aim of present study was to examine the interaction of the hierarchical model of motivation and the hierarchical model of approach and avoidance achievement goals in the Context of Leisure and Outdoor Recreational Activities. A sample of 200 children (108 boys, 92 girls) from summer camps participated in the study from Macedonia area. Results from regression analyses of data were consistent with study hypotheses and with previous findings examining the effects of achievement goals on motivation. Mastery-oriented motivational climate was positively related with intrinsic motivation and negatively related with non-self-determined extrinsic motivation and amotivation. Avoidance-oriented motivational climate was negatively related with intrinsic motivation and positively related with amotivation. Performance (approach-avoidance)-oriented motivational climate was positively related with non-self-determined extrinsic motivation.
