Camp Like a Girl!
Back from a popular trip we ran in 90's and early 2000's we're going all-out for an all-girls adventure!
This Camp Like A Girl trip is both a great introduction to the outdoors for new adventurers as well as great challenge for those intrepid young women who are already comfortable in the wilderness. Participants will venture through the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests with the same variety of activities and challenge as our Classic Adventures, but this trip is ALL GIRLS!
Our goal is to provide an exciting, supportive, and challenging experience to inspire confidence, leadership, and sisterhood.
This year's Trip Dates: July 23-29, 2017
As part of the Wilderness Adventure philosophy, girls will backpack from campsite to campsite throughout our Base Camp and National Forest carrying with them their clothing, food, shelter, and water! All weight and distances are designed for an optimal balance of challenge and fun! Young women on this trip will gain a unique sense of self as they move under their own steam and learn to care for themselves and each other in a natural environment!
One of the best outcomes of this fully female experience will be a chance to forge close positive relationships with other girls. By accomplishing group goals and seeing each other accomplish personal feats, girls will learn to support and lead others. Between tent partners, cook groups, canoe partners and more, girls will spark lasting friendships based on fun and adventure!
Backpacking, camp fires, canoeing, zip lining, camping out, caving, and so so so much more is in store for the ladies on this trip. Each day will be filled with new experiences and challenges that will certainly grow any young woman's comfort zone. Possibly the most important aim of any of our programs, and central to the Camp Like a Girl trip, is to have a blast!
