All our programs share these important elements:

  • Our instructors are skilled outdoor educators AND role models for our participants
  • We emphasize technical outdoor skills and time in the wilderness as a route towards greater self-confidence, self-efficacy, and empowerment
  • All courses occur in an atmosphere that cultivates respect, inclusivity, and collaboration

Women’s Wilderness is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization.  We are incredibly proud that in the history of our organization, we have never turned a girl away for financial reasons. Our Girls’ Wilderness Program is the heart of Women’s Wilderness’s mission, providing one- to ten-day adventures for girls in a supportive ‘girl-positive’ environment.
