Our mission is to strengthen the courage, confidence, and leadership qualities of girls and women through the challenge and support of group wilderness and community based experiences.

We aim to be a welcoming, safe place for people of all backgrounds and identities to explore the gifts of the wilderness.  We continually seek to improve our selection of courses in order to provide opportunities to anyone who has felt that they do not fit into mainstream “outdoor culture.”

Our programs are designed to be heart-centered, relational, collaborative adventures, while providing solid instruction in wilderness living, outdoor skills and back country safety.

Whether you are seeking a rejuvenating week of backpacking, the skills to build your own top-rope anchor, or the determination to make a major change in your life, we hope you will join us for an unforgettable experience that will increase your wilderness skills, refresh your spirit, connect you to new friends and bring you the joy of a wilderness adventure!
