Detailed Course Description

Descripción del curso  

Through the adventure of both rock climbing and backpacking, find your best, most awesome self in wild places with an inspiring group of girls and women.

This 9-day course will include a 2-day climbing section, where you will learn techniques and movement for climbing outdoors at Vedauwoo, Wyoming, home of world-class rock climbing!  Then you will head out on a backpacking trip where you will have the opportunity to learn about camp craft, cooking, mountain weather, navigation, and just have a lot of FUN in the mountains.

Throughout the trip, you will have opportunities to discuss and explore what really makes you unique in this world.  What special attributes do you bring to the group on your backpacking trip?  How do you contribute to the team?  How can you really bring these gifts forward once you return home?  We will work with goal setting, application of leadership skills to home, and development of personal leadership style.

“This course has been such a blast! I had never been backpacking before, and I learned sooooo much! Although backpacking was intense and challenging, I was able to pull a lot from the experience, especially how to handle leadership. I learned a lot about sharing, helping out and giving it your all. The girls I have met will be life-long friends!” – Terra, 16
