Is your teen girl interested in the outdoors? Let her join us for this week-long adventure! Our version of the ideal week at summer camp includes whitewater rafting, day hiking, backpacking instruction, a 3-day 20-mile backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail, and a soak in the hot springs at Hot Springs Resort & Spa. Backpacking instruction will include information specific to the challenges young women face in the outdoors, and strategies to becoming more confident outdoorswomen. This is the perfect trip for girls to push out of their comfort zone and try something new in a supportive and empowering setting. The ideal age range for this trip is 14-17 years old and is open to anyone who identifies as female. This trip will have 2 guides with a maximum hiker-to-guide ratio of 4:1, so participants will receive plenty of one-on-one attention and personalized instruction!
Cost: $1280 per person. Price includes lodging from Sunday evening through Saturday morning, food from Sunday dinner through Saturday breakfast, all backpacking gear, transportation to all activities, admission cost for whitewater rafting and Hot Springs Resort & Spa, and gratuity for the guides. Price does not include personal items (clothing, medication, etc).
