Be Adventurous. Start by taking baby-steps towards who you want to be. If you’ve wanted to dip your toe into the world of camping but don’t know where to start, then this 2-day and one-night retreat is for you. Photo by James Mills.

Be Community. We’ll create a great community space including a camp lounge, trail mix bar, and plenty of outdoor fun. Be Teachable. Included in your registration fee is a pre-camp workshop to help campers plan and prepare for this adventure.

Be Delighted. You’ll appreciate the opportunity to meet other women who like laughing by the light of the moon and sleeping under the stars. Photo by Kim Gould.

Be Prepared. We will provide the positive, welcoming vibe – you bring your food (Saturday lunch and dinner), tent, and sleeping gear. REI will have cooking stations available for use, and you are welcome to bring your own camp stove and cookware if you’ve got it. We’ve got you covered for coffee Sunday morning and breakfast as well.

No gear? No problem. REI will have a supply of tents available to use for this camping adventure if you do not have one. There is a spot in the registration to list gear that you need.

Be Silly. Being adventurous is also about not taking yourself too seriously while you explore the world around you. Photo by Kim Gould.
