Young Women Soar in the Great Outdoors

As we prepare for Summer Camp, our priority is always the health and safety of our campers. As such, we remain proactive as new information develops regarding COVID-19. We will update our website with new information as needed.

Building off our successful Young Women’s Leadership trips, this set of trips is designed to build a camper’s self-confidence through wilderness challenges, growth experiences, and empowering interpersonal relationships with same-gender peers. We will also facilitate and engage in intentional conversations about gender roles in the leadership and the outdoors.

*These trips are led by same-gender counselors and are open to any female-identifying camper.*

Young Women’s Confidence Trip:
Adirondack Trail Builder (Grades 9-12)

Join us on an adventure that gives back to a place that we visit frequently: the Adirondacks. Last summer, over 60 participants went on this journey for 100+ days all throughout the Adirondacks so this is an amazing opportunity to help maintain the trails we use so often. This trip will entail different projects such as clearing brush, building bridges, and digging water dams. Campers will receive 35 hours of community service for their volunteer work.
