Dates: May 24-27th, 2019
Age Group: Middle School Girls (6th-8th grade)
Home Base/Meeting Location: Richmond, VA
Experience Level: Prior backpacking experience may be helpful but is definitely not necessary. The only requirement is that you can walk on uneven terrain and carry a pack of approximately 30lbs. Positive attitudes are a PLUS! Please contact Emma with any concerns. Allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated with prior notice.
Trip Description: The trip will gather in Richmond, VA on Friday, May 24th at 3:00PM to pack and drive to the trailhead. We will hike and camp in the backcountry for three nights, and we will return to Richmond at 2:00PM on Monday, May 27th (Memorial Day). This trip is ideal for girls who really want to explore nature in a safe, fun environment. The trip will be led by two experiences and goofy adult women. Our reflection theme for the weekend will be about facing the things that stress us out and learning to laugh, rejoice, and relax! As always, all essential gear is available for borrowing, and scholarships are available upon request.
