According to a report by the Outdoor Foundation, a non-profit organization that encourages future generations of outdoor enthusiasts, teens overall are spending less time outside.

Research has repeatedly proven that time outdoors reduces levels of stress, depression, and anxiety. Many factors contribute to this effect. Our feelings of mindfulness, positivity, and wonder increase when we spend time outside. Furthermore, being surrounded by nature can inspire tranquility and positivity. Therefore, our state of mind improves.

Fun, safe, multi-sport outdoor activities provide opportunities for teens to take calculated risks and push their limits. Moreover, this type of risk-taking develops resilience and self-confidence, as opposed to risky behaviors associated with substance use.

Our community courses and camps will provide life-long skills, build confidence, increase physical activity, improve mood, and educate teen girls on how to participate in a variety of outdoor activities safely and independently.
*Participants will earn a challenge chip for each course completed to be redeemed for discounts in summer camp adventures! Must attend both Saturday and Sunday course.
