NoVA High School Girls’ Backpacking Weekend

Dates: May 17-19th, 2019
Age Group: High School Girls (9th-12th grade)
Home Base/Meeting Location: Arlington, VA
Experience Level: No prior backpacking experience is needed! The only requirement is that you can walk on uneven terrain and carry a pack of approximately 30lbs. Please contact Emma with any concerns. Allergies and dietary restrictions can be accommodated with prior notice.
Trip Description: The trip will gather in Arlington, VA on Friday, May 17th at 3:00PM to pack and drive to the trailhead. We will hike and camp in the backcountry, embracing the beauty of early spring, on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. We will return to Arlington at 3:00PM on Sunday, April 19th. This trip is ideal for girls who are curious to try backpacking or who want a weekend of laughter and fun in the mountains. Our reflection theme for the weekend will be about self-doubt and the power of positivity. As always, all essential gear is available for borrowing, and scholarships are available upon request.
