RVA Adult Women’s Backpacking Weekend

Dates: June 7-9th, 2019
Age Group: Adult Women (18+)
Home Base/Meeting Location: Richmond, 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 Richmond, VA on Friday, June 7th at 1:00PM to pack and drive to the trailhead. We will hike and camp in the backcountry, embracing the beauty of early summer, on Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning. We will return to Richmond at 2:00PM on Sunday, April 19th. This trip is ideal for women who are curious to try backpacking or who love backpacking and want to meet other women in the Richmond area who love it too. Our reflection theme for the weekend will be about the power of positivity. As always, all essential gear is available for borrowing, and scholarships are available upon request.
