Girls Empowered Leadership and Adventure is for girls 14–17 years old interested in a multi-day wilderness experience and building skills and confidence in leadership and outdoor travel. Participants should also have interest in continued work with SOEI Girls Empowered programs. We ask that our Girls Empowered Leadership and Adventure participants commit to helping us lead our monthly programs for younger participants throughout the following school year.
On our trip, we will travel to northern Minnesota, car camp for one evening, and then paddle into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness for eight days. We will car camp for one more evening before heading home. Participants will learn skills in self-care, reading maps and compasses, communication, outdoor living, cooking, natural history, and leading groups. There will also be regular opportunities for art, stewardship, and reflection.
The itinerary includes at least six travel days as well as a day or two for rest. Participants will be led by two seasoned professionals with years of paddling, group, and outdoor experience.
Cost: $450 – $40 (sliding scale)
