Women’s Wilderness Weekend Level 1 Fall – 2024 – GA

September 27 - September 29

$225

Women’s Wilderness Weekend LEVEL 1 is a course directed towards women of all ages to encourage more female participation in the field of wilderness survival. Students from all skill levels are welcome and no experience is required. Whether you are a proclaimed survivalist, a weekend bushcrafter, a homesteader, an ultralight hiker, or just a general everyday woodswoman this class is designed to promote a sense of community through our shared love of nature. Together we will build skills that promote confidence both within ourselves and out in the woods.

Throughout the weekend we will learn to take care of our immediate needs in wilderness survival as we discuss self-aid, fire, navigation and shelter. Other topics will include self-defense, hygiene, and signaling for rescue. This class is for participants who desire to both learn and grow, as well as how to develop a sense of resilience through self-reliance in both community and as individuals in the wild.
