 A common critique of outdoor recreation programs is that they are not accessible to marginalized communities, including women and people of color. This trip is designed as a wilderness retreat for women and femme-identifying students. The goal of this trip is to create a safe and empowering environment for women to explore outdoor recreation and to have a space to talk openly about women?s issues. The trip will be a mix of hiking, swimming, relaxing, and discussion.
