As a nonprofit organization, The Women’s Wilderness Institute is much more than a backcountry adventure. Our mission is to strengthen the courage, confidence, and leadership qualities of girls and women, through the support and challenge of wilderness- and community-based experiences.
For ten summers The Women’s Wilderness Institute has welcomed women and girls to explore the outdoors in their own style, acquiring new skills, finding inspiration, rejuvenation and joy from the natural world and others on a shared adventure. Over 2,700 women and girls have joined us for a memorable adventure.
Every woman and girl brings her own set of hopes, apprehensions and intentions. And we listen. On Women’s Wilderness Institute courses you’ll find a flexible, comfortable atmosphere that respects individual styles and needs, and allows the natural wisdom, gifts and leadership of each person to shine.
