Women's Expeditions

Women’s Expeditions is an exciting program aimed at empowering women to become leaders through outdoor experiences. Women’s Expeditions seeks to challenge women mentally and physically by taking risks and testing their limits in the great outdoors. At the end of each Expedition, participants are encouraged to apply what they learned to their personal and professional lives.
