This is camp. A camp just for ladies.
Maybe you went to summer camp as a kid and loved the excitment and freedom of the outdoors. Or maybe, you never went to camp and the woods remain a mystical place. Whatever your experience you're welcome here.
For three days and two nights we pitch tents, start fires and learn to do things like rock climb, trail run, mountain bike, hike or paddle board. Oh, and we keep it small. No big groups here. By the end of the weekend you'll most likely be known and adored by everyone.
You bring what gear you have and we give you the rest (but not to take home...our gear partners might not like that.) We also provide any necessary gear for fun...a bike, paddle board, we'll even let you use some sweet trail running or hiking shoes if you don't have any. We want to make camp as accessible as possible. To all women.
After our day of stretching outside our comfort zone we'll sit around a fire (that we built) and share stories of success and laugh at our failures. And drink beer. Or Coke. Your choice, our treat.

FAQ, Gear, and the Toilet
We tried to keep the cost low. $500 for the weekend covers all meals, gear, and some fun stuff to take home. And the porta-potties. Yeah, we won't make you poop in the woods...just yet. Our goal is to inspire you to leave camp believing in yourself more deeply. We're passionate about this camp being accessible to everyone AND we need to cover the cost of creating an excellent experience.
Let’s start with the most important thing: food. We’ll provide good food everyone will enjoy. Vegan, vegetarians, carnivores alike will love how we “fire” up some sweet meals.
Poop in the woods? Sounds fun until it gets a little messy. While we’re keen to camp some stuff just isn’t worth the fight. We'll have a few porta-potties available. But there’s also plenty of woods, and we encourage bravery (and hand sanitizer.)
Yeah, after running in the woods or climbing boulders we stink. But we don’t have running water in the woods. No worries. We’ll have a couple of options. If it’s been a nice wet summer we’ll have some sweet rivers to bathe in. If it’s dry we’ll show you other options to ditching the nasty. Well, some of it.
Don’t have gear, never fear. That’s what this weekend is about. Your campsite host will contact you a few weeks before the big party and you’ll work together to cover your needs. While you’ll want to have your own personal gear like a sleeping bag, pillow, and possibly your own toothbrush, we’ll help cover your big-ticket items like a tent. And here’s the super amazing thing. We’ve got outdoor gurus who can help you find and buy anything you might want for your outdoor future. Consider them your personal adventure shoppers.
Sick, Wounded, Dying?
We’ll have a medical crew on hand to make sure you get home.
You’re always welcome at SheVentures Camp. Campsites don’t have electricity, but we’ll have a generator and small tent set aside for nursing moms who need to operate pumps. We even have coolers for your liquid gold.
Location and Transportation
Base Camp is on 530 acres of wooded property atop the infamous Suck Creek Mountain. Because it's forested, we can’t (don't want to) squeeze in millions of cars. (It’s private property and we gotta respect the land.) So try to carpool if ya can...we'll give you an extra square of toilet paper to use.
Life is full and loud and often complicated; SheVentures Camp isn’t. Our goal is to put ourselves in an environment to grow and stretch and this means giving up control of some of those things that bring us comfort. You might have cell coverage on the mountain and you might not. You definitely won’t have access to wi-fi. Sorry. (Email and camping are oxymorons.)
We’re jerks about enforcing leave no trace (which means you leave your campsite looking like you were never there). That means nothing. Nada. Not even your chewing gum. This land is beautiful and we wanna take care of it. Everything you bring in you gotta take back out. Poop in the woods? Yes...yes you do have to haul out yo wipes.
Gotta be 18...and not dead. Any age in that range and you've got a place at the campfire.
The purpose of the weekend is to learn new things and stretch our comfort zones. You’ll have the chance to rock climb, mountain bike, paddleboard, trail run, or hike all while being coached and encouraged by other women.
Activities are determined by registration order so once we get your registration we’ll send you a sign-up form. This means we gotta cap numbers...so register quickly to make sure you get your top activities!
