If you are women 40 and over, and have always wanted to experience a Crow outtrip, this is the program for you! A weekend in the mountains with other women, experienced leaders, and a spiritual component will create a memorable experience. We would love for you to join us!
Beginning from our Lake Site, this incredible weekend women’s backpacking trip explores the valleys, plateaus, and mountain peaks of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Along with breathtaking scenery and varying levels of hiking challenges, you will learn backpacking and outdoor skills. The outtrip size is limited in order to maximize the opportunity to explore more areas and invest in relationships. The focus is biblical, with an outstanding venue in the wilderness. Enjoy speaking times by the fire accompanied by beautiful hikes into remote locations, but more importantly, come expecting to be refreshed and share an amazing experience with other women in the backcountry.
You will be expected to carry at least 30lbs in a 50-80 litre backpack; packs will include both personal and gear. Participants should be physically capable of carrying their pack for at least 5 kilometres on rough mountain terrain (you don’t have to be able to hike fast, but this is a traditional outtrip!). This may include trail hiking, off-trail hiking through bush, and steep rocky slopes. Outtrips will take place in varying levels of difficulty as outlined in our Outtrip Class System. This is traditional outtrip, so you will be sleeping under a single tarp or tent, the food will be cooked on camp stoves or over a fire, and all food and wildlife attractants such as soap, bug spray, or toothpaste will be hung from a bearline.
The outtrip will be led by qualified Outtrip Directors who oversee all aspects of the outtrip program such as route, outdoor skills training, activities, meal preparation, and the spiritual focus of the outtrip. The Outtrip Directors are also responsible for the safety of the group and are equipped to respond to any first aid or medical situations. The whole group will participate in the activities together, only seperating when directed. The pace and oversight of the group will be set to the level of the participants. We expect all group members to respect the leadership of the Outtrip Directors.
Join us by taking this great opportunity to get away for the weekend and explore the beauty of God’s creation this summer!
