Friends & Fun at Women's Adventure Weekend 2011
This past weekend, a group of over 20 women, with ages ranging from the 20s to the 80s, gathered at Camp Pendalouan for a weekend of outdoor activities, memory making, and relaxation.
The weekend started off on Friday with a low key evening in the lodge. The group of women played some fun team-building games to get to know each other a little better. There were so
many smiles and a lot of laughter!
While Friday was relaxing, Sunday was a jam-packed day of activity and adventure! Several women tried their hand on our zipline, climbing wall, and high ropes course. Many commented that it was fun to try the activity that their kids had done while at Pendalouan for Outdoor Education or Summer Camp. Our archery and riflery ranges were also open to enjoy shooting bows and arrows or our air-soft rifles. Another highlight of the day was the canoe trip down the White River - a beautiful trip down a winding, but calm river not too far from camp.
In the evening, there was a Craft Fair in the lodge! The group of women - having bonded quite a bit after 24 hours of fun, laughter and activities - bounced between making journals, bookmarks, Halloween decorations to bring back to the family, while enjoying each other's company and hand-dipped caramel apples.
The schedule allowed for as much or as little participation as participants wanted and there were always opportunities to enjoy our boating and swim areas whenever they pleased. One daring group of women decided to do a "Rejuvenation Dip" in the early morning on Sunday. (sounds a lot like our Polar Bear Swim during the Summer!
Even with such a plethora of activities, the weekend was relaxing and so much fun! New friends, new memories, great times! We can't wait for Women's Adventure Weekend 2012!
