Women's Adventure Weekend 2013 Recap!

This past weekend, 59 women (a record number!) joined together on the shores of Big Blue Lake for Women's Adventure Weekend, our fall women-only weekend that provides fun, relaxation, and friendship to whomever signs up!


More pictures to come!
Friday evening was full of fun and introductions as the women settled into their cabins and got to know each other with some group games and make-your-own pizza in Nikana Lodge. Following the late dinner, some women elected to take a Night Hike! Many of the women said that the Night Hike was their favorite part of the weekend. Afterwards, several women gathered together and had small fires in some of the several fire pits around camp.

Saturday was jam-packed with activities! After breakfast, Archery, Slingshots, BB Guns, Christmas Ornament-making and Tye-Dye were provided. In addition to these target sports and crafts, the zipline and our high ropes course was open to the group.

After lunch, many of the women went on a canoe trip down the White River, while others relaxed by the lake on our Adirondack chairs or with a boat ride. The climbing wall, candle-making, yoga, a hike to Sleepy Hollow and our compass course were also open to enjoy! 

The evening offered tomahawk throwing, high ropes, BB guns and our twilight zipline. Some women, however elected to just relax by the shores of Big Blue Lake with a good book.


On Sunday morning, there was one last chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery, take a boat ride, fly down the zipline, shoot an arrow and tackle the climbing wall. Then, it was time to head home!
"I had a spectacular weekend with friends kayaking, conquered the 50' rock climbing wall, attempted paddle board yoga stunts, laughed my bum off, traversed high ropes course, canoed the river while playing clever autumn inspired games... Another memorable year!"
With near-perfect weather and a great group of women, this weekend could not have gone any better. We can't wait to see them all next year and maybe you or someone you know will join them!


SAVE THE DATE FOR NEXT YEAR'S WAW:
