WILD SKILLS Day Camp: Basics Tacoma

Saturday, June 8, 2019, 3:00 PM

SheJumps' Wild Skills youth events teach young girls the survival and technical skills they need for outdoor adventuring. These skills can be applied in any season or region and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace, 10 essentials, shelter building and more. Our events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges and think creatively which develops perseverance and fosters confidence.    Our goal is to see girls learning, having fun and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support from female mentors. We want Wild Skills to be an experience they will remember, one that will spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and will remind them that they are capable of anything.    SheJumps Youth Initiatives & The Mountaineers are proud to present a day of learning Wild Skills for Pacific Northwest girls ages 6-12. Girls will learn, participate and create, plus all will receive a Wild Skills journal for joining in the fun. This event is intended for ages 6-12 girls (transgender and cisgender) as well as non-binary people who identify with the women’s community.   Sign up to volunteer at this event here: https://forms.gle/Kw4Z8fcvHMVU8ya29   Timeline for the Day 8:00 Registration opens / teams form 8:30 Welcome / Intro to SheJumps & Mountaineers 9:00 Class 1 10:00 Class 2 11:00 Class 3 11:45 Lunch 12:15 Class 4 1:00 Wrap up/End of Event   With generous support from The Mountaineers, SheJumps is able to offer this amazing opportunity for girls for a minimum $10 donation.
