Women’s Wilderness provides outdoor experiences and wilderness adventures for girls in the Rocky Mountains and Desert Southwest. While the quality of the outdoor experiences they offer is amazing (your girl will come back with all kinds of newfound skills), the real takeaway here is the leadership, self-sufficiency, and confidence they foster in young women. There are two amazing programs for high school age girls—a week-long backpacking trip in Colorado and Wyoming, and a weekend-long rock climbing camp in southern Wyoming—and a camping/light backpacking program for middle schoolers. Side note: Their camps for grown-ups are pretty sweet, too.
