Are you tired of the same old “girl’s night out”? Do you want to find a truly rewarding experience with women seeking to advance in their professional and personal lives? Then register today for this weekend adventure where you will rejuvenate your self-confidence, refresh your spirit, and renew your sense of accomplishment. Through the seven priorities of survival, you, along with other dynamic women, will successfully navigate several challenging scenarios. In the end, you will acquire practical skills that relate to both survival in the wilderness and to personal growth. You will even be assessed to determine individual styles and preferences that in turn impact your unique approach to challenging situations. No wilderness experience is necessary – all you need is the courage to take the first step toward a new, and stronger, you! Register today!
