We will be camping for the week, in both wild locations and established campsites. Top quality equipment is provided to make week as comfortable as possible! We’ll be bringing along a traditional Lavu (teepee) for communal space and shelter. It's ok if this is your first wild camping experience, you won't be the only one in the group new to it :)
We’ll also give you a kit list so you can be prepared, most of this you’ll most likely already own!
CAN I COME ALONE?
As with all our Gutsy Girl events and holidays, we encourage you to come solo! Most women joining the week will be travelling alone, plus there is a Gutsy Girl Host on hand to introduce you to your group. We will also connect you with other women on the trip beforehand, so you can make travel arrangements together and meet up!
