Join us for an evening of Gear & Cheer on October 3rd at REI Denver Flagship store. There will 'mountain-themed' games for prizes and swag, dinner prepared by local chef Kestrel, and a silent and live auctions chock full of the hottest gear and bucket-list opportunities. To top it off, Journey Girls, an all-women's Journey cover band is playing live! It's an epic night of fun for a good cause.

Women’s Wilderness is a Colorado-based nonprofit founded in 1998 to cultivate courage, confidence, connection, and environmental stewardship among girls, women and the LGBTQ2+ community through year-round outdoor immersions across the West. We aim to be a welcoming, safe place for people of all backgrounds and identities to explore the gifts of the wilderness. We continually seek to improve our selection of courses in order to provide opportunities to anyone who has felt that they do not fit into mainstream “outdoor culture.”
We believe that all girls, regardless of ability to pay, should have access to life-changing wilderness experiences. In 2018, we awarded over $40,000 in need-based financial aid to girls so that they could participate in our programming. Over 75% of the girls awarded financial aid come from families that live at under 150% of the Federal Poverty Guideline.
"Women’s Wilderness has really made me a better person in a short amount of time. Being in the wilderness with nine other amazing, powerful girls has made me realize how much more I should be thankful for this experience and all the life skills I learned." - Girls' course participant
