Since the IDP has been extended until September 7 (meaning NO in-person meetings) and camp use will now be restricted until November, WWW will be rescheduled for our usual weekend gathering in March.

Wild Women's Weekend is now scheduled for March 19-21, 2021 at Camp Sacajawea.

  • If you can't attend or are unsure at this time and would like a refund, please let us know: adventurers1912@gmail.com We can refund by Venmo or by check. If you would like a check, please include your address. 
  • If you plan to attend, let us know and we can hold onto your registration and registration fee.

New coordinators will still need to take Overnight and Trip Training online before WWW. If the council offers Event Training before WWW, you can take that as well, freeing you to do other fun activities at WWW. However, we will still offer Event Training and Adventurer Training at WWW.
