Girls Explore the Outdoors on Mendocino County Camping Trip

Twenty of our high school girls participated in a two-day camping excursion in Mendocino County in April!

The trip had a packed schedule where the girls flexed their teamwork and communication skills by working together to set up camp and cook their meals onsite. They also experimented with positive risk-taking, embarking on a canoe trip alongside harbor seals and otters, creating banana slug slime and learning how to follow the North Star on a night hike!


For many participants, this was the first time they had spent extended time in nature. The overall consensus? They would do it all over again!

Thank you to the Save the Redwoods League for funding this outdoor adventure!
