Gym-to-Crag Destination Workshop in Acadia National Park
Bar Harbor, Maine
Join our group of AdventurHERs for a long weekend of rock climbing in the beautiful Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine as the leaves turn in the fall. We'll climb the famed Otter Cliffs and beautiful inland granite as we learn how to take our gym climbing outside, gaining necessary skills like anchor building, site selection, and reading routes outdoors. We'll take an early hike up Cadillac Mountain to see the country's first sunrise of the day. We'll enjoy a boat ride around the harbor islands on a lobster boat "booze cruise." We’ll enjoy the beautiful fiery reds and bright oranges of foliage season in New England. We'll have a wicked good time.

Surf & Paddle Downeast
Become a surfer babe by morning and tour the beautiful Maine seacoast by sea kayak in the afternoon. September is a best kept secret in Maine: the water is at its warmest, the black flies are nowhere to be found, and it's the lull between the summer crowds and the leaf-peepers. We'll get our own line-up of badass women to learn to surf when the waves are good in the mornings, and then we'll enjoy kayaking around the islands and lighthouses lying directly off the shore in the afternoon into sunset. We'll tour some incredible Maine craft breweries, and we'll enjoy a lobster bake at our own beach bonfire, because that's how we roll Downeast.
