Redwood Adventure Coast is for girls and gender non-conforming youth entering 6th and 7th grade. Participants spend 7 days and 6 nights camping and hiking at Butano State Park Park and kayak on Half Moon Bay. Students explore concepts such as trust, social justice, identity, and leadership through activities designed for their age group. All gear, food, and transportation is provided and no prior experience is necessary.

Kayaking provides the format and structure through which young people can develop the physical, emotional, and social tools that help them be successful on this course and also with their families, schools and other groups.  

While camping in the Redwoods the youth will learn to live with each other, creating their ideal community norms. They will sleep in 3-4 person tents each night, and take turns cooking nutritious meals for each other. All this while learning the importance of Leave No Trace Ethics, and the connection between the natural world and people.

Program Cost

To ensure that all girls have the opportunity to participate in our programs, we offer sliding scale tuition.  Once a participant is accepted for a specific course, they and their family will self-select their household income range, tuition amount, and preferred payment plan.  We do not require proof of income.  We ask that families pay an amount within the recommended sliding scale for their income bracket, at minimum.  Selected tuition may be paid in up to four monthly installments. As a non-profit organization dedicated to providing equitable access to outdoor education, GirlVentures subsidizes the tuition of all participants.
