Redwood Adventure Rock is for girls and gender non-conforming youth entering 6th and 7th grade. Participants spend 5 days and 4 nights camping and and climbing at Sanborn County Park and Castle Rock State Park. All gear, food, and transportation is provided and no prior experience is necessary. Courses begin between 8-9 am on the first day and end between 4-6 pm on the last day. 

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.
