Food: Let’s start with the most important thing: food. We cook a lot for ourselves and others so let’s be honest, the idea of more cooking might not sound super fun. Which is cool because campfires, food and foil are a perfect trio. We’ll provide good food everyone will enjoy. Vegan, vegetarian, carnivores alike will love how we “fire” up some sweet meals.
Toilets: Poop in the woods? Sounds fun until it gets a little messy. While we’re keen to camp, some stuff just isn’t worth the fight. We'll have a few porta potties available. But there’s also plenty of woods, and we encourage bravery (and hand sanitizer.)
Showers: Yeah, after running in the woods or climbing boulders we stink. But we don’t have running water in the woods. No worries. We’ll have a couple of options. If it’s been a nice wet summer we’ll have some sweet rivers to bathe in. If it’s dry we’ll show you other options to ditching the nasty. Well, some of it.
Gear: Don’t have gear, never fear. That’s what this weekend is about. Your campsite host will contact you a few weeks before the big party and you’ll work together to cover your needs. While you’ll want to have your own personal gear like a sleeping bag, pillow and possibly your own toothbrush, we’ll help cover your big ticket items like a tent. And here’s the super amazing thing. We’ve got outdoor gurus who can help you find and buy anything you might want for your outdoor future. Consider them your personal adventure shoppers.
Sick, Wounded, Dying? We’ll have a medical crew on hand to make sure you get home.
Pumping Mammas: You’re always welcome at SheVentures Camp. Campsites don’t have electricity, but we’ll have a generator and small tent set aside for nursing moms who need to operate pumps. (However, it’s a pump-and-dump situation, unless you bring your own cooler.)
Location and Transportation: Base Camp is on 530 acres of wooded property atop infamous Suck Creek Mountain. Because it's forested, we can’t (don't want to) squeeze in millions of cars. (It’s private property and we gotta respect the land.) So try to carpool if ya can!
Technology: Life is full and loud and often complicated; SheVentures Camp isn’t. Our goal is to put ourselves in an environment to grow and stretch ourselves and this means giving up control of some of those things that give us comfort. You might have cell coverage on the mountain and you might not. You definitely won’t have access to wi-fi. Sorry. (Email and camping are oxymorons.) You’ll be in service at least once on Saturday for lunch so if you HAVE to connect with the rest of the world you’ll have a chance then.
Trash: We’re jerks about leave no trace. That means nothing. Nada. Not even your chewed gum. This land is beautiful and we wanna take care of it. Everything you bring in you gotta take back out. Poop in the woods? Yes, yes you do have to haul out yo wipes.
