SheJumps Wild Skills Adventure: Crystal Mountain
Aug 9 @ 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

Join us for a Wild Skills Adventure at Crystal Mountain Resort on Friday, August 9th! SheJumps’ Wild Skills Adventures are open community events where parents/chaperones participate with the girls. Throughout the adventure, girls are introduced to a range of outdoor skills which include first aid, navigation, leave no trace, 10 essentials, shelter building and more.

We strive to engage all generations in the sharing of knowledge and understanding. Connecting experience, energy and love for our natural places with the technical and survival skills girls need to get out and adventure.

Schedule for the Day:

The event start is a rolling one – where groups can show up as they want between 9:30 am – 11:30 am and move through the stations until they close at 3 pm.

On the day of the event, you’ll register and get your specialized Wild Skills Adventure map which will guide you throughout the event. You start the day at the Crystal Mountain base area with a lesson in Leave No Trace principles and a ‘gear check’ to make sure you brought your 10 Essentials.

From there you’ll board the Crystal Mountain scenic gondola which takes you over wildflower meadows and climbs up 2,000 feet to the summit where you can enjoy views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Range.

From the summit, you’ll wind down the Crystal Mountain trail to different Adventure Stations set up throughout your journey. At each station, you’ll learn something new, have a challenge to figure out or get a treat. The Adventure Stations will allow girls to put to practice areas of our Wild Skills curriculum including shelter building, navigation, first aid, sound mapping and more.

Once you’ve completed the task at the station you’ll get a stamp and move along to the next. At the end of the hike, you’ll turn in your Adventure Map for a chance to win prizes.

At the end of the hike, we’ll have a Wrap Party with games, music, face painting, food for purchase and a chance drawing.
