Outdoor Adventures

We break down barriers to accessing the outdoors. We increase engagement in healthy risk, challenge by choice, and develop outdoor leadership skills. Our developing Leadership Progression Model creates dynamic leadership growth and skill development through every adventure.

WHI adventures range in half-day, full-day, overnight, and multi-day experiences. Adventure locations and ideas are recommended to us by girls in our community. Girls help shape the opportunities we provide and the places we explore. This is one way we incorporate the girl voice into our outdoor adventures.

All adventures are FREE to participate! We provide healthy meals and snacks, transportation, and necessary gear when needed. We believe the outdoors is for every woman and aim to breakdown all barriers so all girls can explore Idaho's wild places.

I learned that stepping outside my comfort zone is perfectly fine around the girls in WHI!

I learned that I have many traits of a leader and can improve them.
— Charlie, Jump Creek Hike Adventurer
1. Going on new trails isn’t always too risky! 2. I actually enjoy meeting new people. 3. I appreciate girls around my age more, I don’t usually give them enough credit.
