SheJumps' Wild Skills youth events teach young girls the survival and technical skills they need for outdoor adventuring. These skills can be applied in any season or region and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace, 10 essentials, shelter building and more. Our events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges and think creatively which develops perseverance and fosters confidence.
Our goal is to see girls learning, having fun and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support from female mentors. We want Wild Skills to be an experience they will remember, one that will spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and will remind them that they are capable of anything.
SheJumps Youth Initiatives & The Mountaineers are proud to present a day of learning Wild Skills for Pacific Northwest girls ages 6-12. Girls will be introduced to the skills they need for adventuring such as first aid, leave no trace, 10 essentials and rock climbing. They will learn, participate and create, plus all will receive a Wild Skills journal for joining in the fun.
