The Brazenly Wild Women’s Retreat will be held at the Boyer YL Guest Ranch in Savery, Wyoming on July 19-23, 2018. Two nights will be spent in shared accommodations in the rustic cabins that rest on the 500-acre ranch. Guests will also enjoy two nights backpacking in the adjacent National Forest. All meals provided with special attention to allergies, and vegan, gluten-free, and paleo guidelines.
Start the adventure with an afternoon check-in. Unwind, explore the grounds, and meet new friends. The first night will be spent in shared accommodations in the ranch guest cabins.
Awake to fresh breakfast, morning stretching, and meditation each morning, both at the ranch and in the forest. Gather gear and head out on a short backpack hike (3-5 miles) into the National Forest. Food and water will be transported to the camp location, keeping everyone’s pack at a manageable weight. Guests are responsible for bringing an appropriate backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad for campout nights, and personal items.
Once we reach our destination, set up camp, explore, and share in meal preparation learning gourmet backcountry cooking techniques. Enjoy two evenings around the campfire in the National Forest with new friends. Sleep in shared tents (or bring your own) under the Wyoming star-filled night sky.
On day 3, after a relaxing morning ritual, spend a full day journaling, drawing, and hiking in the National Forest. Identify local plants, trees, and spot wildlife.
On day 4, return to the Boyer YL Ranch for an evening cookout on the rim with 360 degree views. Enjoy a cozy night in the cabins followed by breakfast before departing the ranch.
