Women’s Wilderness Weekend with Wildcard Wilderness

March 22-24, 2024

(20 Students Max) 3 Days or 2 Nights

Lead Instructor: Jacks Genega

Instructor Profile

Women’s Wilderness Weekend is a course directed towards women of all ages to encourage more female participation in the field of bushcraft and survival.

This class is catered to students from all skill levels and no experience is required. Whether you are a proclaimed survivalist, a weekend bushcrafter, a homesteader, an ultralight hiker, or just a general every day woodswoman this class is designed to promote a sense of community through our shared love of nature.

Minors between the ages of 12 and 17 are welcome but must be accompanied by a female parent/guardian.

On Day 1 we will learn to take care of our immediate needs in wilderness survival as we discuss self-aid, fire, water and shelter.

Day 2 we will build on top of these skills as we explore wilderness living and make cordage, containers, fire and shelter entirely off the landscape. Other topics will include food procurement, self-defense, hygiene, and signaling for rescue.

This class is for participants who desire to both learn and grow, as well as how to develop a sense of resilience through self-reliance in both community and as individuals in the wild.

Look for the signs directing you to the second driveway on your right next to the large barn and blue dumpster. Pull in past the Welcome Sign and park at the entrance of the trail straight ahead.

Grab your gear and follow the signs to Basecamp located about 200 yards down the main trail beyond the red gate. This is where the majority of class instruction will be throughout the weekend.

Set up camp anywhere to the right (west) side of the main trail surrounding Basecamp. We suggest setting up further away from the main fire pit if you prefer to not hear possible late night fireside conversations.
