SheJumps and The Mountaineers are pleased to present Wild Skills Day again this year - a free day camp for young girls (age 6-12) to learn the skills they need for outdoor adventuring. You can read more about this exceptional experience from Wild Skills Director Christy Pelland. We still have a few spots left to join us in Tacoma on June 8, 2019.

SheJumps events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges, and think creatively. These outdoor experiences help develop perseverance and foster confidence, skills which can be carried forward in all aspects of life.


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 and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace, and shelter building. 

Our goal is to see girls learning, having fun, and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support. We want this to be a day they will remember - one to spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and teach them that they are capable of anything!
