FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pasadena, CA. – AdventurUs Women is pleased to announce the return of the AdventurUs Women Escapes after a successful first year in 2019 and a pause in 2020 due to COVID. The all-inclusive, multi-sport adventure weekends are designed to provide welcoming, affirming spaces to explore new places, learn new skills, make new friends, and connect with nature. AdventurUs Women welcomes participants of all gender identities and expressions who feel that a women’s retreat is the right space for them.
The 2021 Escapes have adapted to provide a smaller intimate event experience meeting the needs of women to get outdoors for their physical and mental well-being while taking into account CDC considerations for events and gatherings. In addition to implementing new COVID event protocols, two new fantastic venues have been added this year to limit travel and provide closer-to-home opportunities for attendees. Generous cancellation policies allow women to book with confidence. More information can be found on the FAQ page.
The all-inclusive weekends will take place at:
- LOGE Camps in Bend, OR – May 13-16, 2021
- A-Lodge in Boulder, CO – June 24-27, 2021
- Mulberry Gap Adventure Basecamp in Ellijay, GA – September 23-26, 2021
Multi-sport activities vary by location but may include the following options depending on the selected weekend:
- Trail Running
- Mountain Biking
- Stand-Up Paddleboarding
- Rock Climbing
- Wilderness Survival Skills
Prior to the pandemic, wellness travel was gaining in popularity. The Wellness Tourism Association had seen an increase in wellness travel and noted the Global Wellness Institute predicted the wellness tourism sector would reach close to $1 trillion U.S. on a global level by the year 2020.
The AdventurUs Women Escapes are perfect for women interested in getaways supporting a healthy lifestyle and personal growth. The Escapes are unique in the wellness travel space because they provide women of all experience levels the chance to try multiple outdoor activities over one weekend focused on both their outdoor journey and inner journey. The Escapes are a perfect combination of outdoor exploration in beautiful locations while eating great food, connecting with other women, and staying at properties designed for outdoor enthusiasts.
“Our goal is to empower women by providing opportunities to learn new outdoor skills from women guides and experience the fun and community that comes with attending an all womens’ event.” said AdventurUs Women Founder & CEO, Saveria Tilden. “Now, more than ever, women need a place where they can relax and let someone else take care of all the planning and logistics that go into a weekend of outdoor adventure. We provide all the technical gear, guides, lodging, food, and beverages so that women can just show up and focus on the experience. The ONLY prerequisite is to have an open mind and want to spend time outdoors.”
The 2019 Outdoor Participation Report published by the Outdoor Industry Association showed that a large majority of outdoor participants, 73.4 percent were Caucasian and while outdoor participation by women is increasing it still falls behind men at 46.1 percent. AdventurUs Women recognizes that these numbers need to change and is committed to actively supporting getting women outdoors and specifically BIPOC women.
