Ladies, let's talk about camping! If you love the outdoors like Rae does, but have never been sure about sleeping outside, join us for a hands-on exploration of what this could look like! We'll set up a tent, complete with basic amenities, and talk about the pros and cons of ground-dwelling. We'll also set up a camping hammock together with its comfort amenities, and explore sleeping in trees! (Take note - this is NOT your backyard hammock!) In addition to learning how to set up and take down basic equipment, we will discuss the realities of various camping sites. Whether you are completely at ease doing your business in the bushes or count flush toilets and hot showers as must-haves, you can design your own enjoyable camping experience. Bring all of your questions, a folding chair and a sense of adventure! See you outdoors!
