Our mission at GET:OUTDOORS WOMEN ON THE WATER is to offer women an encouraging, supportive environment to learn how to kayak on flat water and beyond.
Our goals are to give women an opportunity to UNPLUG but RECHARGE through kayaking, kayak camping skills and basic YOGA while immersing them in nature and teaching women how to be more aware of the natural world surrounding them. We encourage women to disengage and detox from our increasingly connected but disconnected society, to recharge the batteries of their body, mind, and spirit. We strive to be a teaching mechanism, to teach women safety first, while they discover the joys of nature and gain the independence to get outdoors on their own and experience nature in an empowered way. We give women the opportunity to learn basic survival skills and to learn how to be more comfortable in nature and eventually in wilderness areas if they so desire. We aim to empower women through kayaking to embrace the healing, rejuvenating effects that nature brings us when we allow it and when we learn how to access those gifts. We like to think of our programming as nature rehab for the overcommitted, overstressed and overstimulated. We hope to spend time with you on the water and in the woods soon!

The weather is always a factor that demands attention when going out on the water. Kayaking is a very versatile activity; if you're prepared it's easy to enjoy the mystical atmosphere provided by light rain or cloud cover. Decisions to cancel trip due to weather (thunder/lightning) will be made at the location of the paddle only.
