Backpacking the Bridger Range - Ladies Only

Support from The Cairn Project will provide scholarships for half of the young women joining MOSS’s Ladies Only Backpacking course in July 2018. This funding will facilitate a more diverse and inclusive group of backpackers, and will help MOSS connect with local and statewide opportunities to extend outdoor education to less-served communities. Combining field science, basic outdoor skills, mentorship, and leadership curriculum, this transformative weeklong program pushes young women’s limits and fosters deep bonds – within the group, and with the natural landscape.
