About Roam the Woods

At Roam, we believe in the “Hike your own Hike” philosophy. We bring an informal classroom to the outdoors, teaching you basic skills to enjoy the backcountry safely and confidently. A trip in the woods should be a nice backpacking vacation. Our mission is to provide high quality, economically-conscious, women-focused backpacking courses. Utilizing the wilderness, participants build on and continue to develop self-reliance and confidence in a non-judgmental, supportive group setting. At Roam we learn by doing, slowly building up responsibility as group and individual confidence levels increase. We believe this is your experience and the energy you put in will be a direct result of what is gained from any course with our program.
