Queer Women's Vermont Classic Backpacking


Join us for our Queer Women’s Backpacking trip in Southern Vermont. This long weekend backpacking trip is led by queer women for queer women. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome and encourage trans, genderqueer, and non-binary folks to register for this trip.  If it sounds like the right adventure for you - it is!

Total beginners to seasoned backpackers will feel welcome and comfortable on this New England adventure. You’ll learn the foundational skills of packing, map reading, camp set-up, backcountry cooking, and get to  sleep under the stars!
