About this Adventure...
WAIT... WHERE AM I???
Learn how to be independent! No need to follow your partner, they're just pretending they know where they are going anyway!
Join us outside for a day of getting un-lost. Learn how to orientate a map to the terrain around you, how to use a compass for something other than putting in your contacts, and tricks to figuring out your location on a map without a GPS.
By the end of the day you'll be able to find north without a compass (or GPS), match the terrain around you to the map, use a compass to orientate the map to north, and tell your friends what the squiggly lines on a topographical map mean!!! Phew, that is a lot to cover, but are we ever going to have fun!
Our partner on this adventure is Jenna Nodding from Get Outside Adventures! Besides being an all around incredible human being and adventurer, she is an ACMG Hiking Guide, she is certified by the Interpretative Guide Association, and has her Advanced Wilderness First Aid with CPR.

How are The Lady Alliance events different from other events?
The number one goal is to introduce you to other kick-ass, adventurous women. It’s all about building community! Our second goal is to introduce you to the outdoors. It’s quite the thing to witness, putting a group of women who are passionate about the outdoors in an epic location. We know it’s a cliche thing to say… but it’s where the magic happens.
Do you arrange transport to the event?
No, all transport to and from the event will be your responsibility unless stated otherwise. We will encourage you to join us on our Facebook group The Lady Alliance Community to help you plan your carpool rides!
When should I book my flight?
We have a minimum number of attendees for this trip to carry through. If you are booking a flight to the location of this event please hold off booking until we have confirmed with you that the minimum number has been reached. Be sure to book a day that allows you to get there before the arrival date and time!
Is food included?
Yes. Unless otherwise specified in the trip itinerary or information.
Is there a minimum age for this event?
Unless otherwise mentioned, 19+ for all events in Canada. 21+ for all events in the USA.
I want to book with friends. How do I do that?
The best way is to add all of the tickets to one cart, that way you know if we have enough spaces.
I'm coming solo. Is that okay?
YES! More than 70% of women who sign up for our trips, sign up solo.
Is a deposit required to secure my place?
Deposits, or full payments, vary trip by trip. Payment prior to the trip is needed to secure your place.
What if I need to cancel?
Please let us know as soon as possible. Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds but you can transfer your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the nature of The Lady Alliance retreats, we don’t offer refunds. We do, however, offer transfers. You are responsible for finding someone to transfer your ticket to and arranging the exchange of funds for your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.
Who will be managing our trip?
One or two of our awesome chapter coordinators will be running your retreat!
Do I have to join in on all the activities?
No. You are not required to join in on all the activities. You can still join us on the retreat, the ticket price remains the same. You do you!
What if the weather doesn't cooperate?
Let’s be honest, Mother Nature never cooperates. That’s why we love her. Keep an eye on the forecast and pack accordingly. We never let uncooperative weather ruin our fun!
I have another question...
