Overnight Event Offers Summer Camp Experience
Women who never had the opportunity to get away to summer camp – or want to experience it again - have the chance to attend a concentrated camp experience during the Women of the Wild (WOW) overnight camp, presented by Clark County Parks and Recreation, Saturday and Sunday May 18 and 19 at Camp Lee Canyon, located in the Toiyabe National Forest about 45 minutes northwest of Las Vegas. Cost for the overnight camp is $25, and it includes all activities, Dutch oven dinner and pancake breakfast. Space is limited to 30 participants.
The women-only overnight camp includes all activities commonly associated with childhood summer camps including archery, high ropes challenge course, day and night hikes, Dutch oven cooking, crafts, mountain biking, fly fishing, campfires, movies and more. Participants can choose which activities they would like to attend. Other than the dinner and breakfast meals provided, campers are responsible for their own food, snacks and bedding. Minors are welcome to participate as long as they’re accompanied by a parent or guardian who also is registered for the camp experience.
Those interested in the Women of the Wild camp experience can call (702) 455-1905. Registration is available in person at Mountain Crest Community Center, 4701 N. Durango Drive at Lone Mountain Road or online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/parksregistration.
