Women’s Whitewater Weekend Getaway 2022

By Amanda Major

The 2022 Deerfield River Women’s Whitewater Weekend Getaway is going to be an event you will be reminiscing about for the rest of the summer. The opportunity to bask in the brilliance and joy of the Deerfield River women’s paddling community is reason enough to attend this event. There will be everything from kayak instruction and community paddles to an after party and camping at the excellent Foolhardy Hill. You can look forward to great food, yoga, music, trivia, and lots of laughter, fun, and connection.

Join Us For A Celebratory Paddle & Clinic!

During our time on the water together, we are holding a women’s celebratory community-led paddle. Zoar Outdoor Paddlesports is offering discounted kayaking clinics throughout the weekend for both newer paddlers and intermediate folks pushing their skills further.

Let Loose at Foolhardy Hill

After the on-water paddling, meet us at Foolhardy Hill for a night of celebrations, camping, and fun. We will have food from Tito’s Tacos, music, trivia, and the chance to win awesome prizes. This apres paddle event will be a great time to connect with other women from our community! For folks who are camping out at Foolhardy Hill, yoga and breakfast both Saturday and Sunday morning will bring us intentionally into our days of connection and community.

Women and non-binary folks are welcome and invited to attend the Women’s Whitewater Weekend Getaway event.

Hear From Our Community

Here are some reasons the women in our paddling community are excited about this women-specific event:

“Growing and deepening connections in my community feels very important to me at this moment in my life. I feel the strongest and most empowered when I am kayaking with other women. The support and encouragement received from other women on the water is so unique and awesome—I wish I could bottle it and bring it with me everywhere!”

“Usually when I paddle, I am the only woman in the group. I love my dude paddling friends, AND I am stoked to have the opportunity to steep in the vibes of the strong and epic women of the Deerfield River!”

“I am looking forward to meeting more people on the river, seeing more diversity in the sport, and being with the women I adore.”

“I am looking forward to being more intentional about including and welcoming women of all ages, especially middle-aged women—this is the sport for them!”

“I am excited to help more women find this sport and discover the magic and comradery that I have found.”

“I am thrilled to be around people and in community with other women, especially after long periods of COVID isolation.”

“I am most excited about having fun, being silly, sharing and celebrating our strengths, and giving lots of hugs.”

“I mostly want to hang out, paddle, and giggle with Janet!”
