Get Wild with Explorer Chick in West Virginia

2021 West Virginia Wild Weekend with Explorer Chick

It’s that time of year again! Explorer Chick Adventure Co. is hosting their 5th Annual West Virginia Wild Weekend, an inspiring getaway dedicated to that inner “wild” residing in all women, on June 17-20, 2021. 

The itinerary is set, and you can book to gather with dozens of rad chicks for a packaged up trip with mountaintop camping, whitewater rafting, inspiring keynote speakers, and loads of a-la-carte adventures you can customize in one women-only weekend in the New River Gorge, West Virginia. Oh, and you can expect the signature Explorer Chick SHE-nanigans!

Even if you’re nervous about whitewater rafting or new to camping, there’s no reason to worry. Explorer Chick has geared Wild towards ALL women – whether you’ve never set up a tent in your life or can pop up camp faster than a pit crew. And guess what? If you’re new to rafting, you’ll be surrounded by an overly supportive sisterhood of other new rafters and seasoned rafters. Plus, Explorer Chick Guides will be around all weekend to help you with tent set up, what to wear rafting, or any other questions that pop up.

On Friday evening, Explorer Chick will have the inspiring Khadijah Diggs sharing her story, while everyone chows down on dinner. Khadijah is a Mother, Project Manager, and a Team USA and Silver Ironman All-World Triathlete. She’s also the first African-American woman to be a member of the U.S. Long Course Triathlon Team and the first Hijabi to represent the U.S. in any Multisport event. Her goal is to open dialogue and connect women of all backgrounds on a personal level by sharing common experiences, joys, and struggles through healthy living, group training, and healthy competition. 

“I have learned traveling all over the country and the world to race, that, at the core, we are more the same than different. The struggles of motherhood and just being female are universal, and it binds us as women,” says Diggs.

Explorer Chick takes away the awkwardness with plenty of activities throughout the weekend to help you make new friends.
