Fireside's Artemis - Women in Leadership Adventure Series (Mom's Getaway Camp)

Run by Fireside Adventures Summer Camps and Expeditions

Fireside’s Artemis - Women In Leadership Yukon Expedition

Imagine the feeling of your hand dipping into the Yukon River as you take 11 days to prepare and navigate, by canoe, over 400km of pure Canadian adventure, from Carmacks to Dawson City. Both the river and paddle experience are immense, beautiful and memorable. You and your fellow adventurers will take a step back in time and explore some of the places where the gold rush captured so many hearts and souls while sleeping under the Aurora Borealis at night.

Sign up for Fireside’s Artemis Women In Leadership Yukon Expedition where you have the space and place needed to focus on your own personal growth, interests and curiosities whilst having the opportunity to further develop your outdoor leadership skills, become confident in your Yukon river canoe paddling and connect with women like yourself. Artemis programs, through excellent instruction in outdoor leadership skills, share the gifts of the wilderness with people of all colours, abilities, backgrounds, sizes, gender identities and experience levels.

Expedition Food
A well-nourished body makes a significant impact on a person’s experience in times of physical and/or mental exertion. Participants will learn how to pack for and prepare meals on extended backcountry trips, and how to cook in a “wilderness” kitchen. While on trip we will nourish our bodies with healthy and holistic foods suited to all diets.

Expedition Safety
It is safer to travel in a group and it is much safer to have guides supporting you regardless of your comfort and outdoor skill level. Our team puts a lot of effort into planning, preparing and most importantly, teaching you how to be safe in the wilderness.
