Are You Ready To Get Outside?

Sharing our experiences since 2016


Our mission at Get Outside is to empower others to explore the outdoors, challenge themselves, learn new skills, and have fun doing it.

We focus on getting women out exploring, connecting, and growing. The Get Outside experience doesn’t end with the adventure, rather, that’s where it begins.


We see a future filled with adventure, community support, and a whole lot of laughter. We want to see more women outside in leadership roles, inspiring other women to do the same. We believe it is our responsibility as locals, leaders, and adventurers to maintain an active social conscience. We are committed to supporting the outstanding community around us. We hope you will feel the same!
