WOMEN’S “GET-AWAY” WEEKEND w/ Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park
Spend a weekend with the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park, where you can go to unplug, getaway, learn new skills, and enjoy the company of other course participants.

Trade-in your computer, cell phone, Instagram, clocks, schedules, and workplace jargon for an off-the-grid weekend with the girls – two days of pure unadulterated fun and education! Join Pam and Robin in learning about camping, camp cooking, hiking, journaling, and yoga while enjoying Joshua Tree National Park. This weekend of classes will be held at the Lost Horse Campsite, a beautiful location perfect for this program! They will also be traveling to trails at times, so you will need access to your car.
