Oakland County Parks and Recreation invites women ages 18 and older to experience nature and build relationships at the Women’s 24-Hour Experience, Sept. 18-19 at Addison Oaks County Park, which is located about 45 minutes northwest of Detroit.

“Women can spend the weekend with friends; meet new people; learn outdoor skills; and participate in fun activities,” Recreation Program Supervisor Derenda Howard said. “This is always a fun weekend for women to get together and play outdoors.”

Women are immersed in nature while participating in recreation and teambuilding activities, including: mountain biking, geocaching and paddling. Women also partake in nature exploration and nighttime activities, including: camping 101, campfire gourmet, stargazing, nighttime safari, rhythm circle, fireside storytelling and campfire party.

Cost is $75/person and includes all fees, equipment, instruction and food.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own tent, sleeping bag, pillow and a food item to add to the community soup pot for dinner.

The experience begins on Saturday at 10 a.m. and concludes on Sunday at 10 a.m.

Pre-registration and payment are required by Friday, Sept. 17. To register, visit the Events Calendar on DestinationOakland.com.

My family (wife and three kids, sometimes the dog) and I have been RV campers since 2007. We own a 2000 Trail-Lite B22 Bantam hybrid, our tow vehicle is a 2006 Trailblazer LT EXT (5.3 V8 with 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio), and our setup includes the Equalizer sway controller. Looking to upgrade the camper in the near future, but until then we get out 2-3 times a month in season.
