The BettiesExplore! program generally includes any hiking, horseback riding, exploring, or ropes course adventures. In the past we have visited Tryon Creek State Park, Mount Tabor, the challenge course at OES, and Opal Creek. A collection of between 10 and 20 girls and 6 or more women forge strong relationships while they develop their outdoors skills together. As a group the participants learn backcountry safety techniques and map / compass skills, and participate in team-building and goal-setting exercises. All of this is working toward the central mission of Betties360: to inspire confidence, well being, and community in under-represented girls through action sports, outdoor adventures and life-skill education.
