Spend a weekend with the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park where you can go to unplug, to get away, to learn new skills and to enjoy the company of other course participants. Trade in your computer, cell phone, Instagrams, clocks, schedules and work-jargon for an off-the-grid weekend with the girls – two days of pure unadulterated fun and education! Join Pam and Robin on hikes, yoga practice, meditation, basic navigation and desert survival. This weekend of classes will be held at the Lost Horse Campsite, a beautiful location that is perfect for this program! Camping is optional, but highly recommended. 5 Reasons Why Every Woman Needs a Girls Weekend.  

Camping Option:  As we will drive right to the campground, this is considered “car camping”.  All of your equipment can be unloaded right at the campsite.  So you don’t have to worry about carrying your tent or cooler any distances! So, pack any equipment to make your weekend stay comfortable and easy.  You will need to provide your own meals and cooking equipment.   Camping equipment can be rented from local outfitters.  Please call 760-367-5535 for more information.  We are here to answer your questions!
