Two years ago someone said to me, "you need to teach lessons on how to be a badass feminist." We both laughed, but that request kept coming and our community kept growing and I found from spending quality time with the Boise Rad Fat Collective in real life that we are stronger together. That we are our own best teachers. That together we learn our voices our powerful, our bodies are amazing, and our spirits are courageous.
We held our first one in the summer of 2017 and I'm so excited to announce the 2nd annual RADCAMP: A Body Positive Boot Camp For Feminists in the beautiful mountain town of McCall, Idaho on August 3-5, 2018. The cabin is booked, the food will be delicious, the hot springs are waiting, the agenda is gearing up to be fun and radical and full of self-love.
WHAT IS RADCAMP ALL ABOUT?
Empowering women to be their own badass, an everyday hero, a radical feminist, a body image activist, an enlightened academic, a kinder person and a warrior for self-love. With a little bit of wine, laughter, swimming, art, relaxation, yoga, massage, meditation, education, books, hot springs, good food and fun mixed in. All food, beverages, accommodations, itinerary activities + swag and a book are included in the $219 registration fee.
WHO CAN ATTEND?
Registration is very limited (10) and open to members of the Boise Rad Fat Collective (which, by the way, is open to everyone regardless of size, age, nationality, religion, gender, ability and location - just ask for an add on Facebook). You do have to be at least 21-years-old to come to this camp, as we'll have alcohol on site and are staying two nights. RADCAMP is only open to women, due to the accommodations and subject matter.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THOSE ACCOMMODATIONS?
We'll be staying in a sweet family cabin Amy has rented near downtown McCall, Idaho, a quaint mountain town about 2.5 hours outside of Boise. In true old-school camp style, there are five single beds in one room, a queen, a king, a fold-out futon and a couple of couches. We'll be in close quarters and sharing bathrooms and kitchen duties as well (we'll be making our meals together as a way to celebrate food and community). It's going to be like a giant big girl slumber party all weekend. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the camp, although last year many of us carpooled together.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Once accepted to RADCAMP you'll receive more details from Amy, including a packing list & cabin details, but in general: yourself, your bathing suit, any personal items, any special food items, good walking/hiking shoes, a beach towel and an open-mind (please leave at home: all illegal drugs, firearms/weapons, pets and your kids). While I'll provide some beer, you can also BYOB. And some to share.
READY TO APPLY?
Sorry, we're all full for 2018! If you're not already, please join us in the Boise Rad Fat Collective on Facebook to find out more about the body positive events we hold all year long!
