A few 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 3rd annual RADCAMP: A Body Positive Boot Camp For Feminists in the beautiful mountain town of Donnelly, Idaho on Lake Cascade August 2-4, 2019. 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 (including your admission to the hot springs!) + some really sweet swag and a fantastic book are included in the $300 registration fee. (Also: check out this time we were featured in FabUplus magazine and also on the news!)
WHO CAN ATTEND?
Registration is very limited (12) and only 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 in a private secluded property on Lake Cascade, Idaho, in the quaint mountain town of Donnelly less than 2 hours outside of Boise. In true old-school camp style, we'll be in close quarters and sharing bathrooms and a few minor kitchen duties together as a way to celebrate food and community. We’ll be sharing queen beds and a few of us on air mattresses and couches and in the same rooms. It's going to be like a giant big girl slumber party all weekend long (two nights and nearly three days). You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the camp, although last year many of us carpooled together. We have unlimited access to the water and a fire pit and a perfect forested landscape for yoga & meditations with Jenn of Zen Riot. It’s pretty dreamy.
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).
APPLICATIONS CLOSED! WATCH THIS SPACE FOR RADCAMP 2020 INFORMATION IN JANUARY.
