WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF REGISTRATION?

HOW DO I GET THERE? WILL THERE BE A WAY TO COORDINATE CAR POOLS? WILL THERE BE A BUS?
While we are unable to provide transportation to the campgrounds from DC we will be helping co-ordinate carpools via a public Google Doc. On this document you can post if you plan to drive your own car (or rent a car) and how many spots you have available for fellow wild women. If you do not have access to a car you sign yourself up for available spots.
If you are planning to rent a car, ZipCar is helping by giving some discounts. Apply for the WithLoveDC business account at www.zipcar.com/withlovedc. Use discount code "intothewild16" to waive the $35 application fee.
ARE TRANS WOMEN WELCOME? AM I TOO OLD TO COME? WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

This event is for all women, of all backgrounds, of all races, of all religions. We aim to create a space for all women to share their love and their wisdom.

YES! Children are more than welcome to come to the gathering. That being said, please note that there will be no formal child-care throughout the weekend.
IS THIS EVENT ACCESSIBLE TO THE DEAF COMMUNITY?
YES! We will have interpreters at every single scheduled event so that the entire weekend will be open to both hearing and Deaf women. If you have sign up for an add-on service, please make sure to contact us if you require an ASL interpreter for your session.
CAN I TEACH?
The first set of official presenters is set for the year. That being said we hope to have an entirely new set of women teach every single year as we feel strongly that EVERY woman has something to offer and wisdom to share.
WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
The entire weekend will be scheduled to allow you to engage and connect and learn and share and grow. The magic women
will each be planning at least one class or workshop that will be offered between Friday evening and Sunday night. View the tentative schedule here. You may choose to attend any or all of the classes.
Additionally you can sign up for some option add-on workshops and services when you arrive. You can find the list of add-on offerings here.
If you choose to skip a class you may go hiking, go swimming, meditate, chat with an old friend, make a new friend, write, draw, meditate, sing, dance, or hug a tree. The entire weekend is about creating space for yourself. This means listening in, engaging when you wish to engage and finding solitude when you need to find solitude.
I AM A CREATIVE. CAN I SELL MY ART/JEWELRY/BOOKS/POEMS/POTTERY/QUILTS/OTHER AWESOME STUFF?
YES! We are super excited to announce that on Sunday afternoon we will be having a MARKET PLACE! All participants are encouraged to bring their art/jewelry/books/goodies/etc. for an open market. Everyone will have the opportunity to set up shop and display their goods. You can buy or barter so that everyone can take home a souvenir (or two, or three, or four) from the weekend while also supporting some really awesome women creators.
CAN I GET A REFUND?
We understand that plans change! If you are no longer able to attend you may request a refund through the Eventrbite website. Full refunds can be given until September 15, at which point we may offer a 50% refund on your registration. After September 30 no refunds will be granted.

I DON'T WANT TO SHARE A BED/I DO WANT TO SHARE A BED: HOW DO I DO THIS?
