Explorer Chick Wild is an inspiring weekend dedicated to that inner Wild residing in all Women! You’ll gather with dozens of rad chicks for a women-only weekend of mountaintop camping, endless adventures, whitewater rafting, and more!

It all goes down at the exclusive Explorer Chick Mountaintop Camp on the Ace Adventure Resort property. You’ll bring your camping gear to share a space with perfect strangers (but not for long!).

It’s just a short drive from Explorer Chick Camp to limitless adventure in the New River Gorge including lakes, rivers, rock faces, hiking, and mountain bike trails. Ace Adventure Resort is home to miles of hiking and mountain biking trails for you to explore.

We kick off the weekend on Thursday with check-in’s, taking time to set up your camp, and commencing Wild with a Welcome Dinner.

Friday is your Free Day! You’ll have the option to add Half Day and Full Day guided adventures including rock climbing, kayaking, SUP, boating, caving, and ziplining. Got your own gear and expertise? Then meet up with other Explorer Chicks to embark on your own adventures in the New River Gorge!

On Friday evening we’ll have an inspiring speaker share her story with the Explorer Chicks while we chow down on dinner (Speaker to TBA).

On Saturday morning Explorer Chicks take to the New River for an adrenaline pumping full day whitewater rafting adventure! The New River won’t know what hit it when boats loaded full of Explorer Chicks go head to head with Stage 5 Rapids! Bring it on!

We’ll share our final meal together on Saturday night to watch our rafting movie (starring you!) and reliving our rafting adventure!

Sunday is the saddest day of the weekend, departure. We’ll pack up camp, share hugs, and say our, “See you laters!” You’ll also have one last opportunity to add Morning Half Day Optional Adventures.

All weekend, you’ll have access to the Wonderland Waterpark, ACE’s inflatable water park located on the property. In one word: Blob! It’s what childhood summer camp dreams are made of!

Each night you’ll retell stories around a raging bonfire with your newest friends! (S’mores included!)
