Fall Retreat


Moab, UT October 20-23

We are excited for SheLift to be hitting the desert trails of Moab, UT for our Fall Retreat! Join us for 3 nights and 4 days as we rappel canyons, hike arches and explore the desert sanctuary of Moab. This retreat will challenge girls to take a leap of faith (literally) as we push our limits to new and intentionally uncomfortable extremes. Our activities will be guided by our friends and experienced staff Moab Cliff and Canyons. No desert retreat would be complete without glamping! For this trip, we'll be staying at Under Canvas Moab where girls will be rooming in state of the art canvas tents with REAL beds!  Nutritious and healthy meals will be served throughout the weekend - s'mores not excluded!
