Event description
Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership are organising a Women in the Outdoors programme in Kerry starting on Saturday 5th March.

About this event

Kerry Recreation & Sports Partnership in conjunction with Sport Ireland Outdoors and Munster Technological University (MTU )are organising a Women in the Outdoors programme.

This 3 month programme will start on Saturday 5th of March and will continue until the end of May.

The central aim of the programme is to support women in developing their leadership skills in the outdoors and to increase their confidence in being in the outdoors. The idea is to encourage women who might be nervous about going for hikes/hill walks to gain confidence and have greater access to outdoor physical activity in a fun & supportive way!

This programme is aimed at women who are over the age of 18 yrs old who are new to hiking/walking/navigating and have a reasonable basic level of fitness. Participants will be given more information about the activities as the programme progresses over the months.

Programme Content and Dates:

-Saturday 5th March: Meet and Greet Activity Day in the Tralee Bay Wetlands (wildlife walk and talk/ team games and 'try a climb' on the climbing wall)

-Tuesday 8th March: Introduction to Forest Bathing (Online via Zoom)

Forest Bathing is a health and wellness practice that supports participants to relieve stress, to be in the present moment, create awareness for their natural environment and to connect to their senses.

-Saturday 26th March: Forest Bathing in Killarney National Park

-Saturday 2nd April Introduction to hiking prog (day 1)
