Women's Wellness Weekends at Berkshire Outdoor Center are relaxing and rejuvenating opportunities for women of all ages and backgrounds to converge on the beautiful Berkshires. Celebrate in trying new things, relaxing with old favorites and making friends with other women in a fantastic, supportive community. Women's Wellness Weekend can be an all-out active outdoor sports weekend for some, with an early morning run, a moonlight snowshoe hike or an afternoon of cross-country skiing. For others it is a quiet, calm and spiritual weekend of yoga, meditation, knitting by the fire and a professional massage. Women's Wellness Weekend can also be a creative opportunity to explore your 'left brain' in engaging, creative activities, such as painting, drawing with charcoal, cooking and dance. For most women, the weekend is a combination of all of these options, and more.

Women's Wellness Weekend at Berkshire Outdoor Center attracts several hundred women every year. Our three Women's Wellness Weekends explore different activities, and no two are ever the same!



Winter Women's Wellness Weekend

Held in January and February, these winter weekend opportunities for women are outdoors-focused, with cross-country skiing, snow-shoe hiking, ice skating on our gorgeous natural ponds and downhill tubing on our modest tubing hill. But the outdoor focus does not mean that this is all we offer. In our most recent winter weekend for women, we also offered drum-circle, puppet-making, yoga, cheese-making, life-coaching and nutrition, to name just a few activities. Learn more about our Winter Women's Wellness Weekends.

Fall Foliage Women's Wellness Weekend

Spend a prime foliage weekend with friends in the beautiful Berkshires. This Fall Women's Wellness Weekend is outdoors-focused and includes a healthy dose of hiking, canoeing and kayaking opportunities. Try your hand at archery, or spend your day learning felting, creating your own fall and winter recipes with our Food Service Director and nutritionists, relax by the fire and warm your toes, sipping on a hot chocolate (or a glass of wine) and making new friends. Gaze at the clear night skies in our astronomy classes, or learn to paint, draw and craft. The biggest challenge this Women's Wellness Weekend will be deciding what activities not to do!
