The Desert Dose empowers women through transformative outdoor adventure and bike retreats. Using outdoor adventures as a catalyst for growth and embedding positive mindset tools, The Desert Dose creates a supportive and safe space to stretch outside comfort zones and challenge oneself. Through these shared experiences, women forge new relationships and foster connections. Combining these key ingredients, The Desert Dose creates a pathway for women to become the best version of themselves.
This immersive, one-of-a-kind retreat includes the unique combinations of outdoor adventure skills and instruction, embedding positive mindset tools, community-building and adult summer camp-esque fun.
Retreat days begin at basecamp with a cup of joe in-hand and a nourishing breakfast. Ease into the morning with community-building, and then shift to bike skills and games sessions where they embed mindset tools. Take a break midday to recharge with a community lunch break.
In the afternoons, the group will adventure together on trail or on water: enjoy iconic hikes with a local guide, trail ride to improve your bike skills, stand up paddle board (SUP) along the Colorado River or try SUP yoga. Each day wraps up with a trail/riverside talk and debrief. Retreats are accessible to all skill levels and welcome new adventurers. Back at basecamp, participants have free time to unwind, share a delicious community dinner and gather around the campfire for reflections and shenanigans before hitting the hay. Then, do it all over again! These intimate retreats are capped at 12 to foster deeper relationships and meaningful connection.
At The Desert Dose, they believe in the power of you, in a positive mindset to stretch comfort zones, in connecting with others and time outdoors, in support systems, in practice and in play, and in fun and being a little ridiculous.
