We'll be back at Camp Scully again! Make plans to join us for an exciting weekend near Albany, NY.
Join us for three or four wonderful days of fun, laughing and learning as we bring women together to sing and play, to make new friends and cherish their old ones, from all across the country. Whether you hike, bike, kayak, swim, gaze at the birds or at the stars, paint, play the ukulele or drum or you name it, sing, start campfires from scratch, scale walls, write or read, the Women Outdoors Gathering has something for almost everyone.
From its inception, over forty years ago, Women Outdoors has sponsored an annual Gathering for all members. Join us this summer at our new home since 2020.
Camp Scully is located on Snyder’s Lake in North Greenbush, approximately 10 miles from Albany and Troy in New York.
We'll have exclusive use of the entire facility, with RV, tent, cabin, and cottage options. For those not in a cottage, there are central bath houses with showers, toilets, and hot water.

We will be continuing our new Pitch-in tradition for this year's Gathering. We are renting the campus, but there is no staff, so we will be handling things and providing all services for ourselves, including activities, food service, meal cleanup, taking out trash as needed, etc. We will be able to keep our operating costs much lower than prior years, and will be passing the savings on to attendees by keeping fees as low as possible.
In return, we will be asking everyone to pitch in with one or more tasks that best suits their interest and capabilities. When you register, we'll ask how you can help make this a successful Gathering.
Food/Meals - Help out in the kitchen

Activities will be led by volunteers among us, as part of our Pitch-In program. The camp has hiking and paddling opportunities and space for indoor and outdoor activities.
Off-campus there are nearby waterfall hikes and biking trails.
