Sponsorship Opportunities

In 2011, the Trail Dames hosted The Summit, the first hiking and backpacking conference ever to be held dedicated solely to supporting outdoor women. Trail Dames’ Summit is the only conference of its kind in the USA. Seminars, classes, panel discussions, travel documentaries, sunrise yoga sessions, and many other events are presented by some of the most experienced outdoor women in the country. We are already working on details for the 2018 Summit sponsorship and will be open opportunities for sponsorship January 2017. In the meantime, please help us celebrate and thank the sponsors for the 2016 Summit! We could not have done it without you!!!
