Join the Outdoorsing Club
Discover our FREE events hosted by The Outdoorsing Club, crafted and led by experienced female outdoor leaders. Whether you feel inspired to hike a mountain, find your balance on a paddleboard, or take a stroll through epic woodland; ACAI’s Outdoorsing events are opportunities to venture into nature with like-minded women.
Women who get outdoors, feel better about their bodies*
Research shows just two hours in nature every week increases a woman’s happiness. And women who spend time outdoors are more likely “to experience positive body image”.
It’s against this backdrop ACAI created The Outdoorsing Club to inspire women across the UK to experience new adventures. So why not join our ACAI Adventurers, alongside other like-minded women, for a free, organised opportunity to get a boost from Mother Nature?
