FAQs

Can Men Participate in Bold Betties Activities?

Bold Betties has the mission of connecting females (along any part of the spectrum) to take the intimidation out of adventure and to connect them with each other. Many women sign up for these events specifically because it encourages female bonding and community. We all love the supportive men in our lives, but typically only invite men and children to certain events and not by default.

Is there a minimum age to become a member of Bold Betties?

Yes! 18.

What is the typical age of participants in Bold Betties events?

We have Betties from all walks of life and all ages in our activities. Our youngest Betty is 18 years old and our oldest is 84. If you are older than 18 and a woman, you are in!

Do I need to be physically fit to join Bold Betties?

Absolutely not! Though there might be some experiences that we specifically require certain physical abilities, those are generally few. We are about taking intimidation out of adventure for every woman, every size, every ability and every age! Join us!

I have some ideas to enhance the Bold Betties experience. Who should I tell?

Great! We love hearing from fellow Bold Betties about how we can improve the overall experience and we welcome – and encourage – your feedback. Please send us an email or call 1-844-BETTIES.

Who is a Chapter Leader?

Chapter leaders are community leaders who want to volunteer to lead adventures for other women, build community, and - big picture - disrupt the status quo wherein husbands/boyfriends/dads are the primary instigators for exposure to the outdoors and adventure.

Who is an Alpha Betty?

Alpha Betties are also community leaders who want to volunteer to lead adventures for other women, but they are assisting the Chapter Leaders in selecting the adventures, organizing and leading those for their communities.

How do I become a Chapter Leader?

How do I become an Alpha Betty?

You first have to attend at least two Bold Betties events in your local chapter. You then need to connect with your local chapter leader and let her know of your interest. We put a great amount of trust in our chapter leaders and give them complete autonomy in selecting their Alpha Betties.
