Exhilarating. Breathtaking. Even serene. That's how you might describe the All Women Sports Camp up at Lake Tahoe August 10-12. It's a three day event that brings in professional athletes into the natural beauty of Lake Tahoe to create the ideal teaching environment for women looking to get into outdoor sports. Inger Norman created the event last year. "We start with yoga and then everybody runs off and we're doing sports nutrition, sports psychology, bike fit, bike maintenance. The afternoon after lunch is more of the active segment. Ladies sign up and learn how to mountain bike, to get better at their road cycling skills."

Inger has been in the outdoor sports marketing industry for 15 years and decided women needed a way to be introduced to, or get better at, outdoor sports. So she compiled professionals and experts in the sports of cycling, mountain biking, triathlon, stand up paddling, rock climbing and yoga to teach seminars. All total, there's 22 clinics offered during the three day camp. And each session lends itself to the others. "Running efficiency applies to runners and triathletes, bike fit bike maintenance applies to mountain bikers, road cyclists and triathletes. There's so much cross information that the women can share."

She had 45 women sign up last year and she's expecting more than 60 this year. Still small enough groups to have a semi-private lesson with a world class athlete in the sports of your choice. And keep in mind, this isn't a competitive camp. Women of all skill levels are welcome, even beginners. The All Women Sports Camp is a chance to learn from the best and enjoy the newly named best lake in America.
