Gdaiva is hosting a nutritional bootcamp, exploring the culinary arts of foraging and fishing, designed for women.
Camp friendly dogs and kids are welcome too, and you can tag a man along!  The emphasis is harmony, not conquest.
Boot Campers will get to gather their sustenance and ingredients.
They will leave with a treasure chest of nutritional goodies for reminiscing.
You will learn the hows and whys of nose to tail eating; making caviar, salmon liver pate, collagen rich delicious broths, fermented lemon ceviche, varieties of smoked salmon, and how to cook fresh salmon fillets deliciously with beach wood.
There will be herbal walks, sauna parties, barefoot beach yoga, and fishing outings.
It is a nutritional and culinary cornucopia, combined with a good, old fashioned, Alaskan fishing trip. Kalgin Island is away the buzz of activity that predominates other locals, and the lodge is on the beach, where a salmon stream enters the ocean.
You are going to come away with a brand new appreciation of the bounty of the natural riches that surround us, knowing how to let them in as part of your life force.
