Fairfax County Park AuthorityThe Fairfax County Park Authority is offering an outdoor getaway for women very close to home.

The park authority’s “Women Unplugged” Weekend is Sept. 3 and 4.

Here’s the deal: Participants in the program, which runs from 8 a.m. Saturday to 2 p.m. Sunday, will kayak from Algonkian Park to Riverbend Park and have an outdoor dinner with a bonfire. Bring a tent and spend the night under the stars or “camp out” in the FCPA Nature Center.

On Sunday, participants will explore birds, edible plants, and learn to shoot a bow and arrow.

Cost is $200; most meals included.
