For four days (three nights), 100+ women gather to disconnect from the busy-ness of life’s business and PLAY with other awesome people and a dozen of some of the world’s best experts.

These retreats unite women from all walks of life (many who would never in a million years have crossed paths) at top-notch kids’ summer camps for each long weekend of absolute wonderment.

What To Expect

Campers ages 21-80+ learn, grow, play and bunk* together to form an intergenerational, purpose-driven community of women who are bold enough to show up for themselves and for each other.

Like at kids’ summer camp, we facilitate authentic connections at the edge of the comfort zone, where our campers can lean into the safe haven and get real. Unlike kids’ summer camp, Campowerment features programming that will re-ignite your life by helping you see life through a new lens and provide tangible takeaways to support your leap from who you are now to who you want to be, now.

*Semi-private rooms available at some locations.

Each Camp Retreat, Women Find...
Access
This is more than an event or conference; it’s a community-building experience for all. Campowerment offers unadulterated access to the experts, who share not only takeaways + tools, but stories and experiences throughout each retreat.
Adventure
Bucket list: beware. Campowerment’s fun & games bring campers back to a time where fear is a far-fetched feeling, and courage is par for the (ropes) course.
Belonging
It’s true what they say: Camp friends are the best friends. Come as you are, leave as you want to be, with the tribe you choose to roll with, long beyond the campfire. Our campers are for each other, the way women are meant to be.
A nurturing environment
Healthy, delicious food fit for grown-ups and attention to every detail to make the experience comfy & transformative make our retreats a cut above the rest, so you can simply put YOU on the top of your to-do list!
FUN
Part of what makes the camp culture so uniquely transformative (for kids + adults alike) is the goofiness that instills a true sense of comfort and presence. Unadulterated joy is our specialty!

Every minute of every day

Every minute of every day I am thinking thoughts, making choices and living my life based on the learning and growth that I get from Campowerment.

Invest in yourself

The best investment in ME that I've made in a seriously long time.
Rebecca, New York, NY

Take a break

My family was fine while I was gone (and it was a really bad weekend for me to go with a soccer tournament for 3 children in 3 different NY Burroughs) but guess what: they were okay, and yours will be too.
Mychal, Westchester, NY

Find yourself

[I came to camp] to fill my desire to meet a smart, cool woman who would inspire me…I found her. She was me.
Carol, Los Angeles

Experience magic beyond words

No words or pictures could ever express what magic happens on those hills [at camp.] I received more than I ever could have known was possible.
Lauren, Chattanooga, TN

Find your breath

I saw my calling. I found my breath. I remembered who I really am when no one else is looking.
Karen, Los Angeles

Re-ignite your life in the space where dreams take off

Campowerment’s camp retreats for women take residence at sleepaway camp locales across the country (before/after the kids head home!). We sleep in shared cabins for some earth-shaking pillow talk and belly laughter.

The weekend schedule features holistic programming that rides from peaks of adventure and unexpected fun, to valleys of deep-diving conversations, meant to highlight the shared experiences of womanhood today.

At each retreat, we integrate experts — TED Talkers, best-selling authors, James Beard Award-winning chefs, TV personalities, and a rotating panel of thought leaders who share their wisdom in their sessions, then compete in relay races alongside you.

We do arts & crafts, awesome workouts, archery, yoga, meditation, competitive games (yes; pie eating is a sport), karaoke, campfires, dance parties, hikes and s’more.
