For four days (three nights), 125+ 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, in every area of growth.
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.
Campers ages 21-80 learn, connect and grow, in the spirit of the campfire. Together we become a new and unique extension of 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. 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 to who you want to be, starting now.
*Private rooms may be available by request
Re-ignite your life in the space where dreams take off
Campowerment’s Classic Camps 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.

- Experience: Am I able to speak to someone at Campowerment to learn more?
- Food & Bev: What’s the food like at a Classic Camp?
For us, fresh food is a big deal! At camp, we offer fresh food, prepared daily and suited for all dietary preferences you share in registration. For each meal – served buffet-style – there are protein options, something for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free eaters who give us the heads up to be ready for you!
Each meal is paired with a full salad bar and yummy dessert, too. Plus – in addition to meals, there are snacks and coffee/tea available throughout the full retreat.
Should you crave a highly specific addition to a meal-based diet (i.e. you are a soda drinker and don’t want to go the weekend without a daily Diet Coke), please feel free to BYO. Have questions? Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

- People: Who goes to Campowerment’s retreats for women?
Our campers range in age from 21* to 83 (for real) and they take planes, trains & automobiles from all ends of the globe (U.S., Canada, UK, France, Australia, New Zealand). About 54% of them are repeat campers; 46% are first-timers.
Some are top Hollywood executives; others recent college grads; USPS employees; entrepreneurs; police officers; thrill-seekers; full-time moms; first-time managers; bloggers and beyond.
Actually, it’s kind of the best networking on the planet: because nobody** is allowed to say what she does for a living for the first 24 hours, so we get real personal, real quick! Will you fit in? Yes: promise.
*All campers must be 21 of age or older
**Except the experts
- People: Can I come alone?
Absolutely! And about 20% do. When you come solo, we bunk you with the other brave souls who are doing the same, and it’s a hoot!
