Spend three days with rad women camping in Big Bear.  Big Bear offer amazing lake views, crisp air, and spectacular hiking.  Stay in the tent we provide and sleep on the best cots you have ever met.   You hike among the pines, do art at camp and practice yoga. Expect a non-judgmental and safe space for women of all backgrounds to come together to connect with themselves, each other and the outdoors.

Big Bear Womens Retreat

You will devour delicious food, practice yoga with a certified instructor, enjoy moderate hiking, opportunity to unplug, and bask in the great outdoors with other awesome women.

We set up the entire camp for you.  Just show up with your sleeping bag and clothes and we take care of the rest.  We have professional staff who will guide our hikes, yoga and help you create memorable art while at camp.

Just being in the presence of other authentic women was the best therapy I have gotten in a long time. You can really tap into yourself and other women's wisdom in this setting.  I got way more than I expected or paid for this weekend. Truly life changing!

It is easy to feel run-down when on a trip, but Valerie has a great skill at coordinating retreats! It was the perfect balance of free time and scheduled activities - well organized and perfectly scheduled.

You should advertise how incredibly comfortable the cots are! I was shocked that I got the best sleep I have gotten in a long time, and I have a super expensive bed!  Maybe, I will replace it with a cot.
