Ladies, here’s your chance to enjoy a relaxing weekend getaway on the lake and in the woods. For the past 25 years, women of all ages and abilities have invaded Camp Sweyolakan on the weekend after Labor Day for our annual Women’s Retreat.
Our trained camp staff will provide programs and assist you. Overnight accommodations are rustic, yet delightful. Restrooms and showers are near sleeping shelters, and yes, there is hot water and electricity in the restrooms! Meals are made from scratch and snacks are provided.
You set the pace for your weekend. The registration fee includes classic camp activities, including kayaking, hiking, canoeing, crafts, challenge courses, the Big Swing, swimming, archery, singing and games. You’ll also find fun things like massages, yoga and a silent auction, as well as mini-classes on specialized crafts such as board painting and hors d'oeuvres making. Some activities require additional fees.
Arrive early on Friday and enjoy lunch and a relaxing day of settling in. While limited activities will be available, it is a great chance to reconnect with friends and enjoy the peace and quiet before the weekend gets rolling.
Open to all women 18 years and older.
We know that a full weekend is a big commitment and sometimes difficult to fit into a busy schedule. Join your friends for a single day at Camp Sweyolakan.
Spend the day how you like - catch up with friends, explore Sweyolakan, or take part in our many offered classes and activities; our trained camp staff are here to assist you. Be sure to join us in the Dining Hall for a traditional camp meal.
The registration fee includes transportation to camp, lunch, and classic camp activities, including kayaking, hiking, canoeing, crafts, challenge courses, the Big Swing, swimming, archery, singing and games. But you’ll also find fun things like massages, yoga and a silent auction, as well as mini-classes on specialized crafts such as espresso drinks and sourdough bread making. Some activities require additional fees so plan to bring a little cash...just in case!
Arrival boats begin at the Landing at 9:00am and the departure boats begin at 4:00pm.
