a girlfriends’ getaway for dream defenders
Join us for our second Camp Well experience. Imagine a modern twist to your childhood summer camp days. Instead of sleeping in bunkbeds and dining in mess halls, we will be lodging at Hoffman Haus, a luxury bed and breakfast in the heart of Fredericksburg, Texas. This Camp Well session will be a more intimate experience and perfect for coming with your best friend or dream defender! Ever since we launched The Well Studio we have longed to gather and encourage this weary tribe of dreamers and doers and entrepreneurs….to create a space where we could all reflect, refocus and rest in the midst of our
busy full lives. We dream big dreams and try to do it all and often times get distracted, off course and weary in the process. So we invite you to join us next spring at CAMP WELL.

Honestly, I loved that there was not a “100,000 followers” speaker for the first Camp Well. Every speaker was SO uniquely gifted and perfect for their topic. It reminded me over and over again that my platform doesn’t have to be huge in the world’s eyes to be valuable. I keep reminding myself of the phrase “obedience over outcome” over and over. Such good truths. (and the fact that the entire conference could have been put in an Anthropologie catalog)
When should I book my flight to arrive?
We will have a Pamper Station at the hotel for all our weary travelers to freshen up. It will be open from 2p-5p on Sunday the 1stt. You can check into Hoffman Haus any time after 3pm. Our Welcome Session begins at 4:30 and cocktail reception begins at 6:00. The airport is about 30min from downtown. If you want to arrive earlier you can check your bags into the hotel and explore main street. There is plenty within walking distance.
What if I am not an entrepreneur, should I come?
Yes. This experience is for dreamers, doers, builders, creators, makers, ministry leaders, non-profit starters…..any woman who has a dream to live life or do work with great purpose, using the unique gifts and talents that God has given her.
Do I have to be a Christian to attend?
You do not need to be a Christian to attend. But we will be honest and forthcoming as to what to expect. The foundation of our event is faith based reflecting our trust in Jesus Christ. We will be talking about God and how He is the author of our dreams and giftedness as well as praying at different times throughout. We desire everyone to come as they are.
What do I need to wear?
We are adament everyone feels comfortable. There is no dress code and we won’t be having any fancy dinners. We want you to dress comfy. The average high is 81 and the average low is 65. We will be outside in the evenings so dress accordingly. There will be one outdoor “easy” hike – so bring appropriate clothes. There will also be an “optional” yoga session.
How do I find a roommate?
We are calling this Camp Well session – the girlfriends’ dream defender weekend – it’s the perfect session to come with our bff! This session at Hoffman Haus is a different experience in that you will be sharing a queen or king bed with your “bunkmate”. If you have a friend coming with you, either buy both tickets for the same cottage OR make sure your friend buys at the same time. If you happen to register for a cottage and don’t have a friend joining you, we will place you with the other person who purchased that same cottage.
Are we doing any difficult hikes or physical activities?
Nothing difficult. We are no super athletes so we are not expecting anyone else to be:) There will be an optional “light” yoga session as well as a low key hike. If you are concerned you may not be able to participate, feel free to email us with concerns.
Will we be only be talking about business?
NO! Our first day sessions are focused on identity, gifts, values and goals that can be applied to both life or business. But we will be crafting our breakout sessions to drill down more on specific business (and life) strategies based on the needs of the campers. For example these could cover: creating a family mission statement, leading in ministry, branding/marketing, productivity, creating more time & money, etc.
Are we camping out?
Although we think glamping is fun, we will not be camping out. We will be laying our heads each night on comfy beds at the Hoffman Haus. We LOVE the idea of channeling our summer camp days and spreading the this laid back adventurous theme through our experience.
Can I bring my kids or family?
We desire this time away is focused solely on you, so we strongly encourage you to make arrangements for your children to stay back at home with family or friends. This time is for you to focus on you, enjoy late night chats and spend some much needed time alone with the Lord.
