we laugh. we cry. we raise our hands. we get on our knees. we get sad. we get angry. we rejoice. we confess. we dance. we sing. we do the work. we let go. we get free.

 

gathering women who sit in the tension of feeling too much’ and ‘not enough’

Camp Well isn’t just for one “type” of woman. Women join us from all seasons of life – married, single, working, young, leading, resting, empty nesting, leaders, those taking a breather, moms nurturing their little ones, and women running the show. But we all have one thing in common: we’re all seeking something deeper in our connection with God and with each other. 

This is why Camp Well exists – we create space for you to show up as you are where you are. It’s a safe space to mourn and a place to dance with joy. It’s where we get to reacquaint ourselves with who God is and who He says we are. And we fight together for freedom from the lies and fears holding us back from TRUE SOUL REST. 

We dive deep into soul work with a desire to understand more fully who God is, who He says you are and just how deeply He loves you – and we do it in the breathtaking Texas Hill Country. Heartfelt conversations around a table, surrounded by stunning scenery and even more beautiful souls. And here’s the best part – you’re never alone in this. It’s in this shared journey that we learn to embrace our unique design while walking in union with Jesus with a surrendered peace, rather than viewing our stories, stumblings and sufferings as anything less than part of His plan to bring Heaven to earth. But most of all, we pray…

. . . that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3‬:‭17‬-‭19‬ ‭NIV‬‬

a note from jenn

founder of Camp Well

“Camp Well was birthed out of a desire to create a safe space where women could come as they are, shed fear, lies and distractions, dream again or for the very first time – to establish clarity, find freedom and choose obedience ALL while returning to their first Love and the powerful Truth of the gospel. My prayer is that you would leave more free than when when you came through a deeper understanding of just how much God loves you and delights in you. I am humbled and amazed at how many show up each time and say “I have no idea why I am here but the Lord just said to come” You keep coming in surrendered obedience with no idea why and I watch time and time again the Lord move in ways that have increased my faith”

“My heart needed Camp Well. There were a handful of places I’ve felt stuck that I no longer feel stuck. I think every woman should experience something like it. To be loved and seen in an atmosphere like that is so powerful. It gave my spirit the clarity and confidence I could not muster on my own.”

WHAT WILL WE DO?

Camp Well includes an online curriculem experience + a 4 day in person retreat that brings us back to the simplicity of the gospel and the hope & healing that it brings.  Our workshops & small group sessions, as well as margin to hear from the Lord, will be the catalyst for:

  • Restoring our soul through rest and confession.
  • Reflecting on the lies and distractions holding us back.
  • Reflecting on our stories, motivations, strengths and values as they align with how Christ designed us.
  • Recommitting to our first love and greatest calling.
  • Reclaiming community.
  • Rejoicing in the Lord’s authorship of it all, lots of laughs and late night chats.
  • Returning home ready for a revival of our soul.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Camp Well is for the woman who needs to step away from the busy and find space to reflect and refocus. It’s the perfect experience for:

  • The lonely one who feels disconnected from the lover of her soul.
  • The grief stricken who longs for rest.
  • The weary who needs a break from burnout.
  • The broken hearted who feels hopeless and alone.
  • The overwhelmed who doesn’t know where to start.
  • The wanderer who isn’t sure where she is going.
  • The achiever who is searching for her truest identity.
  • The inspired who wants to start something new.
  • The undervalued who needs to be reminded of her “why.
  • The isolated who has lost her identity.
  • The ambitious who is balancing career and personal goals.
  • The one who feels stuck because she feels afraid, overwhelmed, unqualified and not enough.

the camp well experience

NOVEMBER 4th-7th, 2024 • UTOPIA, TEXAS

Over the years, Camp Well has transformed from a 4 day retreat to a transformational experience. Our desire is that through this prework and postwork your heart and mind have time to process before you arrive. We strongly encourage you to keep a steady pace of 2 hours a month to work through the assignments. It will challenge you to sit still with the Lord and process some new things and some hard things and some fun things. We promise the investment is worth it.

ALL PRE-WORK IS SELF PACED SO YOU CAN JUMP IN AT ANYTIME

SESSION ONE

Online content will help you begin to unpack lies and replace them with truth. We will also look at a biblical perspective of our motivations.

SESSION TWO

This month we will begin to identify turning points in our *stories through peaks & valleys and identify our unique design.

CAMP WELL

Before we get together we will identify our spiritual gifts as well as take inventory of areas of our life and assess what is and is not working.

SESSION FOUR

Post work content includes establishing practical rhythms of rest as we re-enter our daily lives.

SESSION FIVE

We will do values mining and work on crafting a vision statement that will help guide us in this next season.

SESSION SIX

Online content includes identifying our next right steps and how to create a Well Cell.

BONUS: GO & SEE COURSE

6 weeks of content to help you take an inventory of your spiritual & emotional health that will lead to LOVING GOD and LOVING OTHERS WELL. Content includes videos, pdfs and a podcast series.

*Part of our program involves “story work,” where we reflect on significant moments and turning points in your life, both positive and challenging. This process can bring up memories of past wounds or grief. If you feel that engaging in this type of work might be too difficult for you right now, Camp Well might not be the right fit at this time. However, if you feel prepared, it can be beneficial to navigate story work with the support of a trusted friend, mentor, or therapist.

“God met me this week. I haven’t heard His voice in years. And not because of Him. But this week he spoke directly and personally to me. Because it’s His kindness that leads us towards repentance. In His kindness, the Spirit revealed Himself and said, “Hey, here I am. It’s Me. I am still here. I see you and you are loved.” I refuse to leave this place unchanged. How can I hope for and expect abundant life for my family and my children if I myself am not living it? It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. I want to live in that.”

“The Camp Well experience was the most soul restorative experience I have ever had. The pre-work had unearthed some wounds I thought were healed. Verbalizing, processing and sharing with my table was like a healing balm on an old would that had just been festering. Nothing earth shattering, just a small internal shift that lightened my soul and renewed my heart.”

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.

Are we camping out?

Although we think glamping is fun, we will not be camping out.  We LOVE the idea of channeling our summer camp days and spreading the this laid back adventurous theme through our experience.

How do I find a roommate?

Some of you will come by yourself and some of you will come with friends! If you come by yourself we prayerfully place you in a room with 3-4 other women, each woman having their own twin bed. We have seen sweet friendships birthed every time!

Are we doing any difficult hikes or physical activities?

There will be available hikes to go on. 

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 story, 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 adamant everyone feels comfortable. There is no dress code and we won’t be having any fancy dinners.  We want you to dress comfy. We WILL have 2 different times where we will be doing Freedom Portrait sessions. These might be times you want to wear a favorite outfit. We will be outside in the evenings so dress accordingly.
