a girlfriends’ getaway for dream defenders

Join us for our THIRD Camp Well experience. Imagine a modern twist to your childhood summer camp days. It will kind of feel like summer camp this time because we will be lodging at Lost Valley Ranch in Sedalia, Colorado. Camp Well is a four-day deep rooted retreat experience for dreamers and doers. We create an inspired space to get away, reflect, refocus and reset the dreams God is stirring in your heart. And you get to do it with an incredible community of women who we promise will become your dream defenders before you head back home.

SPACE IS LIMITED TO 40 CAMPERS ONLY.

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)

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. Since this is a ranch, if you have boots, its the time to dust them off. But boots aren’t required, just comfy shoes as we will be outdoors at times. We will be outside in the evenings so dress accordingly.

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 Lost Valley is a unique experience in that you will be sharing a queen or king bed with your “bunkmate”. If you have a friend coming with you, let us know and we will arrange for you to bunk together.

Are we doing any difficult hikes or physical activities?

There will be a horseback ride that we encourage everyone to go on. We are no super athletes so we are not expecting anyone else to be:) 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 Lost Valley. 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.
