4-day-header SEPTEMBER 18-21, 2016 DENVER, COLORADO
Camp Well is a modern twist to your childhood summer camp days. Instead of sleeping in bunkbeds and dining in mess halls, we will be lodging in the boutique Magnolia Hotel and dining at…..well, that is going to be a surprise – you will have to come to find out. 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 this fall at CAMP WELL. photos by Kristin Griffith //  video by Chelsea Criss
aka location

Our base camp will be the beautifully modern Magnolia Hotel in downtown Denver where our workshops and sessions will be hosted during the days. Our evenings will be spent venturing outside of Denver and experiencing God’s amazing creation. Our choice of venues is the perfect catalyst for both rest and reset.

Closest Airport is Denver International Airport, just 20 minutes from downtown

aka: the details


Camp Well will be four days of the perfect balance of workshops, breakout sessions, one on one mentor sessions, an outdoor experiences that will be the catalyst for:

  • Reflecting on our gifts & identity and shedding fear and distractions
  • Refocusing our values and priorities

Camp Well is for the woman who needs a break from the busy to rest and refocus on the big dreams she has in life, ministry and/or business. It’s the perfect experience for:

  • The overwhelmed dreamer who doesn’t know where to start
  • The weary doer who needs rest
  • The busy business owner who needs to reset her strategies and find answers to questions

Camp Well will be my first conference/retreat EVER! For me, Camp Well will be a space to renew and deepen my faith as I learn to trust God’s leading into this exciting new adventure ahead of me. This conference will take place in the midst of a brand new season in my life as a new wife and fledging creative business owner – 2016 is going to be a FULL year and Camp Well will serve as a much needed break from the crazy busy to rest, refocus, and reassess my dreams and goals for life and business.

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 78 and the average low is 44. 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.

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, PR, 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 in the Magnolia Hotel. 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.

I live in Denver, do I have to stay at the hotel?

You do not have to stay at the hotel but ALL early morning and late night activities will take place there. In our experience the best moments, friendships and collaborations happen when you are away from home, living life with other dreamers that “get you”. We have left the hotel open so that you can bunk up with up to 3 other gals if you want to in order to stay on budget. If you ARE in Denver, make sure to check out our Book Bash details the night of the 21st after the retreat!

Will you be offering a payment plan?
Yes, we will announce our payment plan on Monday when tickets go up for sale!
