from the creators of Camp Well

a transformational discipleship experience in Northwest Arkansas

– JANUARY 5-8TH, 2023 –

for college & post grad women ages 18-24

I am READY TO REGISTER

Not quite ready, but keep me posted.

“The Lord your God, who walked ahead of you along the way to SCOUT a place for you to pitch camp—by fire at night and cloud by day—to lead you on the way you should go.”

Deuteronomy 1:33

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

We know you are all overwhelmed and busy, carrying what feels like the weight of the world. You barely have margin to breathe. Others of you feel lonely in your busy life. We have created a space for you to get away, breathe, laugh, and sit across the table from someone who says “I see you” and “you are not alone”

Scout isn’t for just one girl. Young women join us from all different backgrounds- some who grew up in church and some who didn’t, some who have a 5 year vision and some who don’t know what they will do next week, some who have been thriving in their young adult years and some who have felt paralyzed by the transition into adulthood.  No matter where you land – we all have one thing in common – we want to believe that God has something more for us. The SCOUT Discipleship Experience is for those of us who sit in the tension of feeling too much and not enough. We have created space to unpack and repack, pray and laugh, dream and reset as you are reminded who God is and who He says you are. We will FIND FREEDOM, ESTABLISH CLARITY & CHOOSE OBEDIENCE. This unique experience will be set against the college town of Fayetteville, Arkansas; the perfect combination of southern charm and funky vibes. While you are there, you will enjoy good meals, fun activities and time to process with mentors who have gone ahead with Jesus to “scout the way”. (think adult summer camp) Come as you are, bring what you have – or bring nothing at all – and join our community. We’re eager to cheer you on, pray you along and equip you to run confidently in the good works God has prepared in advance for you.

“I truly loved this experience! It has marked my life in a way that I will literally never be the same, and I really mean that. It showed me that God really is as personal and kind as we say He is. The last day I remember I was so caught up in His goodness and His kindness I couldn’t take it. This experience has given me encouragement in my gifts and the courage to step forward in obedience to what God has called me to. Every woman needs to do it!”

a message from jenn

founder of The Well Summit, Camp Well and SCOUT

“The Well Summit was birthed out of a desire to create safe spaces 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. Last fall, after hosting 8 Camp Well sessions, I looked around the room full of 25-65 year olds who were experiencing freedom for the first time and thought to myself “What if I had these tools when I was younger? What if I could have found freedom earlier in my life?” This is when SCOUT was born.

WHAT WILL WE DO?

S C O U T  is a 4 day in person gathering that brings us back to the simplicity of the Gospel. We will be reminded of who God is and who He says we are. Our curriculum 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
  • Recalling truth as it relates to social and cultural issues facing this generation
  • Rejoicing in the Lord’s authorship of it all
  • Returning home ready for an obedient revival

WHO IS IT FOR?

S C O U T  is for the young woman who needs a step away from distractions and overwhelm and find space to rest, reflect and refocus. It’s the perfect experience for:

  • The one who feels stuck because she feels afraid, overwhelmed, unqualified or not enough.
  • The weary doer who needs rest from burnout.
  • The isolated one who has lost her own identity.
  • The shamed sister who can’t seem to forgive herself. 
  • The grieving one who longs for comfort. 
  • The overwhelmed dreamer who doesn’t know where to start.
  • The dream-less wanderer who isn’t sure what is next. 
  • The goal-driven achiever who is searching for her truest identity. 
  • The inspired creator who wants to start a new project.
  • The undervalued leader who needs to be reminded of her “why.”
  • The broken hearted who feels hopeless and alone.

  a four-day soul care retreat 
in the mountains of Colorado in the middle of a six month online experience to reflect, refocus and reset

APRIL 17-20, 2023 . LOST VALLEY RANCH, COLORADO

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, raising kids, running businesses - you name it, you’ll find it here. But they all have one thing in common, they are believing God has something more for them but they sit in the tension of feeling too much and not enough

This is why Camp Well exists - it is a space created so that we can quit pretending. We can have permission to grieve. We can rediscover who God is and who He says we are. And we can become free from the lies and fears holding us back from TRUE SOUL REST.
 
We do good hard soul work at Camp Well. We do it in the mountains. We do it over good conversations. We do it over amazing meals. And we don't do it alone. Some of us find JOY in His salvation again and some us find it for the very first time. It's then that we begin to leverage our beautiful and unique design as we co-labor with Christ in confidence instead of seeing ourselves, our wiring and our stories as liabilities to the Kingdom.
 

 

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.

the camp well experience

Over the years, Camp Well has transformed from a 4 day retreat to a 6 month experience. Our desire is that through this prework and postwork your heart and mind have time to process before you land in the valley in April. 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.

FEBRUARY

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

MARCH

This month we will begin to identify turning points in our stories through Peaks & Valleys and identify our gifts with Strengths Finder 

APRIL : CAMP WELL

Before we get to Colorado we will identify our Spiritual Gifts as well as take inventory of areas of our life and assess what is and is not working.

MAY

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

JUNE

We will do Values Mining and work on crafting a Vision Statement that will help guide us in this next season.

JULY

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.

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)

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 cme. 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" This woman comes in obedience with no idea why and I watch time and time again the Lord move in ways that have increased my faith"

God met me in the mountains 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? It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. I want to live in that.

faqs

aka: questions you may still have

When should I book my flight to arrive?

Campers can either drive straight to Lost Valley Ranch or fly into Denver.

If you drive to Lost Valley, please arrive by 12:15 on October 17th.

If you fly, please make sure to be at Union Station Denver by 9:45am where a complimentary bus will be ready to drive all campers to Lost Valley Ranch. You must arrange travel in order to have you at Union Station no later than 9:30am on October 17th. The train ride is 30 minutes to Union Station so please account for deplaning, gathering luggage, waiting for the train and train travel.

You will arrive BACK at Denver airport by 4:00pm on October 20th, so book your return flight accordingly.

If you CAN arrive a day early to Denver we highly recommend it. This gives your body a night to adjust and rest before heading to the ranch the next morning. Connect with fellow campers on our Facebook Group to share a room! 

When does the online content begin?

The online content portion of our NEW Camp Well experience will begin August 1st. Each month there will be about 1-2 hours of video/ homework to do.

Is there a Host Hotel for the night before?

Yes, all host hotel information will be sent to you via email in September. It will also be shared in our Mighty Networks group so you can coordinate with other campers if you would like to find a roommate.

What if I can't be in Denver by 9:45am on October 17th?

Email us and let us know so we can try and coordinate for you.

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 1-3 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 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. Also, if you do register and have any limitations regarding stairs and hills, please let us know so that we can select your cabin location accordingly.

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. Since this is a ranch, if you have boots, it's 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.

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 - it is a 4-diamond ranch with impeccable hospitality. 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.

  • after July 2nd - 50% of your fee is refundable

“SCOUT gave me time and tools to find the truth. About what I was believing, who I was created to be, and what I am capable of. But it didn’t just do that for me. I think my favorite part of SCOUT was watching that happen for other people who were supported by women who began the weekend as complete strangers. The quickness of a community who was willing to stand up and fight for truth for someone else is a beautiful thing. You could even say that these strangers became defenders of their new friends dreams.”

“I was struggling with direction and the unknown of the future going into SCOUT, after going, I felt like the Lord wanted me to go talk to the Dean of Business at my Alma Mater about getting a doctorate to become a professor. The same week he offered me a class for the fall semester! I felt so much clarity from God and SCOUT helped me realize that I needed to change certain aspects of my life and helped grow my relationship with God in a way that I think I would have missed this opportunity if I wouldn’t have went.”
