Women’s Week at Meadow Mountain Ranch (MMR) is the most fun you can have at camp since you were 11-years-old! I promise! Even if you have never been to camp before you will “Make New Friends” (there’s me singing!) and do new things. If you are a seasoned veteran of this or all or any other camps, I promise a unique mountain experience of fun and adventure of our own making.
The information flyer is at the bottom of this blog post.
Registration for Women’s Week 2019 (July 15 – 18) is open now!
Besides that huge variety of activities possible, we always have great food, thanks to Susan Baker and her food service team who help us experiment with cooking in the outdoors.
If you have a favorite activity, craft, hike, song you’d like us to include in the time at camp, just let me know and we’ll get it scheduled. If you can offer a special craft, music, ceremony, or other fun program, let me know that, too, and we’ll set it up for you.
All of MMR is open to us this year, including the Pinecrest Unit for the folks looking for a different view or a little more solitude. The flyer mentions a variety of new offerings if interest is there.
Opportunities for service projects for the camp can be arranged as well. Of course, if you are hoping for some true get-away time from your usual hectic lives, this is the opportunity. Chill, rest, relax, play, enjoy. Immerse yourself in the beauty and unique mountain environment. Water, grass, trees, sky, flowers, rocks – – – even dirt if you’d like to play in it!
The event is open to any woman at least 18 years of age. Some of the multi-generational teams who have come like moms and daughters (mine included), aunts, and granddaughters have had the best bonding time imaginable. I’d highly recommend it. Bring your old camp friends, bring your stressed-out co-workers, all are welcome and the more the merrier! Having just ladies there gives us a special liberating experience from most anything else in our lives today. Sharing our huge variety of lives and experiences helps us all gain truly long-lasting perspective and lets us return home anxious for next summer already!
Gals have come from all over the country from Maine to Washington, including Arizona, California, Hawaii, Connecticut, Utah, Kansas, Texas, and many other states. The word is spreading about how much fun Women’s Week is and we’d love to have you join us.
Special needs can usually be accommodated easily. The camp is glorious and truly one of our favorite places on earth. My contact information is at the bottom of the flyer and I serve as director, registrar, and I’ll even do dishes when my patrol’s turn comes up!
