Women from all over Sudbury and beyond will be getting together to take part in a relaxing, self-indulgent, fun-filled weekend in the most magnificent location in the North Channel of Lake Huron.

This weekend offers a variety of high quality programs. Outdoor activities include our challenging high and low ropes courses, canoeing, archery, kayaking and hiking.  Also available are yoga and meditation  and sessions that aim to spark creativity, and other interests.  Massage therapists and aestheticians are on site to provide their services to our participants throughout the weekend, with meals prepared by our wonderful kitchen. Participants can turn their full attention to trying new things, meeting new people and relaxing in the beautiful natural surroundings.

Some of the exciting programs to look forward to in 2020 include:

  • Paint and Paddle
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Bath bomb making
  • Traditional camp programming such as canoeing, sailing, & archery


Participants will have the option to take the bus or drive. We encourage participants that are attending in groups to carpool. Participants that choose to drive will be required to pay a parking fee of $25.00/vehicle, upon arrival and will have the option to select their boat shuttle time.
