4:00, 4:30: Camp Tours (Leave from in front of Wasiata Yurt)

5:00 pm: Cabin Clubhouse (Cabins)

Join your new cabin mates to get to know each other, and start to create a home away from home in your cabin. Your Cabin leader will guide you through a quick get to know you exercise, and then you can all head over to dinner together. No need to worry about sitting alone tonight (or all weekend).

5:30–6:30 pm: Dinner & Welcome (Madrone Dining Hall)

6:30–7:00 pm: Orientation, Meg Keene & Maddie Eisenhart (Wasiata Campfire)

After opening dinner we’ll have a quick, mandatory camp orientation. We’ll review camp rules, introduce staff, and tell you about our weekend program

7:00–7:30 pm: Ice Breakers (Wasiata Campfire)

You just got here! You don’t know anyone! You’re kind of scared! We get it. After dinner and orientation we’ll have icebreakers (and hugs). It’s the kind of mandatory group weirdness, where we can all get over feeling awkward… because we’re all in it together.

7:30–8:30 pm: Workshops

Twilight Zip (Zipline Meadow)

Have you always wanted to zip past the Redwoods in the (semi) dark? For those of you who want to start camp with a tiny thrill, join us at Zipline Meadow, pile on those glow sticks and a helmet, and have the ride of your life.

Sing Along Workshop, Christina McNamee-Mahaffey (Wasiata Campfire)

The vast majority of our campers said they were really in it for the campfire. So if you want to get to know the songs before a weekend of singing round the campfire (or you just want to get a little extra singing time in), join us, pick up a lyric book, and dive in.

8:30–9:00 pm: Opening Campfire Ritual, Leah Tioxon & Meg Keene (Wasiata Campfire)

Bring your hopes and dreams and fears, for camp and life. Join our Camp Witch and High Priestess of Owning Yourself, as we start camp with a ritual, and set an intention. Bring your brand new camp journal (brought to you by Minted), it’s time to fill out page one. Join us in front of a sunset, designed by camp designer Sentimental Fools, with designs by Chasing Paper, while we figure out what we want our next sunrise to look like.

9:00–10:00 pm: Campfire, Sing Along, S’mores (Wasiata Campfire)

It just got real woo up in here, which means it can only be time for one thing: a lux s’more bar, songs, and making new friends.

10:00 pm: Cabin Check in (Cabins)

If you want a moment to decompress, talk about your day, laugh cry, and just be human together, head to your cabin. Your cabin leader (and your cabin mates) will be there for anyone that just needs to share a story or two before bed.

10:00 pm: Quiet Hours / You Don’t Have To Go Home, But You Can’t Stay Here (Randolph Lodge)

Camp quiet hours start at 10 pm outdoors, and we expect cabin’s to be lights out and ready to sleep by no later than 10:15. (People need their beauty sleep.) If you’re a night owl, feel free to head to Randolph Lodge. You can chat in the living area, or work on an adult sized coloring sheet in the Arts & Crafts side of the cabin. There are two bedrooms in the back of the Cabin, however, so please keep things to a dull roar. And if you'd like to end your day with quiet, drop in sacred space in the Yurt will be lit by (LED) flickering candle light.

10:15 pm: Lights Out In Cabins


Friday

7:00–8:00 am: 5 Rhythms Guided Movement Meditation, Leah Tioxon (Yurt)

Get in your body at sunrise, as Leah guides you through movement meditation. This is a safe healing space to feel your cells in motion, and start the day fully owning your beautiful human form.

8:00–9:00 am: Breakfast (Madrone Dining Hall)

9:15–10:45 am: Keynote Workshop—On Asking, Cyndie Spiegel (Perkins Lodge)

In this exciting and deeply inspiring workshop, you will learn what it means to show up in the world as you truly are with the courage to ask for what you need. Cyndie's no-bullshit style of workshopping will teach you how to ask for what you want in a world that is available for the taking. Women are less self-assured than men—and to succeed, confidence matters as much as competence. Cyndie will rally your spirit, equipping you with the tactical tools that you need to ask for what you want. This experiential session will give you the tools to do just that but be prepared to do the work in session for this interactive thought-shifting workshop.

WARNING: Cyndie will use words like "intention" and "authenticity" but will also drop some F-bombs along the way.

11:00 am–12:00 pm: Workshops

Crafts & Convo, Watercolor Postcard Painting & Being More Creative, Elise Moreno (Randolph Lodge)

Join Elise to learn basic watercolor techniques. (Because there is so much more to it than the mess you made with watercolors as a child… though channeling your inner child’s enthusiasm never goes amiss.) Watercolors are a great way to relax and force yourself to let go a little. Techniques practiced will include: wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brush, gradient wash, variegated wash, and salt. Walk away with your practice sheet (to remember what you learned) plus a watercolor postcard that you can use to write a postcard to yourself at the end of camp. While we paint, we’ll discuss how to spend more time creatively in our day to day lives.

Introduction to Vision Boarding, Eve Sturges, with Jay Pryor (Perkins Lodge)

Eve doesn’t believe that vision boards will make all your dreams come true. But eve does believe that knowing what you want makes all the difference in day to day decisions, and no desire is too trivial OR too implausible. Using collage skills she learned in middle school, Eve’s workshop encourages getting real about who you are, where you’re going, and all the pieces in between. Jay Pryor will join Eve at the top of the class to bring a little extra woo-woo to her pragmatism.

Archery (Orientation 11 am sharp) (Archery)

Is Archery everything you hoped it would be? Actually, it’s more. Get out your aggression while you work on literally taking aim, and hitting your target. Archery orientation starts at 11 am sharp, and is mandatory for participation. Once you take orientation and get your wristband, you may drop in on Archery during the rest of camp.

12:00–1:00 pm: BBQ Lunch (Picnic Area)

1:00 pm–All Day: Vision Boarding (Perkins Lodge)

Weather you started a vision board in the workshop this morning, or just want to swing by for a little (or a lot) of meditative collage, Perkins will be open all day. We’ll have glue, magazines, paper, and floor to ceiling views of the redwoods.

1:00–2:00 pm: Afternoon Chill

Afternoon nap, quiet hour (Cabins, Wasita meadow)

Shhh. It’s quiet hour in the cabins. If you’d like to be quiet outdoors, head to the quiet grove in front of the Yurt, our lux tent provided by Camp'd Out in the Wasita meadow. (And you thought we wouldn't be glamping!) We also have drop in sacred space in the Yurt, if you'd like to sit, journal, yoga, commune, pray, or anything else that feeds your soul.

1:00–3:00 pm Pool Party (Pool)

Swimming, this is what you came for. Join us at the seashell shaped pool to toss around glitter balls provided by Minnidip. And yes, you can take all the selfie’s you want against our glitter Minnidip floaty and balloon wall, designed by Sentimental Fools.

2:00–3:30 pm: Workshops

Crafts & Convo: Camp Bracelets, Liz Stanley (Randolph Lodge)

Join Liz for a trip down memory lane by creating your favorite camp crafts in Randolph Lodge. While we’re crafting we’ll discuss how to combat negative self talk in our day to day lives. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make classic seed bead jewelry, friendship bracelets and lanyards for a camp keepsake to take home with you or  to give to one your new friends you made at camp!

Beyond Fear, Monique Malcolm (Wasiata Campfire)

Fear by design is a defense mechanism. Its primary purpose is to keep you safe. It's when we let our fearful thoughts go unchecked that this becomes a problem. Fear holds you back. Luckily, being fearless is not a prerequisite for achieving your dreams. Instead of trying to convince you to get rid of fear altogether, this workshop will provide practical steps to help you take action despite feeling afraid.

Archery (Orientation 2pm Sharp) (Archery)

Is Archery everything you hoped it would be? Actually, it’s more. Get out your aggression while you work on literally taking aim, and hitting your target. Archery orientation starts at 2pm sharp, and is mandatory for participation. Once you take orientation and get your wristband, you may drop in on Archery during the rest of camp.

3:45–5:15 pm: Workshops

Embodied Dramahhh dance class, Nicole Gervacio (Music Shell)

Join Nicole for this fluid dance class, that it is easy to follow along, accessible to all dance "levels", and has a flowing playlist.The structure of the class moves through warm ups, isolations, to simple choreography, drills, and guided freestyle. The goal of the class is to create a warm, tender, and strong space, where however the body shows up that day, it can be fully realized. Every body holds great wisdom, and the goal of this class is to help all of us remember how powerful our bodies are. (With a little Beyonce included.)

Three Queens workshop, Manya Dotson (Perkins Lodge)

Come work with Manya to explore the powerful energy systems that define and drive us—your inner queens. Get to know your Dark Queen, your Clever Queen and your True Queen, and the role this trinity has played in your life. Glean insight into what makes you achieve effortlessly and joyfully, and learn how you might bring more of that energy into your life in the form of your true queen.  In this workshop we will define and name the queens, explore their particularities and impact on our bodies and actions, learn how to recognise when they are showing up, and move towards spending most of our lives in the calm and inspired glow of our True Queen. If you want to art journal about it, we'll have the supplies to do so. Also? Tiaras are very welcome.

5:30–6:30 pm: Dinner (Madrone Dining Hall)

7:00–9:00 pm: Twilight Zip (Zipline Meadow)

This is your second and final time to zipline through the twilight, with all the glow magic that you want and need.

7:15–9:00 pm: Movie Night (Perkins Lodge)

Remember back when you had no responsibilities, and you could get together with your friends, watch movies, and eat snacks, with not a care in the world? Well, that happens again tonight. We’ll have chairs for those that need them, but feel free to bring your sleeping bags, and cuddle up with your new friends for a night at the movies.

9:00–10:00 pm: Campfire Sing Along (Wasiata Campfire)

Once your movie (or zipline journey) is over, join us at the campfire. We’ll get out our songbooks, and sing till we sleep. Carrying a tune is far from required.

10:00 pm: Cabin Check in (Cabins)

If you want a moment to decompress, talk about your day, laugh cry, and just be human together, head to your cabin. Your cabin leader (and your cabin mates) will be there for anyone that just needs to share a story or two before bed.

Far from being serious, Jay’s light-hearted approach makes transforming your life feel accessible, and even fun.

11:00 am–12:00 pm: Workshops

Crafts & Convo: Bedazzling and Emotional Labor, Maddie Eisenhart (Randolph Lodge)

The most iconic thing you bring home from Camp (aside from a wicked case of poison ivy) is the camp t-shirt. Bring your official camp t-shirt to bling out, or bring something to start bedazzling as your own (denim jacket, your favorite jeans, etc.) Make magic with stencils, iron-on letters, patches and maybe a wee bit of glitter paint. While we craft, we’ll talk about emotional labor, the patriarchy, and how we’re getting through to the men in our lives.

Chakra Tune Up, Leah Tioxon (Yurt)

Leah will guide campers through a simple and powerfully effective exercise to align and harmonize our chakras - the seven energy centers of our bodies. Campers will learn how to scan their bodies for stuck energy and areas of tension, and shift into a state of expansion, relaxation, and rejuvenation through mindful breathing as we focus our awareness chakra by chakra from crown to root. (Bonus: each camper will receive a guided chakra meditation to download and continue this practice at home.)

1:00–3:00 pm: Pool Party (Pool)

Heartsong Journaling, Rachel Wilkerson Miller (Perkins Lodge)

Join Rachel to start the creation of a Heartsong Journal, with a special journal just for class participants provided by Minted. This is a special stand alone journal that serves as an encyclopedia of you. In this workshop you’ll dive deep into yourself and your needs. What does self care look like to you? What nourishes you? What words or phrases or ideas do you want to remember? We’ll provide a variety of resource texts. Feel free to bring your Meyer-Brigg results (try this text at 16 personalities), your full natal chart (Co-Star Astrology is great for this), or whatever will get you thinking about the way that you work. If you want to bring quotes, books, or images you love, go for it.

For those of you who painted postcards earlier this weekend, we’ll have them set aside and ready to go for you. For everyone else, we’ll have plenty of postcards. Come and write a note to yourself about what you learned at camp, or what you want to remember. (Don’t worry, we’ll have writing prompts). Address it, and drop it in our Compact Camp Mailbox, and we’ll mail it to you when you need it most. Or at least, in six months.

9:00–9:45 pm: Closing Campfire (Wasiata Campfire)

9:45 pm: Group Moon Howl, Leah Tioxon (Wasiata Meadow)

We didn’t burn our bras this weekend (because bras are vital for comfort and support). But we are going to take this thing out by howling at the moon. For the rest of your life, you can say that you howled at the moon with a pack of wild women, and that’s reason enough.

10:00 pm: Cabin Check in (Cabins)
