The Wild Women Weekend is all about savouring the beauty of the land that surrounds us and each other’s company. We offer a space to do that creatively so you can indulge in what it is you need: restoration, physical activity or stillness, self-expression or exploration, connecting with other spirited women, learning new skills, pursuing an old or new love.
Hosted at Wild Women Expedition’s historical basecamp near Sudbury, participants will enjoy renowned veggie oriented cuisine by Wild Women Kitchen Goddesses, nearly 400 pristine acres to enjoy, wood burning sauna, excellent swimming, kayaking and canoe skills clinics, yoga, music and art sessions, campfires and nature paths to explore!
We will all rendezvous at 7pm on Friday Aug 2 at our private 230 acre property situated along the majestic Spanish River, 45 mins west of Sudbury (you can take a bus to nearby Nairn Centre and we will pick you up, or help arrange carpools from Sudbury and Toronto). Accommodation at the basecamp consists of rustic riverside cabins and prospector tents that sleep from 1-4 women. Please note: we have outdoor showers and latrines…aka getting kinda rustic already!
On Friday night we will have a welcoming evening snack and a brief orientation to the weekend and living at the camp. You can look forward to capping the night off in our wood burning sauna or chatting on the sauna deck overlooking the river listening to loons.
Each full day, we will have interesting workshop options drawing on the talents of WWE staff and local gal-facilitators, including kayak and canoe skills clinics, massage/body work, drumming, painting workshops and yoga sessions! You can also offer a session yourself if you have a talent you would like to share!
Between workshops there is plenty of time to rest, explore, connect with others and do whatever you feel like! On Saturday evening we gather around the campfire and Sunday night usually involves a talent show and dance party in the barn. The last day of our retreat, we will have brunch and goodbyes. If you stay for all these activities, you can plan your departure before or by 11 am, Monday August 5.
