Women's Campout Retreats

A weekend of self reflection and connection with other women

July 12th-14th or
August 18th-20th

In a world where hustle and ambition often overshadow our inner peace, it's time to step away from your “to do” list and embrace a different rhythm – one that honors connection, inner wisdom, and nature’s healing.

Come join Arehn McCarty for three days of camping, connection and study. While surrounded by the towering majesty of ancient trees, breathe in the gentle wisdom of the forest. Open yourself to feeling the power and peace of your connection with Source. 

You will develop a clarity of purpose as we explore more deeply the spiritual Laws described in, what Arehn likes to call her, “User Manual,” or This Thing Called You, by Ernest Holmes.

Savor moments of tranquility, with plenty of time to relax. Indulge in meals crafted from scratch with love and care, nourishing both body and soul.

As daylight fades and the stars emerge overhead, gather around the campfire and share laughter and stories, forging lifelong friendships with other women on this journey.

This weekend will move you from struggle and burnout to Divine Flow, from fear to breakthroughs of Faith, providing the courage to step more boldly into your inner calling, ready to live a bigger life.

You will leave the weekend with an inner rejuvenation and clarity of purpose that allows you to recommit to and serve more deeply the life your dreams. 

This is the kind of indulgence your soul is calling for.

“Your endeavor is not to locate or awaken the activity of the Law (God), it is, rather, to become aware of this Presence and of Its activity flowing through you. If the Law operates automatically, then you do not coerce, concentrate or compel it.”
