Say yes to yourself. 


September 5-8th 2019 • Vernonia, OR

We’re planning the most amazing, epic, life-changing weekend ever — all that’s missing is YOU. Camp Yes is perfect for you if: You’re ready to bust your camp self (the most real and authentic version of you) out into the real world. You’re hungry for a deeper and more meaningful connection to yourself and other badass women entrepreneurs, leaders and changemakers. You crave space and time in nature with a powerful community of women who are willing and ready to let their guard down and get real with their camp self!


Location & Accommodations

We’ll be hanging out at the beautiful Cedar Ridge Retreat & Conference Center just an hour West of Portland, OR!

You’ll be staying in an awesome lodge with other campers and will be with your crew – a small group you’ll spend time with throughout the weekend. All beds have pillows, sheets and blankets to keep you warm! There are shared bathrooms throughout the lodge for everyone to use.



There will be campfires with live music, untalent shows pj parties, arts & crafts, personal development playshops, solo reflection time, yoga, music, rock climbing & challenge course… and all the s’mores… just like a real summer camp!

Camp Yes was just a dream…

Marli Williams had the crazy idea of creating a summer camp for adult women. Based on her love of both play and personal growth she couldn’t think of a better environment to create a powerful experience for women seeking more YES in their life. She founded Camp Yes in 2017 , with the incredible help of Molly McLeod who brought her unique design and organizational talents to camp to life. Marli is a master facilitator of transformation and has over a decade of leading wilderness trips, organizing retreats, conferences, and other events. We can’t wait to welcome you into our community!

Why a Summer Camp? 

A note from your head camp counselor…

Hey there! I’m Marli and I am guessing you might be wondering why going to camp is a good idea… or maybe you think it is the BEST THING EVER – like I do… but just in case… here’s why. There is so much joy and power in gathering around a campfire in the middle of the woods with nothing but the sound of a river in the background. Here is the thing… I believe that nature has the ability to reconnect us to our roots, give space for us to dream bigger dreams and remind us of what truly matters. Speaking of metaphors and campfires… It takes three things to light a fire and keep it burning bright; air, fuel and a spark. Just like the fire, we need those things too. Air – space and time to breathe and to be away from the busyness and distractions of our daily life. Fuel – people and ideas that inspired us to keep going even when it gets tough. A Spark – new energy, new connections, new questions, and new insights to re-ignite our passion when we lose our way.  I hope you will join us to reconnect with yourself and an amazing community of inspiring women!
