Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I come?
Because you’re ready for an adventure. You want to reconnect with yourself in a fun, deep and meaningful way. You want a break from technology and to re-discover what it feels like to be truly present, laugh until you cry, watch the sunrise from mountain tops, and bask in the glow of pure uninhibited bliss.
Who can attend?
Camp Yes is open to anyone 18 and older. Anybody who self-identifies as a woman is welcome to attend! We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who identify as women in a way that’s significant to them.
Do people come solo or with buddies?
You’re welcome and encouraged to bring your friends along — the more the merrier! But if you’re coming solo, don’t worry… you’ll leave with PLENTY of new friends.
How many people will be there?
75-100 amazing ladies of all ages and backgrounds! Small enough that you’ll get a chance to meet everybody, and big enough that you’ll be able to find a few people to connect more deeply with. You’ll be part of a small group you’ll spend more time with throughout the weekend.
What activities happen at camp? What are we going to do?
There will be campfires, pj parties, personal development workshops, creativity and art, rock climbing… like a real summer camp!
Can I lead an activity?
We already are working on an incredible line-up of amazing facilitators to lead the playshops throughout camp. There will also be informal times throughout the weekend where you can share your passions!
