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 21 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?
50-70 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?
If you’re interested in leading a workshop, email us at: email@example.com. Otherwise, there will be informal times throughout the weekend where you can share your passions!

What’s the Camp like? What are the accommodations like?
We’ll be hanging out at Camp Surf in San Diego – we'll have our own private beach!
You'll share a bunkhouse with your crew – a small group you'll spend time with throughout the weekend. There's a central bathroom and showerhouse with private stalls steps away from each cabin.
What’s the schedule? Can I come late? Leave early?
You’ll arrive between 12-2 on Friday, and we’ll get started with activities that afternoon. We’ll have plenty to do over the weekend, and will wrap up Monday afternoon between 1-2pm. We STRONGLY encourage you to arrive on time and be present for the entire weekend, but if you absolutely have to arrive a little late or leave a little earlier, let us know.
How do I get there? What’s the weather like? What do I pack?
Don’t worry! We’ll send you everything you need to know in your welcome packet, including directions and a suggested packing list.
What’s the tech situation? What if I have an internet emergency?
We'll encourage you to leave your phone in your bag on airplane mode for the duration of camp so you can stay present. We'll provide you with an emergency phone number in case someone needs to get in touch with you.
What’s the food like? Will there be alcohol?
We promise the food will be delicious! If you have special dietary needs or requests, let us know when you register. We won’t be providing alcohol.
