Frequently Asked Questions

About Camp

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.

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?
40-60 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 opportunities, hikes in some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, swimming in alpine lakes, relay races, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing, canoeing… like a real summer camp!

Can I lead an activity?
If you’re interested in leading a workshop, email us at: marli@marliwilliams.com. Otherwise, there will be informal times throughout the weekend where you can share your passions!

What ages and genders 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 are significantly female-identified.

About Logistics

What’s the Camp like? What are the accommodations like?
We’ll be hanging out at beautiful Camp Saturna, about two hours north of Seattle. You’ll have the option of staying in an indoor bunkhouse, or camping under the stars. Right on Silver Lake, Camp Saturna has:

  • Modern bunkhouse with bunks for 40, shared indoor bathrooms, and lounge
  • 133 Acres of land with hikes, waterfront, camping, climbing wall, and more
  • Rustic campsites to set up your own tent
  • Over one mile of waterfront on Silver Lake, with docks, boating, swimming, and more

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 Sunday 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. If you have to get on an airplane to join us, we recommend flying into Bellingham if you can — it’s a 45 minute drive from there. You can also fly into Seattle, and it’s a 2-3 hour drive. Find people to carpool with or crash with the night before camp here!

What’s the tech situation? What if I have an internet emergency?
There’s no cell reception or wifi at Camp Satura — a blessing in disguise! It helps to disconnect from the outside world to reconnect with yourself. We’ll provide you with an emergency landline number in case anyone needs to get ahold of 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.

Help, I have another question!
