Mom Camp: The Camp

November 1-3, 2024

Squamish, BC

Imagine feeling rested, rejuvenated, and more present in your life.

Do you find yourself on autopilot most days? No time for you, with just enough energy to get through your basic activities?Welcome to Mom Camp: The Camp. The “OG Mom Camp,” this is a weekend just for moms to reconnect to themselves and their motherhood community.

Two nights away in BC’s beautiful Squamish Valley, personal development workshops, movement, delicious food and great wine, amazing people, and lots of time to fill your own cup.

No frantic rushing, no managing activities for everyone else, no obligations, no overwhelm, just time for you.

Mom Camp: The Camp will rejuvenate your spirit and re-ignite your spark.

You deserve this, mama.

The location 

Mom Camp: The Camp takes place at a retreat and educational centre located on 165 hectares of ecological reserve in Paradise Valley, near Squamish, British Columbia.

Squamish is nestled between Vancouver and Whistler along the Sea to Sky corridor, one of North America’s most scenic coastal routes. Its spectacular 360-degree views range from snow-capped mountains to glacial lakes to old-growth forests to the turquoise waters of the Howe Sound fjord that look almost too good to be true.

The agenda

If there was one word I would use to describe my experience at Mom Camp, it would be CONNECTION. It felt good to socialize, to connect with others and with myself. This has been missing for me for a while and it made me realize the importance of maintaining meaningful relationships.

Journalling Workshop – Words That Nourish the Heart
Join author and writer Alison Tedford Seaweed in a journalling workshop to nourish your heart and explore what it means to take care of yourself, to really know who you are and who you want to become.
Contemplative, joyful and fun, we will spend time writing out what’s on our hearts. There’s no obligation to share, just come and wrap yourself in words and reflection.
Alison Tedford Seaweed is as mom, writer and author. She started writing to find a creative outlet and turned that into a career pivot into self employment. Self-compassion and self-care are important practices in her life and she enjoys guiding people through imagining what living life authentically could look like with a warm and soothing voice that’s full of joy and hope. 

Speaker: Jennifer Carlyle

Motherhood changes us, transforms us, and it can easily overwhelm us. Just as we begin to feel in control and understand our kids, it all changes and we are back into unknown territory. It’s an all consuming job from nap to soccer schedules, but it can also include joy and calm moments for you too!

In this interactive session Jenn will teach you simple mindful tools called “POP’s” to bring calm and joy into your everyday mothering life. POP’s stand for Pockets of Peace, and are mindful somatic tools that you can use in under 60 seconds to regulate your nervous system and feel in control of chaotic situations. This session will focus on how to use these simple POP’s consistently and effectively in your life, without adding more on your to-do list.

Speaker: Michelle Robindell 

Keeping Mom Camp Alive Back in the Real World

We’ve spent a wonderful weekend in Squamish, connecting with ourselves, other moms, and new insights and tools. We drank amazing wine, ate delicious food, attended inspiring workshops, and we put ourselves at the top of our priority list for a whole weekend! Do we really need to go back to the real world? How do we incorporate into our day-to-day lives everything we’ve gained from Mom Camp?

In this fun, high-energy session, you will create a customized “Mom Camp Take Home Recipe” with the help of your fellow campers and Professional Certified Coach, Michelle Robindell. Bring some of the best parts of camp home with you!

“The biggest thing that I took away was that recognition that I’m not in this alone. “

I just kind of forgot about myself there for a while. I used Camp as an opportunity to get together with other moms that go through the same thing, and remember who Anya is. It was just great to have the bond and the energy that we all shared together. That was that was the biggest thing that I took away – that recognition that I’m not in this alone. I’m not the only one that gets buried in school and spit up and sick kids and trying to juggle it all. I still remember who I am.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centres and activities. We have designed our cancellation policy to be as accommodating as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.

IF YOU CANCEL:
  • 30 days or more prior to the start date of the retreat: a full refund less $150 Cdn administration fee will be given.
  • 0-29 days prior to the start date of the retreat: no refunds will be given.

To cancel, you must send an email stating that you wish to cancel to: gillian@momcamplife.com

If Camp needs to be cancelled or postponed because of changes to COVID-19 restrictions, you will be offered the option of either a refund or deferral to a future Camp.

Will anyone try and sell me something at Camp?
Nope, this is definitely not a sales exercise. The presenters are working professionals and may indeed have books, courses or programs available, but other than mentioning they exist, there will be no sales activity at Camp. This weekend is about YOU, your personal development, your friendships, and your downtime.
