Our Mission

We produce multi- and single-day camps in the mountains of Western Massachusetts with an emphasis on fitness to inspire badassery, mindfulness to inspire centeredness, and intentional groups to inspire meaningful relationships in women at various stages in their lives. We offer a strong, specific curriculum and guided introspection designed to focus on mental, emotional, and physical states of our own exceptional identities. We promote inclusivity and empowerment of self and others.

The camps are all-inclusive, featuring nutritious meals with attention to specific dietary needs, lodging in the most beautiful parts of New England, and curated programs. Each camp includes fitness classes, yoga, hiking adventures, women’s circles, s’mores, arts 'n crafts, and dance parties.

A portion of the proceeds of each camp reservation will go toward sending girls involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hampshire County to summer camp. We acknowledge our shared responsibility to invest in the next generation of women leaders.
