Women's Weekend 2017: Success!
The Women's Weekend Retreat at Camp Hochelaga this past August 2017 was 'elevated' camping  with purpose , a perfect setting for a weekend away, finding the time to disconnect to reconnect. Nurturing and nourishing the mind, body and spirit, with the mission of YWCA VT at its foundation. Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women. More than 50 women joined us for dinner and discussion with author and racial justice educator Debby Irving of Waking Up White and more than 30 women participated in the full weekend retreat. Healthy meals and conversations abounded at the dining table, small group workshops, larger all group programming and traditional camp activities all filled the time during the weekend. We are looking forward to another fantastic retreat weekend next August 2018! Stay tuned for registration opening in the spring.
