Women’s Weekends

Our women’s retreats are designed to provide grown-up girls with a taste of the same experiences we give campers: living and playing outside and enjoying creation, paying attention to God’s love in their lives and growing spiritually, spending time with friends and meeting new people. All retreats are offered to women between the ages of 18 and 80, and no previous experience with Camp DeSoto is necessary!

Seasonal Retreats

The Fall and Winter Women’s Retreats invite women to step away from their daily routines and responsibilities to enjoy intentional teim with each other and with God. We welcome all who are in need of simple living, a slower pace, time to reflect, and conversation and fellowship with other women.

During fall women’s retreats, campers will live in Camp DeSoto cabins and spend much of their time outdoors. In the winter, retreat goers will be housed in winterized houses with central heat.

Camp DeSoto is so much more than a summer camp. For many it has been and continues to be a respite, a still point in a spinning world. Join us as we soak up the peace of this mountain together.

Our next women’s retreat will be offered in September 2017!

September Camp

September Camp is, in short, grown-up Camp! We invite grown-up girls to come and experience the wonder of summer camp (again, or for the first time) on a weekend in mid- September (Thursday through Sunday).

Women get the opportunity to be campers – sleeping in cabins, choosing their activities, eating family style in the Dining Hall, sharing Morning Watches and Night Devotions, living by the bell, and worshipping together. It is a fun time of sharing old memories and making new ones.

This is a more active retreat, designed for the child-at-heart. Be prepared for full days, lots of laughter, trying new things, and holy play!
