The Ultimate Girls Getaway

In this hectic, busy world, sometimes as women we don’t get a chance to prioritize ourselves. With topics like mental health and self-care on the tip of everyone’s tongue lately, it’s time for women to put themselves first and take a breather from the everyday craziness! Rustic Mama Retreats Ultimate Girls Getaway is the perfect place for you to relax, refresh and reconnect with yourself and other fabulous like-minded women. Its good for the heart, the mind and the soul! You’ll have the chance to engage in a variety of amazing sessions such as yoga, sign making workshops, paddle-boarding, archery, tree-top trekking, dance parties and the opportunity to partake in workshops taught by talented guest speakers, all designed to be fun, exciting and allow you to relax and rediscover yourself.

Sessions and Workshops

There is something for everyone at our Ultimate Girls Getaway. The biggest problem you’ll have is choosing which session to sign up for! Fun, adventure, education, friendship and relaxation await you at our lakeside escape!

Maybe you’ll spend the morning creating a masterpiece! Take a guided painting workshop, or try your hand at making a rustic wooden sign or authentic dream-catcher.

Reflection more your thing? Breathe and relax during a sunrise yoga session or enjoy the peacefulness of the lake with a morning paddle. Then maybe step into a vision board or guided journaling workshop.

Why not ramp it up in the afternoon and set your thrill metre to high! Cheer each other on as you tackle a state of the art high-ropes course or touch the sky by scaling and rappelling the 30′ tall rock climbing wall! Take your aim in the archery field or use those critical thinking skills to break out of the escape room.

The fun doesn’t stop there! Evenings at Rustic Mama Retreats are filled with entertainment! From Friday night wine socials, to Saturday night dance parties we’ve got the perfect recipe for an exciting evening! 

Don’t worry if you want a quieter escape! There are several opportunities throughout the day to relax and reflect and each night is capped off with a cozy outdoor campfire on the waterfront. It’s the perfect place to unwind and chat with friends old and new.
