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.
At Rustic Mama Retreats we strive to be affordable and accessible to women everywhere. We don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun! While some retreats offer programming of this kind for $800-$1200, we’ve worked hard to offer great value for a much lower cost!

We’re excited to announce that our October 13-15, 2023 retreat at Cedar Ridge Camp will have a very special co-host, Antonietta Botticelli from Abotti! Referred to as the Richard Simmons of the North, Antonietta took a personal journey of weight loss and self improvement and turned it into a thriving fitness company that develops workouts that are inclusive to all, no matter your age, gender, fitness level or ability.
Antonietta first joined us at a Rustic Mama Retreats in 2018 as a guest, but her contagious smile and bright personality made her stand out from the rest. She has returned several times to run fitness workshops, but we are excited to bring her back once again to co-host this event! Get ready to laugh and smile and dance the night away with her!
Good food is important to us! That’s why our camp cooks work hard to provide amazing, nutritious and delicious meals throughout the weekend with both healthy and indulgent options! All meals will include a variety of mains, incredible homemade goods, vegetarian and gluten-free options and a delicious salad bar.
Please be sure to inform us of any food allergies/intolerances or health issues you feel we should be aware of well before arriving at camp. Camp cooks and their staff can satisfy all special dietary needs, as long as we know in advance.
Some wine and alcoholic beverages will be available during the evenings but feel free to bring your own beverages for consumption in your cabin.
What To Pack
It’s always best to expect the unexpected. Typical weather in Fall can include warm days, cool nights and the occasional sprinkle.

Be sure to bring a warm jacket for night-time campfires and star-gazing, as well as a raincoat and rubber boots in case the rain gets the better of us!
