Ultimate Family Retreat

The Ultimate Family Getaway

In this hectic, busy world, sometimes we don’t get a chance to prioritize time with our Children. We only get 18 glorious years with them before they become adults themselves, so now is the time to connect, make those memories and have a blast doing it!

Rustic Mama Retreats Ultimate Family Getaway is the perfect place for you to relax, refresh and reconnect with your children and extended family. You’ll all get the chance to engage in a variety of amazing sessions together such as fun fitness activities, sign making and jewelry making workshops, paddle-boarding, archery, tree-top trekking, dance parties and the opportunity to partake in workshops taught by talented guest speakers on a variety of topics, all designed to be fun, exciting and allow you to relax and make those deeper connections.

Sessions and Workshops

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

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

Adventure more you and your family’s thing? Breathe and relax during a yoga session, 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 push yourself to tackle one of the most fun zip lines in Canada! 

The fun doesn’t stop there! Evenings at Rustic Mama Retreats are filled with entertainment! From Friday night entertainers and games to an epic Saturday night dance party!  We’ve got the perfect recipe for exciting evenings!
