Mama and Son Retreat

Mama and Son (8+) Retreat

November 8-10, 2019 at Camp Mini Yo We

The Ultimate Mama and Son Getaway

In this hectic, busy world, sometimes as moms, we don’t get a chance to prioritize time with our Sons. Let’s be honest, there just isn’t a ton of activities for Moms and Sons to do together! That’s why the Mama and Son Retreat was born! 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 Mama and Son Getaway is the perfect place for you to relax, refresh and reconnect with your son and yourself. You’ll both have the chance to engage in a variety of amazing sessions together such as rock climbing, archery, outdoor survival skills, fitness classes, art workshops, sign making, cooking workshops and so much more. Everything is 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 Mama and Son 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 Mama and Son escape!

Maybe you’ll spend the morning creating a masterpiece! Take a guided painting workshop, bake up a storm or try your hand at making a rustic wooden sign, paracord bracelets or some amazing DIY crafts. 

Adventure more you and your son’s thing? 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 some outdoor survival skills!

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 party!  We’ve got the perfect recipe for exciting evenings and we always have campfires and s’mores!
