2023’s Christmas Crafting Retreat will be held at Camp Trillium, located just 1 hr outside of the GTA. Nestled on 142 acres, this camp offers gorgeous views of their 35 acre private lake, as well as incredible activities such as rock climbing, high ropes, and archery.
Built in 1998, this facility is modern and features 8 large accessible cabins with a semi-attached design. There are several rooms within each cabin and all have heat, hydro and several outlets. Washrooms, with showers, are located inside each cabin, so no need to wander outside in the middle of the night.
Most cabins accommodate up to 12 people so be sure to let us know if you have any cabin mate requests or come with a large group of friends and have a cabin all to yourselves! Remember to bring your own pillow and sleeping bag.
A Kingston/Ottawa area location is in the process of being added as well.
Trillium’s very own cooks will provide amazing, nutritious and delicious meals throughout the weekend with both healthy and indulgent options! Meals will include incredible homemade baked goods, vegetarian 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. Our incredible chef and his staff can satisfy all special dietary needs, as long as we know in advance.
Wine will be available throughout the weekend but feel free to bring your own beverages as well if you wish.
What To Pack
Typical weather in November can be somewhat unpredictable. Be sure to bring a warm jacket, boots and hat for any outdoor adventures you choose to go on… or just relax in your pajama’s all weekend! We won’t tell!
