Women’s Weekend Retreat with YWCA Vermont

Women’s Weekend Retreat at Camp Hochelaga!

Save the Date: Friday, August 25th-Sunday, August 27th

{Disclaimer: We are working with YWCA Vermont to bring you this exciting information!}

Why should the kids be the only ones to get all the excitement of s’mores, campfires, arts and crafts, and fun and games? Women’s Weekend at Camp Hochelaga takes adult summer camp to a new level with an energizing retreat designed just for women that want to have fun, enjoy some relaxation, make new connections, be inspired, and try something new!

Put some “me time” back at the top of the never-ending to-do list! 


This weekend, open to all women 21+, will be hosted at Camp Hochelaga, 30 gorgeous acres right on Lake Champlain in South Hero, Vermont (25 minutes from downtown Burlington). Here’s what you can expect during this fun Summer Camp for Adults!

  • Keynote speaker: racial justice educator and author Debby Irving 

About the keynote speaker: The YWCA is excited to bring racial justice educator and author Debby Irving to Women’s Weekend at Camp Hochelaga. Her first book, Waking Up White, tells the story of how she went from well-meaning to well-doing. Debby Irving grappled with racial injustice without understanding racism as a systemic issue or her own whiteness as an obstacle to it. Now, leading workshops and presentations around the country, Debby devotes herself to exploring the impact white skin can have on perception and how individuals can help themselves and others change misconceptions and attitudes. Be one of the first 25 to register and Debby Irving’s book, Waking Up White, is yours FREE!
