Just in case some of you are wondering about those awesome retreats I used to do and whether or not they are still happening, I thought I'd take a minute to share a bit more about what's going on with them. Over the years, they have become such a wonderful and needed thing for our moms that we outgrew what any one person could do on their own. Earlier this year, our group incorporated into a formal non-profit (501(c)(3) pending organization called Hope Rising. We've got some really exciting stuff going on over there, too!
First of all, not only will there still be a retreat in Utah this year, but there is also going to be one in Arizona and Wisconsin as well! That's right! We're taking our retreats to our moms in various parts of the country now.
Retreat Dates: September 24-28, 2014
Price: $250-290 depending on the bed you choose

Utah Retreat: This year's retreat will be held at the same amazing place we hosted it at last year. It's a super fun and HUGE cabin nestled high in the mountains above Park City. The cabin is spacious, comfortable, and charming. The scenery is breathtaking. There are also recreation opportunities abounding. Park City offers everything from quaint shops and outlet malls to alpine slides, zip lines, mountain coasters, and all the hiking, biking, and other outdoor recreation you can imagine. Park City is located 35 minutes from Salt Lake City and is home to many still busy and very fun to visit Olympic training venues. Athletes from all over the world train at these venues year round. It's a lot of fun to go watch them, too!
It's convenient location also makes it ideal for moms who will be traveling. The Salt Lake airport is easy to access. We have many moms who pass right by there on their way to the retreat and pick our traveling friends up. We've yet to have anyone need to rent a car.
We currently have 3-4 queen beds and several twin beds, both top and bottom bunks available in Utah.
Arizona Retreat: This retreat will be held in Pinetop, Arizona in the heart of the White Mouintains, midway between Phoenix and Mesa. If you are looking to fly, opt for Phoenix so you won't have to rent a car. Peaceful scenery and recreation opportunities abound. There are also some really fun local festivals going on in this are during retreat time as well. Nothing, however, beats the amazing moms you'll be spending the weekend with.
We currently have a couple queens, a king, and a couple twins left at this location.
Wisconsin Retreat: This retreat will be held in Wautoma,Wisconsin. This is a quiet, rural community located in central Wisconsin, about an hour from Madison and Wisconsin Dells. Our location sits right on the shores of Big Hills Lake. There are lots of waking trails, boating equipment, and the fall colors will be splendid this time of year. And, of course, there's a private hot tub for soaking cares away. (there's one at all locations, actually.)
There's only a couple spots left at this location. We have two top bunks and/or can squeeze in another mom or two on some good quality air mattresses.
If you need some financial help, we have a very limited number of scholarships and also a sponsorship program available to help our moms be able to find the funds needed to attend. You can find out more about those programs here.
Registration is winding down quickly for these retreats! Don't wait until it's too late. We don't want any empty spots. Empty spots means there are still moms out there who need help and support! We want to find them!
