How do I get to the retreat?
Travel info on Directions page:
I downloaded a form and it won’t open on my computer.
Some of PWCA’s forms are PDF files, and some are DOC files. The last three letters of the file name will identify which type of file it is.
If you can’t open a PDF file:
- You need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. You can download it here.
- As an alternative, if you have a Google account, you can upload the file to Google Docs and view / print it from there.
If you can’t open a DOC file:
When will I find out whether I will be getting a scholarship?
Two weeks after deadline for getting filled out form to PWCA.
What is required for me to become a camp organizer?
Requirements for organizers are that they attend at least two meetings and complete a significant task during that planning year. They will also be called upon to perform certain tasks associated with the set-up, activities and take-down of camp. Our pre-camp set-up day is considered one of the most enjoyable of the entire event. PWCA pays for the room and board of organizers who qualify on this day.
Will I receive a newsletter every year after I’ve been to camp?
You will receive two newsletters in the year following the camp you attended. If you don’t return to camp the next year, you won’t receive them. However, if you make a donation of $20 or more to PWCA, you will get the next two newsletters.
I would like to offer massage at camp. How do I sign up and what is required?
Massage, energy work, and all other forms of body work can be offered to campers by signing up on this form. (link)
Here is what you will need:
- proof of liability insurance
- your own set up and props (although, if you don’t have a tent in which to set up, a room or other space will be assigned to you by the fee-for-service coordinator IF space is available.)
- you will need to make a sign-up poster, which is best done at camp after you have seen the camp schedule.
- you will be asked to give a short explanation of what you are offering at one of our morning programs.
A meeting will be arranged at camp by the fee-for-service coordinator to organize and place practitioners.
Fifteen percent of all fees collected will go to PWCA’s scholarship fund which helps more women attend camp.
How can I participate in the retreat marketplace?
We prefer that all items sold in the marketplace be made and/or designed by the artisan who is selling it. You may apply for marketplace by filling out this application form. (link)
We can provide a few tables, but if you can bring your own, it helps with the overall set-up. Also recommended is that you bring your own umbrella or shelter in which to set up. Our market days are often hot and sunny and shelter is needed for people and delicate crafts.
The marketplace coordinator will assign you a spot in the meadow. There will be camper helpers assigned to give you a hand with set-up and take-down. It will be your responsibility to bring props and displays and to ensure that your items are safe in the case of wind and rain. PWCA is not responsible for loss or damage of goods for sale.
Marketplace lasts for 2 days only. Fifteen percent of all sales will go to PWCA’s scholarship fund, which helps more women afford camp.
More details will be given to you at camp.
