“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”

-DIANE MARIECHILD

 

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF REGISTRATION?

Included in your registration is your chosen accommodations, vegan non-GMO meals (Friday evening, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday morning), and three days of amazing programming brought to you by this year's magic women.

HOW DO I GET THERE? WILL THERE BE A WAY TO COORDINATE CAR POOLS? WILL THERE BE A BUS?

While we are unable to provide transportation to the campgrounds from DC we will be helping co-ordinate carpools via a public Google Doc. On this document you can post if you plan to drive your own car (or rent a car) and how many spots you have available for fellow wild women. If you do not have access to a car you sign yourself up for available spots. 

ARE TRANS WOMEN WELCOME? AM I TOO OLD TO COME? WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

This event is completely open to Trans Women. Anyone who identifies as female is welcome!

This event is for women of ALL AGES!

This event is for all women, of all backgrounds, of all races, of all religions. We aim to create a space for all women to share their love and their wisdom.

CAN I BRING DRUGS/ALCOHOL?

This gathering is completely drug and alcohol free. We aim to create a safe and authentic space for women to gather and know that the presence and use of drugs or alcohol may inhibit the ability for all women to connect with one another. 

I DON'T KNOW ANYONE GOING? HOW CAN I MEET OTHER PARTICIPANTS AHEAD OF TIME?

 WithLoveDC is will host a potluck dinner in the weeks leading up to the gathering. You'll have the opportunity to meet some new friends, ask questions about the event, and coordinate carpools. 

I'M NOT SURE THIS EVENT IS FOR ME. HOW CAN I DECIDE?

Come to other WithLoveDC events in DC or email Heather at madewithlovedc@gmail.com with any questions! 

CAN CHILDREN COME?

YES! Children are more than welcome to come to the gathering. That being said, please note that there will be no formal child-care throughout the weekend. 

IS THIS EVENT ACCESSIBLE TO THE DEAF COMMUNITY?

YES! We will have interpreters at every single scheduled event so that the entire weekend will be open to both hearing and Deaf women. If you sign up for an add-on service, please make sure to contact us if you require an ASL interpreter for your session.

CAN I TEACH?

The official presenters are set for the year. That being said we have an entirely new set of women teach every single year as we feel strongly that EVERY woman has something to offer and wisdom to share. 

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

The entire weekend will be scheduled to allow you to engage and connect and learn and share and grow. The magic women will each be planning at least one class or workshop that will be offered between Friday evening and Sunday night. You may choose to attend any or all of the classes. 

Additionally you can sign up for some optional add-on workshops and services when you arrive. 

If you choose to skip a class you may go hiking, go swimming, meditate, chat with an old friend, make a new friend, write, draw, meditate, sing, dance, or hug a tree. The entire weekend is about creating space for yourself. This means listening in, engaging when you wish to engage and finding solitude when you need to find solitude.

I AM A CREATIVE. CAN I SELL MY ART/JEWELRY/BOOKS/POEMS/POTTERY/ QUILTS/OTHER AWESOME STUFF?

YES! We are super excited to announce that on Sunday afternoon we will be having a MARKET PLACE! All participants are encouraged to bring their art/jewelry/books/goodies/etc. for an open market. Everyone will have the opportunity to set up shop and display their goods. You can buy or barter so that everyone can take home a souvenir (or two, or three, or four) from the weekend while also supporting some really awesome women creators.

CAN I GET A REFUND?

We understand that plans change! If you are no longer able to attend you may request a refund through the ticketing website. Full refunds can be given until September 5, at which point we may offer a 50% refund on your registration. After September 30 no refunds will be granted. 

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Clothing for the forecasted weather, keeping in mind that evenings may be much colder than the day time.

If you are camping you must bring your own tent. If you are staying in a cabin you must bring your own bedding.

Watch, there won't be any phone service, and you'll want to be on time to all the amazing workshops! 

Comfortable shoes for traipsing through the woods.

Flashlights/lanterns

A yoga mat if you would like to practice throughout the weekend.

Journals to write, reflect, and document your weekend. Several workshops have writing components.
