FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Are children invited? While we all adore our tinies and littles and bigs, this retreat is child-free. Hopefully in the future we can host a retreat for the whole family! Ideas for childcare include using respite in your area (contact your agency and/or ask on foster parent Facebook pages for recommendations) or hiring a babysitter certified to watch foster kids. As an alternative, if you’d like to bring a babysitter and stay in a nearby hotel with your child(ren), I can give you recommendations for that.
What’s the goal of the retreat? The retreat is meant to be a space for us to connect, restore, relax, and leave more encouraged than we arrived. While we will have a couple of encouraging speakers, this is not a conference and is not meant to provide practical tips for parenting, foster care, the legal system, or anything else. (Though of course, it’s inevitable that we’ll all share what we know with each other!) If you’re looking for specific, practical help in a specific area, this probably fill that need. We want everyone to leave feeling seen, loved, encouraged, and ready for next steps in their journey.
Is the retreat faith-based? It is likely that some of our speakers and coordinators will share faith-based encouragement, but women of all or no beliefs are entirely welcome! This is not a Bible study or church event.
What are the sleeping arrangements? The beautiful lodges have 24 beds each. Some beds are queen / king, and some are twin. It’ll be first come, first served when we arrive! There is a very nice, communal bathroom with separate toilet rooms and showers. It’s basically like fancy camp with no tents or sleeping bags.
