Sisterhood By Choice



In the summer of 2005, 15 volunteers gathered to design a weekend getaway to uplift and support busy women, while making a difference for others. Built on the desire to be “women helping women,” we focused on designing a “Summer Camp” with education through hands-on workshops, inspiration via storytelling, and activities to connect with our mind, body, and spirit, and each other. From fly fishing to yoga, Bow-tique Shopping to Personal Services, we attracted amazing women from all walks of life for 2006, first-ever CampExperience™ Retreat. Together we raised $20,000 for charity in that first weekend and the magic of the Sisterhood began….


The CampExperience™ Network organizes an annual retreat and a full year of events designed for the education, inspiration, and connection of amazing women. Our “sisterhood by choice” builds our businesses and ourselves, while focusing on the betterment of our community and the world. And we have FUN!


  • Everyone is special: valued, gifted, complete.

  • Love is boundless for our Sisters, our families, our community, and ourselves.

  • Sisterhood and the benefits of support and love are a choice for any women. All are welcomed!

  • Experiences Connect Us! Joy, laughter, and FUN are key components to all we do.

As The Story Goes…..$400,00 Cash, $250,000 In-kind Donations and Thousands of Hours of Priceless Support
