Past Retreat Photos & About Camp Woodmont

Our retreat location is a rustic, yet beautiful camp with acres of wilderness to explore and miles of hiking. A small lake offers space for reflection, napping, reading and relaxing. We gathered at Camp Woodmont back in 2017 for our retreat, Into the Wild: A Wise Woman Gathering. Below are some photos of that event and Camp Woodmont's property.
