Fall Retreat – Maple Ridge – Loon Lake – September 18 – 20, 2020

Our 5th annual retreat in Maple Ridge will be held at the beautiful Loon Lake Lodge and Retreat Centre nestled among tall fir trees that frame the majestic Garibaldi Mountain Range.

A smaller gathering of 20 women to ensure we have a safety conscious,
socially distanced weekend of self-care.

The sights, sounds, and smells of a wild West Coast forest is a perfect place for quiet reflection. Unplug, relax and connect with a collective of women, who are inspirational and lift YOU up!

The Bentley Family Dining Hall

For many people coming to Loon Lake, the Dining Hall is the heart of the experience. Mealtimes allow attendees to gather together (socially distanced) and share their excitement and experiences. The dining hall is a 2 minute walk from the sleeping accommodations and has ample outdoor seating.

A professionally-equipped kitchen and trained staff offer healthy and nutritious meals throughout the day. Fresh is what Loon Lake does best, and the Chefs are known for creating heart-warming comfort food with a flair for the extraordinary. A true compliment to our group and our collective dietary requirements. All meals include coffee, tea, hot chocolate and a selection of juices and water as well as dessert with both dinner and lunch.
