Camp Fire Alaska Wild Women Retreat

July 27-28 | Camp K on Kenai Lake

Summer camp isn't just for kids! Join us for a special weekend at summer camp where women focus on health & wellness, life/work balance, outdoor activities and fun as they connect with Alaska’s beautiful outdoors and each other.

This annual retreat is a vital fundraiser to support the annual maintenance of Camp K on Kenai Lake, one of Alaska’s longest running youth summer camps. Funds raised at this event also help to support the Campership Fund, providing camp scholarships for those kids who otherwise would not be able to experience summer camp.

At the Wild Women Retreat, it's individuality, self-expression, community, friendship and memories that matter the most. Refresh your spirit, nourish your creative soul, and spend time in a wonderful community of women - all for a great cause!

Registration Fee: $350
Includes meals, lodging, yoga, silent auction, and traditional camp activities like kayaking, hiking, target sports.

Registration is open now!

The weekend has always been a time to make new friends, reconnect with old friends, and enjoy the wonderful setting and fellowship!

The Women’s Retreat is one of my favorite events and has become a summer tradition. I look forward to a weekend at camp full of activities, friendship and camaraderie. From kayaking with Camp Counselors to Barb’s Camp Fire stories, supporting an amazing organization has never been more fun!

Retreat Activities


Camp K's waterfront activities include a variety of things like canoeing, kayaking, and swimming or just relaxing with a book on the beach while enjoying the spectacular views. You can even join the "Polar Plunge" club by dunking all the way in the lake! Guided kayaking tours available or take one out on your own when a Lifeguard is present.


There is no better place to unplug and unwind than Camp K. The retreat offers an opportunity to invest in your self-care with yoga, massages, strolls on the beach, and cozy camp fires. All you have to do is bring your own yoga mat!


What's an event without an auction? Not only does the auction at the Wild Women Retreat have some of the best items to bid on like original artwork, certificates to your favorite Alaskan shops and eateries, and plenty of fun experiences to bid on, but all the funds raised in the auction support the ongoing maintenance of Camp K! We want to ensure that Camp K is around for many years to come.

Specialty Classes

In addition to all of your favorite camp activities that are included in registration like kayaking, hiking, target sports, you can add on specialty classes for an additional cost. Classes like, Painting with artist Teri Lindseth, Make Your Own Macramé Plant Hanger, Camp Cooking, or Wine Tasting! These classes are limited in size, first come, first serve.


What makes the Wild Women Retreat so special is the amazing women who attend it. From the corporate world to non-profit leaders, young professionals, mothers, returning friends, and new faces, this truly is an opportunity to connect with other women. The conversations around the campfire last into the night. You will surely walk away from this retreat with new friends.


You might not consider meals an activity, but at the Wild Women Retreat, we do! You will not go hungry at this event, with lunch provided soon after you arrive to the hors d’oeuvres reception, dinner, and ending the day with s'mores over the campfire, you will go to bed with a full belly. Then you wake up to enjoy brunch while you listen to our keynote speaker. All meals provided and we do our best to accommodate dietary needs.

We commit to being an active ally through activities, actions, and organizational decisions and practices. We understand that this is a dynamic process through which our Land Acknowledgement practices, and statement will evolve as we receive feedback from tribal partners and acquire a deeper understanding of and from the Native peoples of Alaska.
