Women’s Outdoor Weekend

Ladies, shake off your work week stress and head to Gordon’s Park on gorgeous Manitoulin Island for the annual Women’s Outdoor Weekend from June 24th to 26th! Be pampered with healthy and delicious meals, enjoy fabulous events and activities, and great company for a weekend getaway that will leave you feeling happy, satisfied, refreshed and revitalized.

Beginning at 7 pm on Friday, June 24th, get into the swing of things with a Welcome Wine and Cheese Campfire. Then take a sensational journey through the stars with some stargazing and observing with a telescope, and a Laser Guided Sky Tour.  Let the magic of the night sky and the quiet sounds of nature lull you into restfulness as you head off to bed.

Book an appointment for Saturday in advance, and luxuriate in an optional private Swedish massage to really unwind.

Start Saturday morning, with relaxing Hatha Yoga by the pool and then get energized for the day with a delicious breakfast. Out on the hiking trails, meandering through the forests with your guide, you can forage for your own wild ingredients for a nice cup of tea to enjoy while doing your Mandala Meditation art later in the afternoon.

After lunch, we will get your creative juices flowing with an assortment of craft activities.  Make your very own walking stick, splash it with some groovy neon paints, and add some beads and feathers.  Try bleach dying and tie-dying with funky stencils of owls, wolves, and other outdoor themes.

Enjoy a dip in the heated pool and bask in the sunshine during the afternoon Pool Party. Treat yourself with a refreshing delightful summer time drink from the Bar-Rita and fuel up at dinner to prepare for the Karaoke party and belting out your favorite 70s, 80s, and 90s songs. Our nighttime campfire will include chocolate, and other tasty treats and when all is said and done and tasted, let the glow of the campfire hypnotize you to sleep.

Enjoy the relaxing pace set for Sunday the 26th with some morning tea and coffee with coffee cake and tea biscuits.  Then enjoy some free time shopping, hiking, and packing, before heading out as a group to the fabulous Garden Shed Café for an amazing buffet lunch to wrap things up and to send you off in style.

This is the kind of weekend you deserve! Share it with your mom, your sister, your daughter, your friends, or just bring yourself and make fabulous new friends!
