MOMcation 2010: A Retreat for Every MOM

MOMcation is a vacation for Moms.

What: A weekend retreat just for moms and moms-to-be

When: April 23-25, 2010

Where: Heifer Ranch, near Perryville Arkansas

Why: Every mom deserves a little “me” time to relax, repair, and renew!

Who: MOMcation is not affiliated with any business or organization: it is being organized by a group of volunteer moms.

MOMcation 2010 provides a weekend get-away featuring optional workshops and activities that allow you to customize your MOMcation. If you want to attend every event and meet as many moms as possible, that’s great. If you would rather spend most of your time curled up with a great book or your laptop, we’re equally respectful of that. MOMcation is open to any mom or mom-to-be who would like to attend.

Check-in starts at 4pm on Friday, April 23rd. We’ll kick the weekend off with dinner and a welcome party. Saturday features several workshops and activities, including a trail run, cooking demonstrations, a high-tech treasure hunt, a discussion of the book Free Range Kids by Lenore Skenazy, (with more workshops still in the works!) all capped off with an evening camp fire and S’mores. Sunday we’ll share breakfast and some free time before checking out at 11am. There is also a bonus lunch and hike scheduled at Petit Jean State Park for Sunday afternoon.

The registration fee of $170 includes lodging, all activities and workshops, all meals except the Sunday lunch at Petit Jean, a t-shirt, plus a fun swag bag and exciting prize give-aways. There are scholarships available for those with financial need, thanks to our presenting sponsor, Moms Like Me and Today’s THV.

  1. I REALLY wish I could come!

    I hope this event happens again and I am able to come... and please if and when it does happen again... let me know in advance of the date(s). I am a "serious planner" and the sooner I can get it on my calendar, the better!

    I hope the event ROCKS!
