Join us for a fun-filled, energizing, rejuvenating Women's Wellness Retreat at Camp Arroyo!  This popular event draws from the many talents of our various YMCA of the East Bay branches to offer participants a menu of activities to meet nearly every interest.  Participants choose from a variety of activities each activity session featuring choices like yoga, Pilates, hikes, climbing wall, water exercise, organic gardening workshops, dance and much more!  Check-in starts as early as 4:00 on Friday afternoon with a choice activity session that begins at 4:30 p.m.!  These fabulous activities as well as meals from Friday dinner to Sunday brunch, and comfortable accommodations, are all included in the event fee.  In addition participants can choose to spend a little extra to pamper themselves with an hour massage appointment for an additional fee.

Camp Arroyo is the perfect setting, away from it all but right nearby, to relax, rejuvenate, and spend a little time focused on you!  Participants rave about the food, the great activities and the additional fun like campfire and "no-skill needed" dancing, as well as the serene environment. 

Space is limited to ensure a quality experience, so make sure to register early as this event typically sells out.  This event is open to all women, as well as girls age 13 & up if accompanied by their parent.  YMCA membership is not required. To register download the form or event brochure at the bottom of this page.

In their own words - feedback from past participants:


"It was excellent. Gave me time to gain some perspective on my life at home. It was incredibly inexpensive for the value --- like a mini spa retreat."

"Thank you to the directors, the chefs, instructors, and everyone else who worked their butts off to make this an awesome weekend. I know it took a lot of hard work and planning on everyone's part. It is truly appreciated. Great teamwork! Awesome staff-Thank you all!!!"

"I have attended the Women's Wellness Retreat for two years...and look forward to participating for many more retreat weekends. I think the Livermore facility is an incredible site -- layout, facilities, philosophy -- and I feel so "moved" when I arrive and maintain that "healing" throughout my stay there. I like to find a quiet place to read and reflect during my visit, and also like to participate in lots of activities -- the best of all worlds for me! Thanks again to everyone who participated in making this "women's" time so rewarding. Enjoyed the meals -- so delicious, so beautifully displayed! Thanks again to the chef and staff."

"Great time, great cabin mates, great food, great activities, great staff! Mahalo!"

"Absolutely marvellous, will definitely do this again"                                                                                         

We hope to see you at this year's retreat!
