AUW Retreat
April 26 – 28, 2024
Camp Courage in Annandale, MN
Igniting Change
The light we carry in a Barbie world.


The AUW Spring Retreat provides a thoughtful, safe, fun & joyful space for exploring workshop ideas such as self-hate and self-love, our girlhoods, artistry and our power to make change. All the while we build community and deepen connections with each other.


Perhaps you are looking for a deeper connection with awesome & diverse women.

Maybe you would like to sleep in, have a massage, walk the labyrinth, swim in a heated indoor pool, take a nap (or two!), listen to loons, go for nature hikes, be served delicious meals.


It may interest you to consider ideas related to self-love/self hate, artistry, becoming a change-maker, or to discuss Michelle Obama’s “pandemic book” and/or filmmaker Greta Gerwig’s exploration of being female.


You might just want to play with Barbies!


All this is possible at our AUW Spring Retreat, April 26 – 28, 2024, at Camp Courage in Annandale MN, with our theme of “Igniting Change: The Light We Carry in a Barbie World”


Suggested pre read:  The Light We Carry by Michelle Obama
