Registration open for Womanfest retreat

Registration is now open for Womanfest’s fall retreat set for Sept. 15-17.

This is the 40th annual retreat hosted by Womanfest at Camp David Jr., the Clallam County park on the north shore of Lake Crescent.

Activities include meals cooked in the lakeside lodge, crafts, walks on nearby trails, swimming, canoeing and other relaxing activities the women choose.

A dance performance, exchanges of books, clothing and coffee mugs also are planned. Women with a craft or skill to share are encouraged to offer it during the retreat.

Registration deadline is Sept. 7.

Cost is $125 and includes all meals, snacks and two nights’ accommodations in rustic Camp David’s cabins.

To register and for more details, go to https://tinyurl.com/Womanfest or contact Sandy Ulf at 360-941-3677 or sluquilt@gmail.com or Sheila Martin, sheilam@olypen.com or 360-461-0292.

Proceeds benefit Woman­fest, a nonprofit North Olympic Peninsula organization comprised of women from Sequim, Port Angeles, Forks and Port Townsend that awards scholarships to local women to further their education and hosts International Women’s Day celebrations in Port Angeles every spring.

“Women value this opportunity to recharge, relax, create and play,” said Barbara Wise, a Womanfest board member who has been attending the retreat since 1987.
