Registration closes Sunday for Womanfest retreat at Lake Crescent

The gathering, slated Sept. 23-25, will include relaxing activities, meals and accommodation, all for $110.

PORT ANGELES — Registration closes Sunday for Womanfest’s fall weekend retreat, set for Sept. 23-25.

The retreat has been held annually for more than 30 years at Camp David Jr., the Clallam County park on the north shore of Lake Crescent.

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

The cost is $110 and covers all meals, snacks and two nights’ accommodation in rustic Camp David’s cabins.

Proceeds benefit Woman­fest, a nonprofit organization composed of women from Port Angeles, Sequim and Port Townsend that awards scholarships to local college students and hosts International Women’s Day celebrations in Port Angeles every spring.

“The retreat is always wonderful,” said Barbara Wise, a Womanfest board member who has been attending the retreat since 1987.

“Women value this opportunity to recharge, relax, create and play.”

To register and for further details, go to www.womanfest.org and click on “Fall Retreat.”
