Crafting areas were set up for attendees to create decorative bunting. Then there was the food! Beautifully curated, Pinterest-worthy setups on long dining tables with burlap, turquoise and teal blue tablecloths, fresh fl owers, seashells, it was just a feast for the senses wherever one looked! And always a new friend to be made, a new lifelong sisterhood to be started. This group attracts women from all walks of life, of all ages and levels of camping and outdoor adventure experience to relax and share laughter together in a joyous community of impromptu sisterhood.
