YWCA Vermont is proud to provide a long weekend program completely dedicated to bringing together a strong community of women and non-binary people. Hosted at Camp Hochelaga in early September, Women's Weekend offers a beautiful space for folks to explore nature, be challenged, practice self-care, and create a supportive network with peers.
Any time women come together with collective intention, magic happens. So much magic happens during YWCA Vermont Women's Weekend at Camp Hochelaga. The camp environment is the perfect setting to invite the Women's Weekend community to build connections and experience this magic together. Sharing meals together, trying new things together, and having meaningful conversations together all foster this feeling of a tight-knit, supportive community at Women's Weekend.
Focusing on the three main pillars of building community, encouraging empowerment, and appreciating nature YWCA Vermont Camp Hochelaga offers small group workshops, larger all group programming, and traditional playful camp activities as dynamic ways for participants to engage in the full Women's Weekend experience.

Cabins: sleep 6-8 people, you can request a cabin mate(s) during the registration process, and if you are a single participant you will be grouped with other participants at random (typically no more than 4 per cabin). Each cabin bunk comes with a twin size mattress (you are asked to bring your own linens, a packing list will be emailed to a few weeks before check in). Each cabin has screened windows and doors.
Canvas Platform Tents: sleeps 2-3 people comfortably with cots and mattresses offered. No screens, but you can bring bug netting if you'd like. There is also lots of green space available if you would prefer to pitch your own tent!
Our kitchen team works hard to give our participants a variety and take extraordinary care in accommodating for dietary restrictions. We are proud to serve nutritious and delicious meals made fresh in our own kitchen, locally grown, and served to make you feel at home at Camp Hochelaga.
If you have any food allergies or dietary needs, please list them in your online registration or contact our office directly to discuss an individual food plan.
