Moms On Fire
A retreat for moms
Join us for a relaxing, invigorating and enlightening two-night retreat for mothers at Pierce’s Inn in Etna, NH. Experts from across the country, and from a variety of fields will facilitate workshops and presentations on a range of topics. The focus for the sessions include: Maintaining Emotional Health, Raising Resilient Kids, Artistic Expression, Making Change in the World, Body Image and Female Friendships, and Zumba!
For three years, mothers who have been sending their daughters to Girls’ Leadership Camp have been begging us to do something for them. This is your chance to experience what these girls have been talking about. It is an opportunity for strong women to get together and share everything from letting it loose with Zumba to discussing the impact of media on the body image and self-esteem of women and their daughters.
