When you arrive at the parking lot, staff will be there to transport you and your stuff to your weekend accommodations.
Our first shared meal is dinner so plan on having lunch on your way.
If you need to arrive later than 2pm, no problem, please just let us know in advance by emailing email@example.com
Please put this address into either google maps, waze or apple maps. Please do not rely on out of date GPS systems (the ones in cars often get the directions wrong).
Trails End Camp

Beach Lake, PA 18405
You can also get detailed directions here.
You may even want to print directions or download them to your phone as cell service can get spotty as you get up into the mountains!
If you have any trouble please give the Rise team a call:
Diana: 917-715-4686 | Tink: 484-942-5232
We do not provide transportation from the airport. If you are looking to carpool from the airport we suggest you post your arrival time and request to carpool in our Weekend Facebook Group
There are two things you need to signup for before you arrive – workshops and add-on experiences.
Movement classes are open and do not require registration, but take a look so you can pre-plan what you’d like to do!
There are four workshop time slots during the weekend that you register for your choice of workshops in advance.
If you have not yet registered for your weekend workshops do it now!
Need to change your workshop or be reminded of what you signed up for? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the weekend there are open classes that do not require registration. These classes vary from workouts to meditation - there’s something for everyone and you are welcome at as many or as few classes as you’d like to attend, just show up! You can review the classes here. Go ahead and plan out what you’d like to do!
Here’s a few things we invite you to consider as you anticipate the weekend:
Disconnect to Reconnect
You are going to unwind in a big way. Part of that is disconnecting from your devices.
We invite you to disconnect with email, social media, phone calls, and anything else that can wait in order to connect fully with the Rise experience. Cell phone use is restricted to private spaces out of view and earshot of others. If you’d like to go “full detox” you can simply leave your phone in your luggage or your car. Notify your loved ones that you are taking this time for you.
Leave No Trace
We pledge to enjoy our natural world in a sustainable way that avoids human-created impacts. In order to do this we ask you to deposit trash and recycling in appropriate containers, minimize your use of disposables by carrying your water bottle and travel mug, and be thoughtful about caring for your beautiful surroundings.
Please be considerate of all others and the setting.
No Rules Rule
As an adult camp we have the privilege of doing what we want! Listen to your heart and follow it. Over the course of the weekend we encourage you to take time when you need it to wander and explore the setting. Sit by the lake, go on a walk, lie under a tree – there are no right or wrong places to be as you Rise!
Please honor the session experiences and facilitators by arriving on time and only attending one workshop during a session time. (We know it’s hard to pick just four, but there’s always next year!!)
And in case it wasn’t obvious, Rise is the place to step out of your comfort zone, let go of judgement, try new things, let it out, and have some serious fun!!
Honor and get to know your Rise Weekend Women! These connections are at the core of our community. Invite them to play with you, chat and explore as you make incredible new friends.
Keep Rising Together
We are building a community of supportive, inspired women and this is just the beginning. We want to stay connected and for you to know that your feedback is valuable to all future Rise Gatherings. Our team is open for any communication at and after Rise, and we are excited to deepen our connection to you.
Rise Gatherings Retreats are women-powered, and we believe in the power of our collective presence. Close to our heart is our partnership with Days for Girls. We donate a portion of the proceeds from every Rise Experience to Days for Girls. We support their commitment to providing sustainable menstrual care and education. Just by attending Rise Gatherings Annual Weekend Getaway you are supporting women and girls around the world.
