Women's Weekends



Coordinator: Judy Smith, Associate in Ministry 

Women's Weekends at Calumet are among the most popular programs we have here at Calumet. They provide an important opportunity for women to get away for fellowship, relaxation, faith sharing, (maybe some early Christmas shopping, too!) and fun. Come enjoy breakfast buffets, yummy lunches and a special Saturday evening candlelight dinner.

Our weekend includes awesome singing and music, inspirational devotions, a Bible study offered by the chaplain, and exciting Sunday morning worship! With free time in the afternoon, some folks head to North Conway for an enjoyable shopping trip, while others go for a refreshing fall hike, or on local shopping tours with Judy and still others curl up with a favorite book in front of our fireplace. Zumba or yoga will also be offered on Saturday morning and/or afternoon. Depending on the date, the Calumet bus has been known to visit local craft fairs too!

17idaSaturday night entertainment: We look forward to the return of Susan Poulin for all three weekends! Ida, the funniest woman in Maine returns to Camp Calumet with her newest show, a companion piece to Ida’s latest book, The Sweet Life: Ida LeClair’s Guide to Love and Marriage. Ida offers a fresh view on love, marriage, and dating through a combination of sassy stories and commonsensical advice striking the perfect balance between humorous and heartfelt. Whip-smart yet down-to-earth, spending time with Ida is like talking to an old friend—one with plenty of experience and a wicked sense of humor.

And for those who choose it, there is the added amenity of a soothing massage on Saturday with Nancy Carlson and Dixie Lea for a small fee. 

No matter what you choose to do with your time though, the best part is making new friends and re-connecting with old friends.
