    ...Introducing Camp Dynamo

    You know those days you keep saying you'll take off to work on your business? To actually put time into thinking, planning and making the changes you want?

    The day is here!

    Join us overnight for the most inspiring, dynamic, fun, focused business camp you will ever attend.

    Unplug from your routine to get back in touch with why you started your business, why you love it and why you are so great at what you do.

    YOU KNOW YOU NEED THIS! 

    Whether you work in a corporate environment, run your own small business, or freelance, our truly unique mix of curriculum and activities will break you out of your day-to-day grind, forge lifelong connections, and guide you toward greater success and happiness.

    If you're joining us as a sleepover camper you will be spending Saturday night at beautiful Dalvay by the Sea. If you are interested in staying on Friday night too that can be arranged. Contact Shannon to discuss your options. If you're joining us as a day camper we will see you bright and early on Saturday morning.

    Camp Dynamo is not about learning skills in dark indoor rooms with bad lighting. We’re about getting up and out of a boxed environment. Our goal is for everyone to do something new, be it gain new skills, make new friends, collaborate on new ideas or climb to new heights. 

    Our mission is to help women in business succeed. Our formula is simple; gather a network of like-minded doers, place them in an inspiring environment and provide a curated curriculum that allows them to rediscover the youthful idea that “anything is possible.”

    At Camp Dynamo we work hard to curate the perfect balance of great workshops, activities, hands-on classes and nighttime parties to get you out of your shell, to challenge you, to help you grow and get you to relax, unplug and have FUN. If you're not ever taking time for yourself, how the heck do you succeed in life?!

    You can find FULL DETAILS on Camp Dynamo on our official website HERE.

    Camp Dynamo takes place September 28 - September 30, 2018 at Dalvay by the Sea.
