Drink the Wild Air

Due to COVID-19, this retreat has been cancelled.

The normal cancellation policy has been suspended and full refunds will be issued to all registrants.

Date: March 20 – 22, 2020
Location: Nestor Lodge, Kamp Kiwanis in Bragg Creek
Ages: The retreat is for young writers ages 12 to 19.
Cost: $215 (Price includes meals, Friday dinner to lunch on Sunday, overnight accommodations, classes, and evening activities.)

Drink the Wild Air is our homage to the joys of WordsWorth proper in July, and this is your personal invitation to join us from March 20 to 22, 2019, out at Kamp Kiwanis for a weekend of community and creativity. We’ll explore the scenic woods as they dream of Spring’s imminent springing. We’ll sing songs by the fire, bathe in starlight, and get a few lungfuls of that rarefied air coming in off the Elbow River as it makes its way to Calgary.

Registration is now open, so ring the bells and bang the drums—when winter ends, spring will come! Until then, may your holiday season be filled with all things nourishing to the body, mind, and soul.
