Education Opportunities


60 Mintute Classes - Registration not Required


  • Incredible Improvements

  • Sunday Workshops

  • Monday Workshops

  • 60 Minute Classes

  • All attendees will be able to choose 5 one hour classes over the course of the weekend. You do NOT need to register for these classes. You will be able to choose your classes when you receive the schedule AT CAMP. Many classes will be taught more than once to allow you to be able to attend the ones you want to go to most. You will NOT be able to go to every class you want to attend! We know, its SO difficult choosing between so many incredible classes and every year attendees want MORE classes, but we can't fit more in the schedule unless the Retreat was a week long. So choose your classes wisely!
    There will be a 30 minute break between classes, this is your shopping time! Each company has the products for sale set up in their areas. Ask questions and buy the products during those 30 minute breaks. There will be additional shopping time in the evenings after dinner as well, so you do not need to use valuable class time shopping.
