Nicknamed "Nail Camp" by past Nail Techs attending, this Retreat was the first of it's kind and still the only one in the country to span 4 days and be all inclusive! That means once you are there you don't have to worry about finding a hotel or how expensive the resturant will be that night. You don't need a car to get around because we stay at the facility the full 4 days! Camp Burton is on an island a ferry ride from Seattle is where we have called home for the past 6 Retreats. It is a fabulous waterfront, rustic location with amazing cooks and deer roaming the fields. Its a peaceful location away from the busy city. This isn't the mariott but if you love cabins and the outdoors its perfect. read more

Dying to come to the Retreat but you need to spread out your payments? Take advantage of Paypal's Bill me Later program giving you up to 6 months to pay.
We are not in charge of the Paypal credit system. If you are having problems being able to use Paypal's Bill Me Later Option, contact Paypal Customer Service.

We do not take payments, with so many attendees, chasing after people to make their payments was a full time job so we are happy that many are able to use this Paypal option!


Vicki Peters



This scholarship is in honor of Vicki Peters. A dear friend, incredible nail tech, teacher and competitor, she was a pivotal role at the NW Nail Retreat since its inception. This is the 3rd year we are giving this scholarship. She believed in education for all and was passionate about educating new Nail Techs and veterans alike. We love her passion for the industry and strive to keep her memory alive by providing a scholarship to this event that she loved so much. Please fill this out for yourself or a nail technician you feel is deserving of the scholarship.
The winner of the scholarship will be able to attend the 2017 NW Nail Tech Retreat free of charge. This does not incude travel to the event, if you win, you will have to get yourself to the Retreat. Once at the Retreat, your lodging and meals are provided from lunch Friday through lunch Monday.

The recipient will be selected by Vicki's sisters Diane Peters VonRoyen and Natalie Peters. Winner will be announced by August 15th.

We know how hard it is to afford advanced education as a student! All the educators value students and the Retreat is the perfect place to meet Nail Techs and Educators who can help you launch your career! Learn techniques you will NEVER see in school so you can get off on the right foot!
If you are a student in school or graduated since October 2016, you can use the Student Registration.
