Cedar Bloom will once again remain open for Campers over this next year, however we will close the land to the public in June, allowing for only the Spirit Weavers Community to come and gather in a different way.  The idea isn’t that we gather in our traditional way, because we know that it’s not the time to do so just yet. Rather, we are offering a place to commune with the land at the same time as other sisters and their families. The extent that we gather is completely determined by each individual and their own beliefs and boundaries around safety and what is right for them. We figured, since the land will be safely open to visitors for camping regardless,  why not reserve the month of June for our Spirit Weavers Community exclusively?! This is the perfect opportunity to put into place all of the skills and rituals you have learned over the years within your own camping pods.  With so many classes and experiences happening within the gathering it can often feel overwhelming. We have always dreamed of having a slow and nourishing gathering experience.  Let this be the year for this!  A Blessing in disguise perhaps?  Cedar Bloom is home to so many of us!  Come home and receive the love of this land.

If you would like to join us for this camping experience, you are invited to retreat at Cedar Bloom with the SWG Community in June! Instead of the 5 day curated gathering, you will be welcome to come camp on the land for 7 days and nights during the women only weeks, or bring up to 3 extra family members for 5 days and nights during the all-gender Family Camp weeks. With so many changes in the way in which we now gather, your participation ensures that we can move forward into 2022 and beyond!

This June camping experience will look different than the usual Spirit Weavers Gathering. Some things to note: We will not be holding scheduled skillshare classes, but you are still welcomed and encouraged to share skills within the community as pop up classes. We will not be providing any communal or included meals, and we ask that you come fully self contained with all food and any other camping needs.

We will still share our main Fire throughout the weekend, as well as the Tea House, our Ancestor Altar, a physically distanced DJ dance party on Saturday nights and trade blankets on Sundays.  The Camp Store will be open throughout the weekend, as well as the Sauna. With almost a mile of river throughout the land there will be plenty of private space for river swimming.  After many years of hustle and hard work, this year is an opportunity to retreat and give back to ourselves and the land in which we gather.

How it works:

If you decide to come to one of the Women’s Camps,  your pod site will include a picnic table and will be physically distanced from other sites. Your site can hold 7 people max –  up to 6 other ticket holders, as well as yourself.  If you are coming solo you may want to camp in the solo camping area and should bring your own table and chairs if needed.


June 2-8,  7 days of camping,  Wednesday – Tuesday

June 9-15, 7 days of camping,  Wednesday -Tuesday

Womens Camp: 50 sites max,  with up to 7 ticket holders per pod

If you decide to come to one of the Family Camps your site will include a picnic table and will be physically distanced from other sites. You can invite up to 3 additional members of your family to join your camp.


June 17-21, 5 days of camping,  Thursday-Monday

June 24-28, 5 days of camping,  Thursday-Monday

Family Camp: 50 sites with up to 4 family members per pod

Are Dogs allowed at Camp?

Yes, just as any Campground we allow dogs.  There is a $15 pet fee that you can pay during checkout and we ask that they are on a leash.

How many people will be at each weekend?

As many of you know,  the Cedar Bloom land on which we gather is also a campground. Last summer we hosted thousands of campers that came through the land to escape the cities, the fires and the stress of Covid-19.  Having the land open as a campground for the summer was a huge blessing for us.  It allowed us to create a safe space for families and friends to come and breathe in the fresh air of the forest, receive sunlight on their bodies and be in the company of folks they hadn’t seen in months! We witnessed hundreds of reunions which was so beautiful and heartfelt to experience.  If there is one thing that is safe to do during these times, it’s to be outside in nature. We were grateful that campgrounds were permitted to stay open this year,  as it allowed us to sustain ourselves through the year and stay afloat during these challenging financial times.  When looking into the typical campgrounds within the state that have remained open, most campgrounds have 200+ sites. With only 50 designated campsites on the land throughout the 100 acres,  we have been able to provide a safe place to camp, with plenty of physical distancing and safety precautions considered all year.  We would like to provide this space for our Spirit Weavers Campout for 2021 with 200 campers on the land per session.
