Back-to-School for Kids Means “Gone to Camp” for Mom

LOS ANGELES — What’s that strange sound? It’s a kid-free house thanks to a new school year starting. Now, mom has earned her own time. She’s going to camp!
Kids aren’t the only ones who love to race canoes, shoot bows and arrows, hike, do crafts, and savor S’mores around a campfire. Women also flock to camp. The attraction beyond the standard? Massages, facials, manicures, “feminars,” chatting for hours with friends, even napping – AND no makeup, no cooking, no chores, no laundry, no stress at Camp GetAway, California’s camp retreat for women.
Women from 25 to 75 have found a slice of heaven here. Campers arrive in desperate need of a little R&R away from the hassles of home and work. Whether hiking to a waterfall, hand-feeding birds in a peaceful grotto, Scrapbooking, participating in wacky skits, tie dying, practicing yoga, enjoying a therapeutic massage, reading or engaging in youthful horseplay, Campers return home refreshed and relaxed.
Camp GetAway is October 6-8 in the mountains near Big Bear, Southern California. Cost is $295 per camper, plus additional modest fees for craft supplies and spa treatments.
