Moms Retreat


Camp Odayin offers two Moms Retreat experiences in different regions of the Midwest.  Heart moms may choose to attend either session, but may only attend one.  Moms Retreat weekends include meals, lodging, optional “me time” activities, fabulous guest speakers and camaraderie.  Both retreats begin on Saturday morning and conclude at noon on Sunday.  Hotel rooms will be double occupancy.

Camp Odayin welcomes transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming parents to attend the Moms Retreat or Dads Day. Please contact us if you have any questions prior to registering.


Please contact to receive registration details in March.

Any mom of a heart child in 12th grade or younger is eligible to attend a Moms Retreat. Similar to our summer, winter and family camp sessions, the suggested cost to attend is $25.  During registration you have the option to choose between $0-$250.  You decide the level of payment you are comfortable with during the registration process.  The remaining funds will be raised by Camp Odayin on your behalf.

The Camp Odayin Moms Retreat weekend will seek to improve the quality of life of caregivers through the following objectives:

  • Provide emotional support – Through time with other caregivers, heart moms will strengthen their support system and validate each other’s experiences
  • Provide an opportunity for self-care – Heart moms will be offered restorative sessions and learn stress reduction techniques
  • Empower and strengthen –  Heart moms will gain resources and have opportunities to ask questions of experts to better support themselves and their families

Moms Retreat weekends are planned by amazing committees of volunteer heart moms!
