Event description

Description

Running Wild Retreat It is an opportunity for the LGBTTQQIAP2S Community and Allies (Supporters of LGBTQQIAP2S folks) to celebrate self identity, have tons o’fun, and make friends along the way. During this 3 day adult retreat there will be performers, workshops, contests, and music to keep you entertained. If a more relaxing experience is what you are looking for, feel free to engage in meditation, Hatha and/or Acro Yoga, chill on the dock,or go for a swim in the lake. We encourage laughter, creativity, self expression, and support for one another. You will leave with lasting extraordinary memories that will hopefully hold you over until we all meet again next year for a new adventure.

The Retreat is on Lil'wat Traditional Territory. Gerald Gabriel from Lil'wat nation describes himself as a "cultural role model" and will be present throughout the weekend at the event.
