Autumn Retreat


 Imagine a fun-filled, relaxing weekend devoted to working on your albums with your friends or family or other creative souls. Come to this charming retreat and conference centre on the Indian Arm. If you are looking for a chance to scrap your heart out or work on your albums this is it! If you just want to get away with some good books or movies that is great too. Cropping, on site workshops and great buffets. What a great time to have with old friends as well as making new ones! This wonderful weekend retreat is open to all who wish to attend. Your adventure begins aboard one of Camp Jubilee's certified passenger vehicles for a short 30 minute boat ride from Deep Cove in North Vancouver, British Columbia. You can stay in a cedar cabin that offers bunk style beds complete with bathrooms and stunning views of Indian Arm. Lodge rooms are also available upon request. Babes in arms are welcome. The facilities are comfortable with rustic accommodations and true west coast hospitality from the staff. We leave around dinner time generally on Friday night and after unloading have a snack or dinner depending on time of departure and arrival. You can spend the evening getting settled or start craft projects right away. You need to bring slippers or indoor shoes a sleeping bag or bedding, a pillow if you like one, your own materials if you will be scrapbooking or cardmaking or quilting or knitting. If you want extra snacks there is a refrigerator available for our use. There is a small library and lounge with wifi if needed. You will be served breakfast, lunch and dinner plus some snacks with fresh fruit, coffee and tea always available. Special dietary needs must be expressed ahead of time for staff to prepare. The cost is $175 per person. Camp Jubilee is situated right on the water. So restful and peaceful! We will return around 2pm on Sunday.

optional classes

Spring 2013

Hi Ladies!
I am excited about next weekend. There are only 15 of us so far, so I  had to email the camp to see if it is still viable for them to have us come up. I've told them that we were prepared to use the downstairs area, since there are not very many of us. We will all have our own table, on the positive side of things!! Also, Miranda, our masseuse, knows that there are only 14 ladies going. We have 5 - 60 minute sessions planned for her, and 1- 30 minute sessions. If anyone else is thinking about having a massage, you can pay her at the camp, but she just wants to know in advance, so she can decide if it is viable for her to come up, since she has to pay the fee, as well.

If you know of anyone else who is wanting to come, please bug them to email me, so I can get the final numbers to the camp before the weekend.
That's all!
Last time we had a group this small it was nice and intimate.  IT will be so nice and QUIET!!! he he he! NIce and relaxing with TONS of room for us to craft!!
If you have any questions, and if you want to add a massage session ($1 per minute) please email me back!!
Enjoy the rainy Sunday (a great time to scrapbook!!)
