Travel News: "Summer Camp" for the Grown-Up Soul

Image placeholder title

What do meditation, hip-hop dance classes and microbrew tasting all have in common? They are among the dozens of diverse activities offered at the 15th Annual Ladies Get-a-Way Weekends at Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT. Offered March 5-8, 2015 and March 19-22, 2015, Ladies Get-a-Way weekends have become a tradition when groups of female friends “take over” the resort, which is filled with non-stop entertainment from check-in to check-out. Guests can take advantage of Lake Morey’s Ladies Get-a-Way Two-Night/Three Day package to experience this one-of-a-kind, women-only weekend.

The two-night package (Friday – Sunday) starts at $281 per person, double occupancy, plus 18% service charge and 9% VT tax. Each additional adult in the room is $90/night. The package includes lodging, breakfast and dinner daily, a welcome reception, in-room gift, and all entertainment and classes. Spa services are available for an additional charge.

More like a mini-summer camp than a typical spa weekend with girlfriends, the Ladies Get-a-Way Weekends offer an engaging line-up of activities that can inspire women in a wide range of interests. More than a dozen different complimentary lectures, workshops, and entertainment are offered throughout each day, with a faculty of instructors who are experts in their field. A sample of offerings for 2015 includes:

  • How to REALLY Taste Beer, a special tasting led by Lake Morey Beer Master Jon LaPointe
  • Be Your Own “Repair Woman” with Home Improvement 101, a hands-on session from the Buildings and Grounds Supervisor, Ken Champagne
  • Dream of Being the Next Star of a Television Cooking Show? Flaunt Your Culinary Skills at Lake Morey Resort’s Kitchen Challenge, hosted by Chef Geoff and the kitchen crew

Fitness buffs can get their hearts pumping at the total body work-out class, stretch and breathe during yoga, or take a dip in the indoor pool. Those seeking enlightenment or greater self-awareness can meet with a life coach or practice the art of meditation, while the artistically inclined can flourish during arts & crafts classes. Each session is offered multiple times, and participants can attend as many as they wish.

Nightly entertainment varies from live band karaoke to live music, as well as continuous movie marathons in the resort’s 120-seat indoor movie theater, complete with popcorn and beverage of choice. A complete schedule of events will be available on Lake Morey Resort’s website starting January 15, 2015.

For more information, visit or call 1-800-423-1211. Lake Morey Resort is located at 1 Clubhouse Road, Fairlee, VT 05045.
