Women’s Camping, Hiking and Yoga Retreats

Retreat with us to the local mountains of San Diego County this summer and enjoy  pine trees, lakes and cool breezes, all closer to downtown than you think!

This fall and winter camping will be in the nearby desert with HOT SPRINGS. Expect fully loaded night skies and laughter throughout the days.

Professional yoga instruction.

At all of our women's camping, hiking and yoga retreats all you have to do is show up to the campsite with your clothes and sleep system and we take care of the rest.

We provide a fully stocked campsite, hot camp-style meals and snacks, trail food, hot and cold beverages, tent, dishes...  everything else you need to enjoy camping.

Campfires every night!

Empire Within Us is growing community of likeminded women who are looking for time outside to connect with themselves, other women and the outdoors.  We primarily accomplish these goals by camping, hiking and yoga(ing) together.

Membership to Empire Within Us

When women are together it is a magical space where we can be ourselves, let it all hang out, and find comfort in being Us. 

Every time we get together I am blown away by the honesty, humor and compassion that is shared (in abundance!)
