Summer Seminars for Women

Summer Seminars for Women returns to Miniwanca Aug. 4 to 8.

The American Youth Foundation is thrilled to welcome Summer Seminars for Women back to the sand dunes of Miniwanca in 2022!

SSW is a unique opportunity for women of all ages to come together for learning, reflection and relaxation through individual and group activities around camp. Join us for a retreat that will feed your mind, body and soul as we connect with each other at Miniwanca.

Miniwanca provides a natural environment for women of all ages to come together and share stories and experiences as they learn more about themselves and each other. Bring a friend, daughter, grandmother, roommate, colleague or sister. All are welcome to come for friendship and laughter in a circle of wonderful women.
