CAMPFIRE COACHING: FUTURE DATES TBD
Photo Credit: Julia Rebecca Photograph
How would a weekend for you be
different if you could ...
Spend it outdoors rather than indoors
Let nature do its work
Enjoy the serenity and adventure of camping in a more luxurious setting
Connect with other awesome women
Get away from it all and decompress
Tap into beauty and joy again and see ho you can bring that back with you into your daily life
Spend time staring into a campfire while enjoying freshly prepped meals
Take time to BE YOU out in the glorious world
Tap back into your centered, quiet place
Find new perspective on what it is that you really want and the next steps to get there
Feel your body and soul soften as you take deep breaths of fresh air, connect with the quiet of the outdoors, and rediscover what is most important to you
Unlike many weekend retreats, this one is less about adding more TO your life and more about simplifying. The goal here is to strip things away, put you back in touch with nature and who you are when you let yourself step away from the everyday and slow down for a bit.
I know that taking a weekend off for yourself is a hard sell.
You have people to take care of, business to run, closets to organize, school to get ready for, roles to fill. The idea of running away to CAMP for a weekend sounds both glorious AND kind of crazy....which is exactly a reason to do it.
I want to share with you that all of the
above reasons, while very real and
difficult, are not unique.
Getting away, taking a break, letting nature do its work and CAMPING can BRING YOU BACK TO LIFE, setting you up to be even a bigger, more productive and happy player in the life you’re leading at home.
Campfires soothe the soul, and you could use some soul soothing right about now.
This isn't the camping from when you were a kid. We're talking canvas "cabin" tents, comfortable beds, wood burning stoves, and contemporary rustic designed interiors and lush furnishings surrounded by nature
You have no idea what you're going to discover about yourself while here, which is exactly why you should come.
A weekend retreat for awesome women who want to slow down, take some time for themselves, connect with other amazing people, get a big dose of killer coaching and mental-space opening, all at a beautiful, all inclusive authentic Adirondack Glamping Retreat.
(And yes ... there will be s'mores!)
What You're Getting ...
Two nights of glamping at Camp Orenda in the Adirondacks, including all meals and snacks.
The opportunity to take long hikes on winding paths and mountain trails, wade barefoot in cool streams, canoe on tranquil lakes or just gaze at the star filled night sky all while enjoying the sounds of the wild.
Killer conversation circles led by coach Allegra Stein where you can plan out big ideas and work through stuck thinking and overwhelm.
Private Coaching time with Allegra
The camp is ours starting on Friday, June 8 at 1 PM until Sunday, June 10 at 11am.
All meals are included, including lunch on the 8th and breakfast on the 10th.
You’ll be assigned to your OWN bed in 1 of 6 tents (options below)
Saturday will be day of optional hiking, canoeing, kayaking, archery or mountain biking, as well as guided coaching and conversation circles. You can choose to stick around camp to read or head out to explore on your own.
I decided to come Campfire Coaching because of Allegra and the energy she emits and attracts. I knew it would be a gathering of bright, strong women looking for focus and that Allegra with her soothing words of logic could help us achieve goals we would otherwise believe unachievable.
This weekend is a time to just be yourself. It's perfect for someone with a lot of ideas who doesn't know how to implement them.
I went there thinking that I didn't have much to address/discuss/think about and I left with goals that I didn't realize that I had floating around. Kind of like a thought tornado where it's all willy nilly at the top and comes to a point at the bottom.
I also left feeling as though I had some sort of connection with each and every woman there. I've never experienced that before.

About your host ... Allegra Stein
I'm Allegra Stein - Adventurer, Wife, Mom, and Coach to Inspired and Overwhelmed high-performers.
Trained under Brooke Castillo of the Life Coach School, mentored by Master Coach Joyce Campbell, and inspired by the work of Steve Chandler, Michael Neill, Jamie Scott, Tara Brach and more, my coaching incorporates elements of powerful Thought Coaching, NLP, and Three Principles understandings.
My clients have for the first time taken vacations and left their cell phones in their hotel rooms. Started saying "No" to draining requests of their time and energy. Created movements. Written books. Moved across the country. Redefined, committed to, and taken action to create what they most want.
How’d they create such monumental shifts? Not by adding any more to their already full plates, but by being willing to create space in their lives and in their thinking for their own wisdom, creativity and well-being to shine through.
Much like a lead spelunker shines light into the corners of the darkest caves to reveal their true, hidden beauty, my coaching is designed not to add more to my clients’ lives but to show them the capacities that are already there.
My clients have a beautiful willingness to see fear and excitement as a beacon to walk towards rather than a warning light to avoid. My people are up to big things - on both their internal journey towards self-awareness AND externally in what they want to do and create in the world. Through powerful conversations, my clients’ willingness to experiment with new ideas between our sessions, and the Unlimited Coaching I provide through the length of our work together, my clients experience an internal shift and centering without compromising their love of external action and project creation.
I decided to go Campfire Coaching Because I know Allegra rocks and that she would make it amazing. And, who can resist glamping?? I was also excited to get away from it all for a couple of days.
The whole weekend went by too quickly. The schedule was perfect. Not too much, just enough group activities and NO pressure to do anything you didn't want to do. I was surprised by how much I loved all of the ladies that I met and how quickly we all bonded!
Campfire Coaching is perfect for someone who is feeling overwhelmed and rushed through life. It’s a weekend to slow down, disconnect from the world and reconnect with yourself.

When Allegra and I reconnected and started working together again I was feeling afraid on some levels to actually move forward with that I really wanted. Allegra is a trusted sounding board. She isn’t the kind of coach that often tells me exactly what to do. Instead, she listens to what I’m going through and comes back with strategies for me to work on regarding said struggles. You know how when you take a shower and the bathroom mirror ends up all foggy, then you go to put on makeup or brush your hair? You can see the outline, a blurred image of what you look like. Allegra’s sort of like the hand that wipes away the fog so I can see myself more clearly.
I trust Allegra, and when we work together, I end up feeling more effective and confident.
