Hilary and Kelly, co-founders of RootedConnectionsRetreats, are both licensed clinicians who have worked together for years. We are passionate about what we do, as we know that Nature is a powerful healer, and that intentional, nature-based experiences can positively impact individuals, families, and communities.

Who We Serve
Our trips are designed primarily for women, though we do offer some coed and family retreats. Many of our destinations involve flat-water canoeing or kayaking, though we facilitate "front-country" experiences as well. While we foster "expeditionary behavior" (helping with group tasks/gear), we do much of the heavy lifting for you. We partner with amazing organizations to provide comfortable gear and delicious meals .
Our destinations include desert landscapes (The Colorado River, The Green River, etc), rainforest environments (Prince William Sound, Alaska; San Juan Islands, WA), tropical waters (The Everglades, Fl), and more. Many of our trips are multi-day expeditions, though we also offer weekend workshops. See where we are heading this year!
Are you ready to connect more deeply to yourself and others? Take a break from external responsibilities, stressors, and technology? To be awed by the beauty of nature? To create life-long memories? To engage in conversations and ceremonies which shift our "default mode" to create lasting change? To return home rejuvenated and resourced?
If so, we are here to help!
