Join Girls With Guts for our 2019 Annual Retreat!
This year, our annual Girls With Guts Retreat will be in Deckers, CO at Camp Shadybrook from November 1-4, 2019!
This year is going to be bigger and better than ever. We have so many exciting things planned, and we can’t wait to see your smiling faces!
Whats the housing situation?
There are two big lodges where you’ll be staying that have two sides for bunks, and a room in the back. The two sides hold 20-22 people each and the rooms in the back can hold around 10 people.
Whats the bathroom situation?
There is a bathroom in between the two sides of each lodge, one in the dining hall, and one in the dance hall. Camp Shadybrook also provides porta potties all over the place! So you’re never without a bathroom.

Let's talk about sex, baby!
The Girls With Guts 2019 Annual Retreat is talking about all things in-between the sheets (and out of them). IBD and its treatments increase the risk of sexual dysfunction, and women often don’t want to speak to their GI about these issues. Join us for a weekend focused around intimacy and sexual health in women with IBD and/or ostomies.
We’re putting together an interdisciplinary panel of experts, small breakout sessions, and workshops to help you feel empowered while spending time in the comfortable environment of the GWG retreats you’ve come to love. You'll come away from this retreat feeling confident and sexy in your body.
Plus, you'll get to partake in all the perks of our usual retreats - outings, team building, and sisterhood.
Can I carpool with others attending the retreat?
Of course! In fact, for this one, we encourage it! The carpool doc is available here.
