When we got this farm I never in my life thought we would get to a point where I was comfortable inviting people from near and far to see it. Even though it was always the goal, it always felt so far away.

But 2018 will be our third summer enjoying this magical place and we are ready for you. Ready for you to schedule a day for yourself. Ready for you to have all the feelings we have on the daily when we are here. Ready for you to learn a new skill or two, enjoy delicious food & relax.

Camp Sweetwater • July 21st, 2018

Call up your bestie, grab your sister, come solo, leave your kids at home & come join us for this one day extravaganza on the farm.


who is camp for?

I created Camp Sweetwater for you. It's purpose is to allow women to have fun, leave behind their real life for a day & spend time creating, relaxing, and enjoying the best life has to offer–which I firmly believe is a combination of Northern Michigan, lavender, good food, good wine, and being creative– among other things.

More behind the scenes, kalin style

When I dreamed up this event, I threw everything I would want in one day at the farm together. You'll come in the morning, we'll do some gentle, beginner yoga in the lavender, we'll hang for a bit, you'll take a lavender wreath workshop with me, you'll learn to hand letter with Ampersand Lettering Lab, you'll wander the farm and relax in a lounge area, hang by the bonfire, and we'll all meet until the bistro lights at a beautifully styled table for dinner.

Monstrey MacDonald & 307 Events are both incredible sponsors of this event. I am so grateful!

You've got questions, I've got the answers


What if I don't live up north? 

A LOT of people attending don't live locally, we recommend staying at any of the nearby motels / hotels / airbnbs in our wonderful area. If you want a personal recommendation, just shoot me an email!

What city should I stay in?

We are in Petoskey, just a 5 minute drive from the downtown area. Charlevoix is 25 minutes. Boyne City is 25 minutes. Harbor Springs is 25 minutes. And Bay Harbor is 10 minutes.

Will there be any free time? 

YES! We are scheduling in a break in the afternoon. This is so you can run to the beach, shop downtown, grab lunch with your bestie, lay in the lavender and take a nap, run home to let your dog out or just sit and chat with a new friend --this is your day to enjoy.

When will you have more details? I need to plan.

A final detailed schedule will be coming soon into your inbox, but in the mean time, plan on Camp running from 9 AM - around 9 PM with an afternoon break.

I wanna come, but I can't make it to everything, is there a discounted ticket for just the workshops or dinner? 

No. Your ticket includes the entire day of activities.

Is this appropriate for my young daughter? 

We are recommending that this event is best for adults.

What if it rains? 

It won't. But if something happens and it does, fear not! We are event professionals, we will be under a tent if that happens and make the best of it!

If I change my mind, can I get a refund?

We are not issuing refunds or transfers for this event under any circumstance. 

But I don't own a creative business, is this what that's about? 

Absolutely not. This day will have zero business sessions or talk. It's about women supporting women and taking time for themselves. You deserve this.

So I buy my ticket and I'm good?

Yup! We will have vendors / food add-ons that you have the option of purchasing. So if you want a fresh smoothie, or to purchase some goodies from the day, please bring a wallet.

I am mean and nasty and a bully, should I come to this?

Please stay home. We are all about Good Vibes Only.

So what's this gonna run me?

The ticket price for 2018 is $299.

Purchased separately, each of these items together would run you well over four-hundred dollars. This will be the highlight of your summer.

Thinking of waiting, or always the gal who RSVP's maybe? I wouldn't if you really want to come! Did I mention that seats are hella limited? They are. Snag yours today before they are sold out!
