If you’ve ever been to Atlanta, you are surely aware of the multiple “Peachtree’s” that make navigating the city less than crystal clear! …Peachtree Circle, Peachtree Avenue, Peachtree Place, Old Peachtree, New Peachtree… ask for directions and you’re sure to be told to take Peachtree!

Well we did just fine with our directions last week during our fabulous trip to Atlanta, Georgia where we were holding informational parties about Camp Reveille, the summer camp getaway for women that I created and run every summer. As some may already know, as part of my advocacy and passion for women’s health, I started a summer camp for women a few years ago in Naples Maine called Camp Reveille. I run the 4 day, 3 night program on the grounds of Camp Takajo on Long Lake, one of the children’s summer camps that my husband, Jeff Konigsberg, owns and directs. The wooded grounds are serene, the lake is picturesque, and the camp grounds abound with tennis courts and playing fields for every activity imaginable.

Last week in Atlanta we held two parties at the home of one of our most dedicated campers, Wendy. With the wonderful work and hospitality of Wendy, she and our team invited local women who were interested in finding out more about Camp Reveille to come and mingle, have some cheese and crackers (and delicious brownie bites!), and learn more about the long weekend all-girls getaway. Through her local Atlanta network I met some fabulous women and definitely some wonderful potential campers! I met moms, professionals, teachers, knitters, sisters, and grandmothers. Some of the women are all signed up and have their exercise clothes already packed and some are already writing on my Camp Reveille message board reserving their spot on the sunbathing deck! They all realized that at Reveille there’s something for everyone, and lot’s of choice!

Our parties were really fun and I realized that not only did I myself have the pleasure of meeting a group of wonderful Southern women, but I also caught some networking going on amongst the group! It was a wonderful trip and I can’t wait to have more Reveille parties around the country, it’s such a great way to meet inspiring women and I can’t wait to see them again at camp this summer. We’re going to have a fantastic diverse group of women this year, so make sure to check out the Camp Reveille website to learn all about it and sign up to join in the fun!
