Event description


The meeting place is in Chicago but camp happens in Somewhere Magical...

Life of Yes℠ (LOY) Sleepaway Camp is designed to equip you with a way of thinking and a community rooted in you getting as much as you can out of your life. A weekend filled with habit-, value-, and courage-development activities, in an environment where you feel at home with people you just met... like summer camp for adults.

As seen in the New York Times, SELF, Chicago Magazine, Midwest Living, and Forbes.

Everyone comes solo.
Unplugged—no phones, no tablets, no laptops.
Everything—food, lodging/venue, supplies, schedule—is taken care of.

If you answer yes to one, some, all of these, Life of Yes℠ Sleepaway Camp is for you—

  • Does the idea of expanding your social circle sound appealing?

  • Does doing something for yourself sound unusual, needed, nice?

  • Are all your friends getting married, having babies, moving to the suburbs?

  • Are you only seen as a parent or a spouse, have you lost yourself by taking care of others?

  • Do you say yes to everyone but yourself?

  • Do you feel your relationships are surface-level, that there's not a lot of substance to them?

  • Do you feel stuck in a rut?

  • Do you feel alone?

  • Do you have good friends but are interested in making friends outside of your social circles?

  • Do you want to belong, to feel a part of a community?

  • Have you done everything you're supposed to do - the job, the condo, the schooling, the significant other - but still feel something is amiss?

  • Would you like to say YES! more?

  • Would you like to be around people who say YES! more?

  • Are you tired of feeling bad about yourself because you're ______?

  • Are you tired of trying to impress others, of being someone who you're not? Would you like to be yourself, around other people being themselves?

  • Are you looking for an answer to “What am I passionate about?” “What do I want to do?”

  • Are you ready to move on from and let go of past lows, disappointment, frustration?

  • Do you wish you had more confidence in yourself?

  • Are you tired of being fearful or of feeling like you're sitting on the sidelines watching life pass you by?

  • Do you want to be doing something else professionally?

  • Do you have an entrepreneurial itch?

  • Do you find yourself constantly being envious of others' lives?

  • Are you ready for a change?

  • Are you hard-pressed to think of anything you're good at?

  • Do you think you have a superpower or two that may be of use to others?

  • Do you feel like you're treading water, constantly moving but never getting anywhere?

We will be staying in Somewhere Magical, 90ish minutes from Chicago. We’ll all be together in one building. You’ll be in a bedroom by yourself with all necessary linens included. Shared bathroom facilities. Meals will be home-cooked, family-style, prepared by the venue. We'll all drive together from Chicago van-style.

Admissions are rolling until spots are all taken, then a wait-list will start. If a wait-list has started and you add yourself to it, you’ll get a notification if a spot opens up and you’re next, and then will have a timeframe with which to take the spot. In the spirit of no one knowing anyone, if you register and someone else you know has already registered, you'll get a full and immediate refund. Otherwise, once you register, you're in!

For more info and FAQs, head here.

Check out a pictorial look at camp.

Refund Policy: There are no refunds unless someone from the wait-list is able to take your spot, so make sure you can commit before registering. You can also transfer your registration to someone else by signing into your Eventbrite account and updating the name and email; just let us know you’re doing that. You’re responsible for handling the payment transfer.
