“DivaMoms-Get Away Weekend” Provides a Welcome Respite from … Well, You Know
Family and Stress-Free “Off the Grid” Experience Lets Moms Recharge, Renew and Revitalize with Two Day Retreat in the Poconos
Zoom … playdates … at-home schooling … socially distanced friends … oh yeah, and that thing called COVID. It’s been an … “eventful” year, 2020. And more than anyone (sorry dads!), moms need a breather.
DivaMoms, New York’s most engaged community for sensible, stylish and on-the-go moms, is calling time out for mothers, and doing it with a much-needed get-away to the Poconos for a retreat at Tyler Hill Camp during the first-ever “DivaMoms-Get Away Weekend” Friday, Sept. 25- Sunday, Sept. 27.
The picture-esque, tranquil and serene setting will provide women a chance to unwind, relax, laugh, drink and bond over a two-day unplugged experience. So, ditch delivered meals, online home-work assignments, Cuomo assessments and stay-at-home directives, moms! Meditation, yoga, hikes, fitness sessions and group gatherings await. Campfires and s’mores will top off each night. And oh yeah, don’t forget “Wine and Dye,” which needs not explanation.
We got you!
Also included are gourmet meals prepared by a top chef.
“’DivaMoms-Get Away Weekend’ is just what’s needed after a really tough year that’s not even over,” says Lyss Stern, the founder of the DivaMoms community who is still recovering from her own bout with Covid back in March. “We’ve been dealing with unimaginable circumstances this year and really need a chance to take a breath, unpack, unwind and renew. I designed this experience as a two-day mental and physical vacation for mothers who really need a beat for themselves. We’re unplugging from everything — family, news, protests, anxiety. This is going to be a stress-free experience.”
Recreating the “sleep away camp” setting is Tyler Hill Camp, set on 220 acres with two lakes, nine-hole golf course, 12 tennis courts, fitness center and indoor cycling studio.
“Tyler Hill is the ultimate setting,” Sterns says. “Two hours away from the city, it might as well be 1,000. We’re putting reality on notice: these two days our ours!” Tyler Hill’s director, Wendy Siegel, says her phone is ringing off the hook with moms who can’t wait to get in their cars, listen to THEIR music and take the scenic drive to be a part of this experience.
The experience will be observing COVID-era guidelines, with a limited number of guests, temperature checks, deeply sanitized settings and requirement of negative test results.
