The Resident Leadership Retreat is a partnership between Healthy Richmond, its associated community agencies and YES Nature to Neighborhoods. The retreat is designed to create strong connections between parents, caregivers, family, and community members through story, reflection, and teambuilding. Emerging resident leaders and their families are invited to attend. We hope you will join us!

Empowerment workshops: storytelling, power building, and gaining skills and tools to bring positive change to Richmond schools and neighborhoods through community initiatives in Richmond.
Accommodations: Families will sleep in clean, heated cabins accommodating up to 10-12 people. Some families share cabins with other families, depending on camp capacity.
