WRW – FAQs

What is the purpose of the Women’s Recovery Workshop?

The purpose of the Women’s Recovery Workshop is to offer an opportunity for women in any 12-step program to gather and share their recovery with each other, learn more about the steps and how to apply the principles in their daily lives. This is not a workshop led by mental health professionals. All of our workshop leaders and speakers are simply members of a 12 step program sharing experience, strength and hope.

What is the agenda?

Registration opens Friday afternoon at 4:00PM.
We have 4 meetings for all:
Friday PM – Learning to rely on Women
Saturday AM – 4-Women Panel on the 12-Steps
Saturday PM – A Story of Recovery
Sunday AM – Spirituality

Saturday
We have optional workshops Saturday morning after the 12-Step Panel and Saturday afternoon after lunch on topics such as: Sponsorship, The Principles, Al-Anon, etc…

There is a beautiful lake and great fishing. (GA fishing licensee IS required)

We have a bonfire on Friday night and Saturday night is open for Club Sober dance/karoke, a movie, a drum circle or for meeting with your sponsor. The last meeting Sunday morning ends at around noon.

What is the WRW Scholarship Fund?

A fund to assist  women who are unable to pay the full registration fee.  We provide a lifetime maximum of two (2) scholarships per woman. Each workshop has a limit as to the number of scholarships available.  We do have other resources we can help you find if the scholarships are taken.  Contact us on the Contact tab for ideas from our scholarship representative.

How do I apply for a WRW Scholarship?

It is simple! Click here to be taken to the application page. Fill it out and click submit. We will contact you within 48-72 hours. DO NOT have a friend or your sponsor complete the application for you for you.  You MUST do it yourself. 

Attendance at our workshop MUST be voluntary.

The scholarship procedure is as follows.

  1. Submit on the Jer-Don Scholarship or click this link

What does the registration fee cover?

The registration fee covers lodging and (5) cafeteria style meals. Coffee, tea, and some snacks are also provided free of charge. If you have special dietary needs you must provide these items yourself.

Will I get a confirmation?

To cut down on cost we do not mail confirmations. If you submit an email address you will receive an email confirmation within a week of receipt of your payment. Do not register until you can pay.  Then check to make sure your card was actually billed and your registration went through. Space is not held just for registering. You must make a payment to reserve a space.

If you are mailing in a registration form you can contact Becky W. via email at rebewebb@nullcomcast.net to confirm receipt of registration form and payment.  Please give at least 10 days after you mail the registration form to email Becky.

What happens if I miss the registration deadline?

When the registration deadline is reached, you can go online and register to be placed on a waiting list. You must pay in full when you register to be considered as a replacement. It will be held for you until the workshop date. When there is a cancellation the first person on the list is notified by phone of the available opening. If no opening becomes available you can decide to have your money returned or applied to the October 11-13, 2019 workshop.  Bottom bunks go fast.  We cannot open another cabin just to accommodate bottom bunks so please register today and reserve your space by paying half down now.

What do I need to bring?

Casual clothes, sheets for a twin bed, pillow, blanket, bath towels and a (optional) flashlight. Snacks and drinks you prefer.

Oh yeah remember: courage & willingness!

Tell me about the lodging?

Many of your cell phones will not work at Rock Eagle.  We do have wifi and you can set your phone to Wifi calling to make calls. There is also a TV and DVD player in each cabin.  Feel free to bring dvds to share in your cabin. Please be aware of those sleeping if shown at night.

Your cabin has 6 rooms and will accommodate 22 people. Each room has it’s own private bath. There are 4 women to a room except the front room which only has space for 2 people. This room is reserved for special needs cases. We do have a cabin with a handicap ramp, however it does go slightly uphill. There are a few steps to get into that cabin. Keep this in mind for people with disabilities.  If you have further questions about the handicap facilities please use the contact link for help.

Our cabins are on  the lake and sitting on your front porch provides a beautiful serene view. Rock Eagle is a great place to do 5th steps, private time with your sponsor or sponsees. You won’t find a better retreat location.
