Exploring Devil’s Lake
Exploring Devil’s Lake and expanding our mindfulness and team working skills with the ladies of Spa Serenity. Every spring the ladies of Spa Serenity closed the doors of Spa Serenity for a day for personal and professional growth. On a cool day in mid May we locked up the spa to make the trek to one of everyone’s favorite spots, Devil’s Lake State Park. Our plan was to Camp in Quartzite Campground with some cool digs from our friends at Camp Yard, Sunrise Yoga on the Beach, team paddle boat races followed by a picnic lunch and a hike, but mother natures had other things in store for us and we made the best of our day!
Ladies Night at Willowood
The Ladies of Spa Serenity have always talked about a all staff campout, a real girl scout night! When we were planning the 2019 Spa Serenity Staff outing we decided that this was the year we would camp at Devil’s Lake Sate Park, but we didn’t want just any camping! We were going to go glamping, Spa Girl Style! We called our friends from Camp Yard ( they hooked us up for the 2018 Fall Baraboo Night Market )in Madison to hook us up with a unique experience. Unfortunately Mother Nature had something else up her sleeve, with the forecast of 40 degrees and rain we had to jump to plan “B”.
Our New Friends at Willowood Inn ( Just outside Devil’s Lake North Shore entrance) were happy to host our overnight retreat ( Click Here for a Full Blog on Willowood InnClick Here for a Full Blog on Willowood Inn). The rooms were clean and comfortable, with each room having a unique theme. We enjoyed all of the adventure of camping and the comforts or Grandma’s House. We built a campfire, roasted marshmallows, pillow fights and group games, it was a wonderful evening.
Yoga on North Shore
We wanted to start our day out with team yoga to connect to our spiritual side. Spa Serenity is lucky enough to have Julia a yoga instructor on staff, Julia led the entire Spa Serenity Team through a basis yoga session on the North Shore of Devil’s Lake on this chilly and peaceful morning.
Team Building Canoe Races a Devil’s Lake State Park
The Staff outing planners had organized for a paddle boat race on the North Shore of Devil’s Lake, however the high water has prevented the Devil’s Lake Staff from installing the piers and getting the paddle boats in the water yet. Once again the ever flexible ladies of Spa Serenity changed gears and suited up for a themed canoe race! The ladies gathered in to their teams and dressed in their festive best and they were OFF! First headed to the shore of west bluff to collect and inflatable clown and then to Dog Beach for fun noodles and finally back to the North Shore Chalet to the finish line.
First Across the Finish Line… Becky and Deanna!
After the wild Spa Serenity Staff Canoe Races everyone hearts were pounding and we were hungry! Our plan was to picnic in the sun and head out for a staff hike, however once again that Mother Nature was not so cooperative. With a chill in the air and clouds over head we decided to skip the picnic and head in to town to Baraboo Burger Company for some warm eats.
