About this trip

Fat Camp is BACK! Our Fat Positive retreat will be held again in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Campers will be able to participate in all the activities of summer camp while enjoying a retreat-like getaway in a judgment-free space. From pool parties and arts & crafts to Happy Hour and themed parties, Fat Camp is the destination you need to add to your Wander List!  


This isn't your run-of-the-mill Fat Camp; diet talk is off the table. Instead, we'll be having fun in the summer sun and talking about travel. Not counting calories or wasting time worrying about our weight. In fact, we'll be doing the exact opposite! Eating delicious meals daily, reliving our childhood camp memories, and making new friends. All in a Fat Positive environment with some of your favorite Body Positive Advocates.

Hi! My name is Annette and I am a fashion stylist and lifestyle blogger. I've visited 18 countries in the last two years, so it's safe to say I've been bitten by the travel bug. I recently planned two weeks in Thailand and loved the country so much I wanted to move there!

This was an amazing trip that I will never forget! Annette takes such care in planning all aspects of her trips. Our driver was kind and helpful, breakfast was delicious, the scheduled daily plans were awesome, and I enjoyed every aspect of it. This was the first time I went on a trip that I didn’t plan myself, and tbh I had some apprehension about that beforehand. However, this trip was so much better than if I had planned it myself! Annette’s insider knowledge and extensive research is really what helps make these trips so amazing. Can’t wait for the next one!
Had a really great time on the Bali Body Love trip!!! I loved the experience- the accommodation was fantastic, our driver was helpful and great. Met some awesome ladies on the trip including the host Annette. I feel like the size of our trip helped us to easily establish a connective vibe. We did at least one awesome thing each day and when we were tired and ready to call it a night we were all pretty in sync which doesn’t always happen in leather groups. I have memories to last a lifetime. Bali was fantastic, the local people generally friendly and kind. As a fat girl traveling I was apprehensive about traveling and being seen as someone to stare and gawk at because I’m a person of size, person of color, my hair, etc etc. and the only time I felt like it was an issue was from tourists not locals. Having 3 fierce women having my back and knowing I had theirs was uplifting. It was a step out on faith and it paid off in full. Thank you for the amazing experience I will never forget. 💜

Coming into Camp, I didn't really know what to expect as I don't really like to talk about my feelings and am new to the whole body positivity world. I left Camp in love with all these wonderful ladies. I enjoyed hearing about the shared experiences and just being in a safe and loving place for the weekend. Sure, there were a lot of "influencers" there, but that wasn't the main focus of the weekend. I mostly spent time making friends, learning a dance to Lizzo from an amazing plus size dance group, sharing secrets and laughs around the camp fire. I will defintely be signing up again.
I left early due to not feeling the vibe of the event. It felt less like an opportunity to bond with women who've experienced the struggle that comes with being fat and more like just another photo op for plus size IG influencers and those who inspire to be one. Not to say that's a bad thing, but not what I was looking for. Certain parts were great (food was bomb and the opportunity to discuss certain issues as a group were what I was actually there for). And I applaud the creator for the effort put in to the creation of this event. Was just looking for something different that what I got.
Such a great time! Annette is a wonderful organizer and it was so nice to experience this trip!
