Weekend in the Woods
March 27 – 29, 2020
RELAX, BE INSPIRED, SOCIALIZE, CREATE… and yes, we’ll SCRAPBOOK too!
Get ready for a Crop Girls Getaway ‘Weekend in the Woods‘ at Oakwood Resort! YES! We’ll be cropping at the beautiful Oakwood Resort, nestled in the tree-lined property on the shores of Lake Huron! Just a 60-minute drive from London, this resort offers a full-service spa, beautifully landscaped grounds, private beach access, games room, fire pit, dining room & pub, indoor saltwater pool, sauna, and hot tub! Perfect for our Crop Girls weekend scrapbooking getaway!
We will be cropping in the beautiful Terrace Room offering cathedral style ceilings, 6 large bay windows with stunning views overlooking the golf course to the east and the tree-lined property to the west, and extra lighting added, you’ll have the perfect inspiration and lighting to complete your album pages. PLUS, you’ll get your very own 8-foot cropping table, all to yourself! The stone fireplace and its own sun deck (weather permitting) overlooking the 10th fairway will offer amazing photo ops! The Terrace Room is on the main floor, so no stairs and easy access to move in your cropping supplies. Pop on over to Dave’s Bar & Grill for dinner Friday (on your own click here for menu) or take a drive into Grand Bend to experience local establishments. All meals on Saturday and Sunday will be served in the quiet, relaxing ambiance of the Oak Dining Room, just a few steps from our cropping room.
The Terrace Room has sold out, we have now opened the lower level for cropping too! The Huron Room is Oakwood Resort’s largest meeting room and includes three bay windows and two patio doors with a private deck overlooking the 10th fairway, and a stone fireplace. There are no lifts or elevators. You will be going up and down the stairs to participate in different activities throughout the event, to come for meals & announcements, use the on-site tools, and to get to your rooms. The resort will have the staff to help you with your bags as well as a loading door you can drive up to on the lower level. I will also bring in a helper for the lower level to help you with anything you need during the event. If you have mobility issues and can’t participate on the lower level, please let me know in the comment section below, I may have some volunteers who are cropping on the upper level who will switch with you. (I will try to accommodate as best I can!)
Sundown – Did you know Grand Bend has one of the Top 10 Sunsets in all of Ontario? So, let’s hope for clear evenings to bundle up and make the short walk to the beach to take it in – bring your camera, of course!

Event Theme – You know we LOVE a theme! This year, it’s all about relaxing and getting away! Just like on vacation, you want to be comfortable, you want to relax and you want to have fun. So, arrive ready to relax for our ‘Weekend in the Woods!‘ We’ll crop in our comfy cropping wear, resort wear, winter pajamas or loungewear all weekend long. Saturday night, it’s time to flashback to the 1920s and just like dinnertime on vacation, let’s dress up for dinner! Simply add feathers or pearls to your cropping attire or get all decked out in your flapper dress (you know you always wanted one!) for a fun photo op and to enjoy our dinner together – it’s sure to be a ‘roaring‘ good time!
