LEARN WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE A HIGH-IMPACT STORY

It's About The Story Formula

The Story Formula is Kelly's secret sauce that ensures your stories are compelling and amazing. But she doesn't stop there. you'll also learn the Story Framework - Kelly's process for crafting stories. Truly amazing stories. Stories that move your audiences and your customers. 

Through her teaching and real-time coaching, Kelly will show you how to make your stories better. And because it's not always what you say, it's often how you say it, Kelly will coach you on script and delivery. She'll show you how to pull that desired emotion out of your audience - whether it's tears of laughter and joy or tears of sorry and sadness.

It's truly an experience of a lifetime.

Find Your Story. And Then Some.

One of the most difficult things most campers initially face is the belief that they don't have enough stories. But Kelly is quick to the rescue and teaches you how to look for and find stories virtually anywhere. And then, Kelly teaches you how to tell that story in a way that will leave the right impression, and inspire your audience to take action. 

STORY CRAFTING CAMP IS...

a chance to unplug with a small group of people, for three intense days, united for one common purpose: To work with Kelly Swanson and to learn, process, write, apply, network, imagine, and master the art of the story.

COUNT ME IN!

Maybe it's time to unplug...

Fill your soul and unleash your creativity. Immerse yourself in the secluded retreat setting of Lake Logan, a retreat center nestled among the trees.  Story Camp is the gift you give yourself that will not only take your stories from great to amazing - but will teach you the formula to last a lifetime.

 

LAKE LOGAN, NORTH CAROLINA

Where Inspiration is Everywhere.

Story Camp takes place at Lake Logan Retreat Center, nestled in the woods of the Pisgah National Forest. Lake Logan is like none other. With this unique venue, whether it's on your porch of your cabin overlooking the lake, sitting in the rustic Meeting Lodge with its massive windows, gathered around the fireplace in the Dining Hall, or taking a walk in the surrounding woods, you'll find a heavy dose of inspiration. Bring plenty of paper and pens and plan to be inspired in a way that only Story Camp can.

What It's Like to Learn from Kelly

Telling your story doesn't just mean telling your story. When you work with Kelly, you'll learn The Story Formula and how it's THE single most powerful way to make an impact - to reach your audience with the message they need to hear, and to persuade them to take action. Kelly can take your story from great to AMAZING.

And the best part about it? You'll have the knowledge for every story you tell for the rest of your life!

"Best investment I have EVER made in my business."


"Before I learned the Formula I struggled to write just one story. Now I can write hundreds. And it’s easy!"


"I used Kelly's Story Formula to close more sales – and it works!"


"Now I have an easy template to craft customer testimonials that help me connect with my clients."


"I love how she helps me craft the story in my OWN authentic style."


"Learning from Kelly is like getting a Master’s Degree in Strategic Storytelling."


"This was life changing for me. I never realized I could be a good writer and storyteller."


"She helped me use story to speak the same language as my buyer. That was HUGE for me. Now they don’t just understand what I can do for them, they actually want to hear more!"


"She made me funnier!"

Frequently Asked Questions

June 11 - 13, 2020

Camp runs from Thursday, June 11 @ 6pm until Saturday, June 13 @ 2pm.

Please arrive no later than 4pm on Thursday to check in. For departures, you can leave the camp site anytime from 2:00 pm and after on Saturday. That typically means to NOT schedule a flight any earlier than 4pm ET (out of Asheville), 5pm or later from other airports.

It kicks off with Dinner on Thursday night and goes until just after lunch on Saturday.

You will receive a detailed agenda upon arrival, but we'll go late each evening - until around 9pm or later.

Camp is located at:

Lake Logan Retreat Center
25 Wormy Chestnut Lane
Canton, NC 28716
www.lakelogan.org

Link to GoogleMaps: https://g.page/lakelogan?share

The closest airport is Asheville (AVL), North Carolina - approximately 45 minutes away. From Asheville, you can either rent a car or take a taxi or Uber.

Other options include flying into Greenville/Spartanburg, NC (1 hr 45 min drive) or Knoxville, TN (2 hours+ drive).

Please print out directions, as the cell service gets fairly spotty the closer you get to the retreat center.

Camp is casual. It's often hot outside, but cool in the Main Lodge. Wear whatever is comfortable for you. 

Essentials include:
Casual wear for three days
Bathing suit - if you want to go into the lake
Tennis shoes
Flip Flops
Sunscreen
Bug spray (although there aren't many bugs that bite)

You do not need to worry about handling accommodations. That will be handled for you by the Camp Counselors.

All campers will get their own room. All rooms have twin beds. You will be assigned a room in the Retreat House (with air conditioning) or in one of the Lakeside Cabins on the Lake with a cool evening breeze.

We will have our daily morning and afternoon sessions in the Main Lodge. This building has restrooms, wireless access, and phones available if needed for emergency use.

During the Evening Sessions, we will be in the Retreat House.

Well, that's a great question! Cell service is pretty spotty in the area.

This is actually one of the things that creates great camaraderie. It's rare these days to truly unplug so we actually kind of love the fact that the cell service is not great.

You can get wireless service at all times in the Main Lodge, and on occasion you can find a signal quite randomly. Please do your best to not schedule important calls during camp time.

In case of emergency with someone back home, all accommodations have phones that will take inbound calls.

The food is not fancy, but it is delicious. Lake Logan does its best to accommodate dietary restrictions. Worst case, there is always a fresh salad bar with every lunch and dinner.

And if you need to bring your own food, there are refrigerators in the Retreat House as well as all of the cabins.

You bet there is! For all returning campers, you will get a 20% discount on your package. Please send an email to Molly Wendell ([email protected]) along with the year you attended to receive your coupon code.

Plans change. We get it. The challenge for Story Camp is that we have a limited number of seats. And if you take one, that leaves one less for someone else.

If the unforeseen happens and you must cancel your participation in camp, you may use the payments you've already made toward private coaching with Kelly.

Now don't get crazy and cancel because you like that idea! Story Camp is an amazing experience and you'll be glad you made the trip!

Results? Maybe... depends on the results you're looking for. Satisfaction? Definitely!

If you are not completely satisfied with your camp experience, please let Kelly Swanson know within 2 weeks upon completion of camp and you will get your money back. In full.

Do you have questions or need more information, just reach out. Give us a call at 1-800-303-1049 or contact Molly Wendell at [email protected], one of our camp counselors.
