Preparing for an Adventure

The Basics About the Trip


This Heartwork Adventure will take place in the heart of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas near Buffalo National River. The trip will begin on Thursday afternoon, September 22nd and end on Monday morning, September 26th. You can expect to hear from both seasoned and fresh voices speaking to the core issues of every woman’s life, taking a whole-body, wholehearted approach to each topic. If you long to become the woman God created you to be, or if you’re just sure there’s more to this thing called Life but haven’t a clue where to begin, this trip is for you. Come and join us as we bask in the beauty of the Ozarks on our day hikes, lean into the heart of Jesus with a mug of coffee in moments of quiet, experience intimate times of worship around the campfire, and devour delicious food to fuel our bodies and feed our souls. Over the course of this incredible weekend, we’ll have awesome conversations, definitely share some laughs, and maybe even shed a few tears as we link arms and join hearts in this journey of the mind, body, and soul called Heartwork.

  • Check-in starts at 3:00pm on Thursday, September 22nd and, for those who would like to stay as late as possible, check-out is no later than 11:00am on Monday, September 26th.
  • The average high in the Ozark Mountains during the end of October is in the upper 60's Fahrenheit (great for hiking), with an average low in the mid-upper 40's Fahrenheit (great for campfires). October in the Ozarks will bring the occasional rain shower. Please utilize this information to pack weather-appropriate clothing and bedding. You will need WARM clothes and bedding for the evenings!
  • We will be eating our supper together on Sunday evening at the Low Gap Cafe (it's much more than a cafe) in Jasper, AR. The cost of this meal is NOT covered in the registration costs. Estimated cost of this meal is $25 - $40.
  • JB's Campground is a privately held campground. The cost of the campground IS COVERED in your registration.
  • Each registrant/group attending is responsible for their own transportation to and from our JB's Campground meeting place. For those interested in flying to our Adventure, Springfield-Branson National Airport in Springfield, MO is the closest viable airport.
  • After your arrival, there will be brief times of traveling to get to some of our Adventure locations. We will need registrants to volunteer to drive their vehicles in a manner that is best conducive to carpooling.

Physical Recommendations


This is VERY important. The Ozark Mountain Adventure features two days of moderate to strenuous hiking. Each of our day hikes feature in excess of 1100ft of elevation gain. While Heartwork always pledges to maintain a safe trailside environment, we also acknowledge that keeping a steady hiking pace is most advantageous for the group as a whole. Because of this we ask that all participants undergo the necessary training prior to the Adventure.

While our goal is not to exclude women from participating in our Adventures, for the sake of group dynamics and the respect of your fellow Adventurers, we strongly encourage each participant to honestly evaluate their level of physical fitness prior to registering.

Although we are not licensed medical professionals, we reserve the right to ask you not to participate if we feel that your health is at risk.
