mission statement

Clearwater Chrysalis is a balanced, faith-building program of Clearwater Forest. We welcome adult women from all Christian traditions. Our vision is to nourish and support the body, mind and spirit in community with other women.


The first Clearwater Chrysalis in 1984 featured speakers, exercise classes, Bible study, and workshops. Chrysalis has been held every summer since and an annual winter gathering since 1990.
