Nicknamed "Nail Camp" by past Nail Techs attending, this Retreat was the first of it's kind and still the only one in the country to span 4 days and be all inclusive! That means once you are there you don't have to worry about finding a hotel or how expensive the resturant will be that night. You don't need a car to get around because we stay at the facility the full 4 days! Camp Burton is on an island a ferry ride from Seattle is where we have called home for the past 6 Retreats. It is a fabulous waterfront, rustic location with amazing cooks and deer roaming the fields. Its a peaceful location away from the busy city. This isn't the mariott but if you love cabins and the outdoors its perfect. read more

Dying to come to the Retreat but you need to spread out your payments? Take advantage of Paypal's Bill me Later program giving you up to 6 months to pay.
We are not in charge of the Paypal credit system. If you are having problems being able to use Paypal's Bill Me Later Option, contact Paypal Customer Service.

We do not take payments, with so many attendees, chasing after people to make their payments was a full time job so we are happy that many are able to use this Paypal option!
