Colleen Cannon founded Women's Quest after a highly successful career as a professional triathlete. In her racing days, she was World Champion in 1984, and National Champion in 1988 and 1990. She also was a multiple U.S. National team member. Her passions, besides chocolate and being in nature, are liberating and empowering women through movement and balance, and targeting their true "hearts' desire." Colleen continues to evolve adventures for Women's Quest, delighting in ways to enchant women with the experiences that coax happiness grown from joyful physical experiences.

Everything was orderly and gave opportunities for different levels of activity or no activity at all!
Loved the positive energy, the spirit of the trip was really lovely.
I can't believe the athletic abilities of all the staff!! Inspiring...

Words can not do justice to how Women's Quest has changed my life. The experience gave me motivation and encouragement for me to find what my heart's desire was. Through the experiences and the people I met there, I was able to look inward and tap into my own courage, my own authenticity, and begin to slowly make changes to lead my best life. It's a continuous process, but one that remains grounded in my retreats with Colleen and company.

I have been to 5 maybe 6 Women Quest's camps (all in CO). I was at the very first "retreat" and was hooked! The inspiration you receive, the friends that you make, the courage and confidence within you that find - priceless! Colleen, Jacqueline and staff have been some of the most influential figures in my life. The experiences (physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual) that I have had at every camp have moulded me into who I am today. I am working on getting to another camp soon! I love Women's Quest!

What a wonderful way to celebrate turning 50! Thanks so much to Colleen, Jacqueline and Cynthia for an amazing week in Vermont. The setting was beautiful, the activities rewarding and the conversation rejuvenating. Additionally, every other participant was a pleasure to share this experience with. I feel well prepared and excited about many, many healthy and happy years to come.

I've just returned from a great trip with WQ to Vermont and I would definitely do this trip again! In fact, I've done trips with WQ to Hawaii and Costa Rica and they were all wonderful. The women are so fun and diverse and the trips have varied from relaxing (Hawaii) to challenging (surfing in CR and mountain biking and hiking in VT.) All activities are optional, so you can push yourself as hard as you'd like or take a slower road and still enjoy the ride both physically and mentally. The accommodations and food have been top-notch at each location, and the staff, led by Colleen Cannon are warm, welcoming and encouraging. WQ trips are perfect for solo travelers as well as for those traveling with friends.

I have been on several women's quest trips..it is always the highlight of my year. Filled with adventures with incredible women. With busy schedules, it is hard to coordinate travel with friends and family, so a trip for just me always works, and from the first 15 minutes, you feel as if you have known these gals, and build forever friends. The adventures are geared to different levels, as a beginner in some activities, I learn proper techniques and practices - as an intermediate or advanced, able to have fun and be challenged. I think they have the most inspiring staff, and great taste with accommodations and food. I guess the only negative comment would be that although they recommend taking some down time, Its hard, I never want to miss any of the fun! I always return feeling very fulfilled, happy and ready to tackle life with a new perspective.
