Participant Disclaimer

We care about you and want to make sure this retreat is perfect for you in many ways.

Our retreats may be a challenging experience for some participants that have difficulty ambulating. There is a lot of walking involved at most of the facilities we contract with.  Strength, stamina, walking up and down stairs, and walking to designated event activity areas are part of your retreat. We would like for you to be aware of this physical nature so that if you have medical conditions that make it difficult for you to walk fair distances you are aware.

Special Requests

We work hard to make your retreat a success. However, it is not always possible to meet the needs of every individual. If you have particular items or foods that you may need during your day of retreat, we highly recommend that you plan to have these with you.
