The fine print:
*You must catch the 3:07 Metro-North train from Grand Central to New Haven if you want to catch the complimentary coach to Incarnation Center. We cannot guarantee that anyone will be able to pick you up at another time at the train station. A taxi to Ivoryton will be expensive. Please plan accordingly. Train schedules are subject to change; we will send you an e-mail reminder the week of the retreat with current departure times.
**Scholarship funds are limited. Scholarships up to $100.00 will be given out based on availability of funds, the order in which requests are received and how recently applicant has received a retreat scholarship. Donations to the scholarship fund are gratefully welcomed.
***Important Cancellation policy: Full payment for the retreat is due August 15. If you must cancel (we hope you won’t!), if you notify us by September 1 you will get 100% of your money back. If you notify us by September 5, you get 50% back. After that, no refunds are possible. However, you may sell your spot to another program member.
