Registration open for New York winter retreat

Winter 2014 Retreat: The Sexual Recovery Plan

The winter New York retreat (open to all members of the fellowship, regardless of where you are from) will be held February 21st, 22nd & 23rd. Registration is now available here.

General Information:

  • The retreat is 2 nights, 3 days – it starts with a Friday dinner/meeting and ends with Sunday lunch and a Gratitude Meeting.
  • There are recovery workshops, meetings, a traditional Saturday night creativity hour and game of Charades, plus plenty of quiet time to spend with yourself or friends as you please.
  • The Incarnation Center is a beautiful quiet retreat facility off in the woods near Ivoryton, CT. It has a petting zoo nearby with lots of cool farm animals (llamas, alpacas, etc.). There are roaring stone fireplaces during the winter and a beautiful lake just down the hill with hiking trails surrounding it. During the summer one can swim in the lake with all sorts of activities. 
  • By all reports the food is great, with all your meals provided for, including vegetarian options.
  • All persons have their own private room.  Most have shared bathrooms (recently renovated and very nice, with private stalls for showers and toilets), although a few (usually reserved for the women) have private bathrooms.  All the rooms are nice and all are assigned randomly.  Please no requests!
  • There is limited space, so send in your registration quickly. The retreat sells out fast, and a waiting list is then created.
  • For transporation information please check the registration form. Some people drive up themselves or come up in a carpool, however most people ride up as a group from Grand Central on the Metro North train (New Haven stop on the New Haven line). This train ticket is not included in your retreat cost.  It’s currently $32.50 round trip, price subject to change of course. Please see the registration form for details.
  • The retreats are always reasonably priced, subsidized by SCA NY fundraisers,  a scholarship fund, and generous donations from SCA NY members who can afford to help others.  Thank you for your contributions!
