New York opens registration for winter retreat

SCA New York invites you to register for the winter retreat and join us in Ivoryton, CT on Friday February 17th through Sunday, February 19th. View and print a PDF of the retreat registration form.

Winter SCA New York Retreat

A retreat creates a special period of time for connection, community, silence, rest, simplicity and contemplation. It can be both a “time out” from life’s daily stresses as well as an opportunity to deepen one’s experience of self and our connection to our program. 

Workshops, meetings, creativity, fellowship, food and snacks, nature walks, games, and more are available. This is a closed event for members of SCA only.  Advance registration is required, and the retreat fills up quickly as there is limited space.

The focus of the workshops during this retreat will be on the Tools of Recovery: Socializing & Dating, Prayer and Meditation & Writing, and The 12 Steps & Literature.

Meals: Three meals are provided each day (with a salad bar and vegetarian options at every meal) and coffee, tea, and snacks. Feel free to bring any special dietary items and your own snacks. A refrigerator and freezer are available for our use.

Rooms: Everyone has their own private room with a single bed. Most have shared bathrooms (recently renovated and very nice, with private rooms for showers and toilets), although a few (usually reserved for the women) have private bathrooms.  All rooms are assigned randomly. Please no requests!

How to get there: Most people travel as a group on Metro North from Grand Central Station to New Haven where a bus meets the group and drives on to the Incarnation Center (full details are provided on the registration form). You may drive up or carpool if you prefer.

Cost: The retreats are reasonably priced at $225 and are subsidized by SCA New York fundraisers, and a scholarship fund supported by your generous donations.
