Plan Your Retreat

8 Simple Steps to Plan Your Next Retreat

1. When is your retreat?

Check our availability to see what dates we have open for you to stay at Camp Cedar Glen. [We do our best to keep our online calendar updated, but if you are set on a certain weekend make sure to call us as well.]

2. How many people are you expecting on your retreat?

10-22: Curly Wells Cabin
21-36: Griffin Lodge
49-64: Assembly Village
45-66: Wyatt Village

Feel free to mix and match! For example, if you have a 90 person group you can use Griffen Lodge and Assembly Village OR Griffen Lodge and Wyatt Village. Lowest rates prevail.

 3. How many nights would you like to stay?

Once you choose your cabins, consider how many nights your group would like to stay. Camp Cedar Glen charges per person per night. Your group arrives after 4pm on your first night (dinner included!) and leaves before 11am on your last day (breakfast included!). All days in between includes 3 meals (breakfast 8am, lunch 12pm, dinner 5:30pm). Please let us right away know if you need any accommodations to our schedule.

4. What FREE programs would you like on your retreat?

Every group that stays two or more nights is offered three hours of free program. This is offered between 1 and 4pm and can be split between our pool, our climbing tower and archery range. You may choose one activity for the first 1.5 hours and another for the second 1.5 hours. If you would like more than three hours or all three programs (if you can’t just pick two!), that can be easily arranged for a fee.

5. Team Building

Think about if your group would like to do any team building activities on your retreat. We offer three different programs. All three options are planned and led by our trained staff.

  • Team building and low ropes. $15 per person. 3 hours.

  • High ropes course. $40 per person. 4 hours.

  • Team building and high ropes. $60 per person. 8 hours.

*Please note that there is a 8 person minimum for high ropes and all participants must be 12 years or older.

6. What other activities would you like to plan?

Camp Cedar Glen also offer nature hikes! You can either explore one of our trails as a group or schedule a specific educational hike. We also have a basketball court, volleyball net, a backstop for kickball/baseball, and a playground for young children. Please let us know if you anticipate using any of these program spaces or if you need any equipment.

7. Let us know what else you need.

Once you have your retreat planned make sure you let us know any equipment you may need. We offer tables, chairs, AV equipment, etc. We are able to set up meeting spaces and AV equipment. Let us know what you are planning so that we can help you set up and ensure a smooth retreat.
