Retreat accommodations

We will stay at the new Greek Orthodox St. Iakovos Retreat Center. Linens are not provided so all participants will need to bring blankets/sleeping bags.

Things to bring:

  • Pillow
  • Blanket/Sheets/Sleeping bag
  • Something warm to sleep in
  • Change of clothes for Saturday
  • Boots, winter outerwear (for a hike in the woods)
  • Toiletries (there are only two showers available, so it will be difficult for more than a couple of us to use them.)
