Before Your Retreat — Information, Timeline & Resources

8 Weeks Before Your Retreat

Read your Prep Pack thoroughly. 

This webpage is a great overview of the steps you need to take to prepare for your retreat, but your Prep Pack is chock-full of need-to-know information and details beyond what is listed here.

 

Explore funding options.

We understand the challenges of working within your school budget. If you’re coming up short of funds for your retreat, check out these helpful funding resources and ideas.

 

Book a facility.

Though we strongly recommend you select an off-campus location for your retreat, doing so is optional. Retreats at a neutral location are more effective and free from distractions. Schools typically reserve a space at a nearby community center, religious center, banquet center, hotel conference room or similar type of facility.
