Teen Retreats

Get away. Turn off your phone. Step back into yourself.

Our multi-day residential retreats teach you awareness and concentration practices that lead to beneficial outcomes validated by science. Through guided mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and movement, you will learn how to calm your mind, direct and sustain attention, explore emotions and thoughts, cultivate compassion, and communicate more authentically with your peers and others.

The retreat daily schedule includes ample free time to connect with other participants and take part in dynamic workshops such as creative arts and dance/movement, sports, nature awareness, creative writing, and more! Many teens who are tentative at first leave saying they had one of the best experiences of their lives.

We offer a retreat experience of the highest quality. Our retreat teachers and staff are senior experts in their fields, drawing on decades of experience. The teen to staff ratio on every retreat is 2 or 3 to 1, ensuring that your teen receives exceptional support and mentoring. The skills and experiences that teens gain on retreat are unparalleled and go on to support them throughout the rest of their lives. Our testimonials from parents and teens speak for themselves.

“After a couple of days my whole outlook on life was changed. It was an awesome experience. I would encourage any teen to come here.” – Josh, age 15
