The Cabins 2020 June session is located on a private camp in walking distance from Tobey Pond and the hiking trails of the Great Mountain Forest in scenic Norfolk, Connecticut. Kayaks and canoes will be at the participants' disposition, and the swimming is fantastic. Please email us if you have mobility concerns and we will talk you through the access to the different accommodations. There is parking on site.


You can download the summer schedule for an idea of how time is structured during the retreat. Once the group arrives and settles in, a “lights out” time that respects everyone’s various sleep and socialization needs will be decided on. (Lights won't need to go off by then, just voices.)

The Cabins camp is divided up in the following way:

Main House: 2 private bedrooms, communal kitchen, screened porch, dining room, living room with fireplace, 1 1/2 bathrooms, washing machine. Fire pit off of the living room.

Studio 1: One room cabin with 1/2 bath, queen bed

Studio 2: Circular stone cabin with fireplace, 1/2 bath and queen bed

The Flippery: Separate house containing a main room with 3 twin beds, and a separate room with a bunk bed. 1/2 bath in between the two rooms.

Room rates are as follows for the 4-day June retreat and include tuition*:

Private queen in main house: $450

Private twin in main house: $400

Private Studio 1: $525

Private Studio 2: $525

The Flippery**: $350

Scholarship recipients: no charge (except for room occupancy tax)***

Applying as a couple or two-person team? A private room or cabin must be selected and an additional $200 will be added to cover the second person’s room and board. To keep the group dynamics comfortable for everyone, only one couple or partnership will be accepted per session.


*Room rates include 3 group dinners and 2 lunches. Additionally, the kitchen in the main house will be stocked with breakfast basics and essentials such as coffee, tea, bread, granola, eggs, condiments, milk, juice, beer and wine. It will be up to the participants to replenish stocks as the weekend progresses. Everyone is more than welcome to bring food, snacks, and cooking ingredients from home to share. All participants must sign liability waivers before they arrive. 

**Please note: scholarship recipients will be housed in The Flippery. Visit the apply page for more information about scholarships.

*** Due to new tax laws in Connecticut, each applicant will be charged $5 a day to cover the room occupancy tax, including scholarship recipients.


Payment is due in full one week after your acceptance in order to hold your spot by check, Venmo, or PayPal.
