Cedar Cross provides welcoming space for small groups to work, share, rest, and play together. The intimate, home-like setting offers a warm, peaceful, non-institutional environment that fosters comfort and relaxation. Church groups, nonprofit boards, and work teams all may benefit from coming away from the usual pressure of schedules and phone calls.

We are open to many ways of working with groups using the facilities at Cedar Cross. Groups may choose to come for a few hours, a day, overnight, or for a full weekend. You may bring your own leaders, seek consultation from our experienced retreat center directors, ask for help with specific components such as an art experience or a discernment process, or request that we structure and lead the entire retreat for you. Additional suggestions for enhancing a group retreat are available.
Similarly, you may request catering for some or all of your group meals, or, for a small charge, you may request to use our kitchen to prepare or serve your own meals. Meals provided by Cedar Cross caterers are simple and nourishing. We can accommodate gluten-free diets with prior notice. If you have other specific needs and preferences, please inquire before registering.
Groups may pre-arrange a creative experience, using art materials in the lodge or in the Art Studio, as a group or as individuals. Margaret Hilpert is highly skilled and experienced in facilitating art activities to open up creative thinking or deepen reflection. Even people who have no art experience, or who feel that they are "not creative," may be assisted to use art materials in ways that can be surprising in their richness and meaning.
