Sacramento Regional Retreat

The retreat has officially been canceled due to the Coronavirus situation.  3/16/20

Day Retreat

  • Registration will close on April 30.

  • Friday ($50) includes evening program and dinner.

  • Saturday ($65) includes all day program, lunch, and dinner.

  • Sunday ($50) includes morning and afternoon programs and lunch.

  • The Day option does not include onsite overnight accommodations. Please refer to the Alternate Lodging List.

Weekend Retreat

  • Registration will close on April 19.

  • Rates ($250 single, $220 double) include lodging and 6 meals per person, from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon – 2 nights.

  • Early registration is encouraged.

  • Regarding single room requests, technically there are no single rooms.  There are a total of 36 rooms with shared bathrooms in three lodges. Although each room can accommodate at least two persons, we assign no more than two to a room.  “Single room” availability depends on the number of weekend registrations, which is not known until registration closes in late April. For this reason, single room requests are wait-listed on a first-come-first-serve basis. The earlier you register the more likely you are to get a single room.

  • The registrar will notify those who request single rooms of their status approximately two weeks prior to the retreat. If there are not enough single spaces to go around you will be assigned a roommate of the same sex and be refunded the difference between a single and double room. If you request a single room and have not received notification by May 3 please contact Betty Hillman at or 916-501-2284.

  • Alternatively, those who would rather not share a room can register for one or more days and stay overnight in one of the hotels in the Auburn area .

Register Online and Pay With Credit Card

  • As these are credit card payments everyone, both day and weekend retreatants, must pay in full when they register. Weekenders can still make a deposit by using the paper registration option.

  • Since scholarship applicants must attach their scholarship application to their registration form, they will not be able to register online.

  • Those who wish to make a donation to help with retreat costs and scholarships will be able to do so.

  • Online registration will be available at the Center on Sundays after the readings service during March and April.
