This is a draft schedule subject to change


Our goal with the women's retreat has always been to find a homey place that we can be together. (As opposed to renting hotel rooms). Similar to previous years, we have booked several large neighboring houses. This means we have the space to ourselves with plenty of opportunity for gathering and fellowship. However, that also means that each bedroom is a little different. So, as always, we appreciate your flexibility and grace with room assignments. 

Prices are based on the number of people to a room. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. When you register, you can let us know whether you have a preferred roommate. We will always try to accommodate everyone's wishes, but again- due to the unique nature of the houses- we do the final assignments based on what works best for the whole group.

Single Room** (1 person in 1 room): $300

Double Room* (2 people in 1 room, 1 bed): $260

Shared Room* (3+ people in 1 room, shared beds or bunks): $230

*Shared beds will either be queen or king sized

**As of 10/11/17, all Single Rooms have been booked

We have a limited number of each type of room.

Registration opens July 9th for EPC members and attenders and October 23rd for friends of members. 

Once you register and pay the $30 deposit, you will be sent the room list to sign up. 



$30 Deposit: Due at Registration

50% payment: Due by October 22

Remaining balance: January 28

If you miss the deadlines, you will drop to the waiting list. 

All payments must be completed in full by the January 28th deadline.

We encourage you to set up recurring payments online (to the women's retreat fund) in order to pay your registration over time


The fee covers your room cost, dinner on Thursday, breakfast and dinner on Friday, and breakfast on Saturday. EPC does subsidize the cost of the retreat so that we can keep prices as low as possible. We'd love to help as many women as possible attend the retreat, and thus, have established a small scholarship fund. Unfortunately, due to the limited size of this fund we can't promise the availability of scholarships to all who apply nor can we offer full scholarships. Please indicate when you register whether you are in need of scholarship assistance. A scholarship committee will be in touch with you to discuss your scholarship need.

food & transportation


Dinner is provided on Thursday, breakfast and dinner on Friday, and breakfast on Saturday. EPC does subsidize the cost of the retreat so that we can keep prices as low as possible. While we desire to accommodate all dietary restrictions, this can be a difficult task with 60 people in attendance. Please show us grace in the matter of food preferences and allergies. We will carefully mark all the items, so that you will know what you can and cannot eat. You will be asked to list any allergies or dietary restrictions at registration. Please consider whether you need to bring meal supplements in cases of strict allergies or restrictions.


The drive to Blue Mountain Beach is about 5 hours. The carpool will leave no later than noon on Thursday.

Carpooling is a wonderful way to save on travel costs as well as expand our social circles and deepen our relationships. In order to make a carpool work we need drivers! So, please consider whether you can be a driver. The more drivers who sign up, the more carpool spots we have available to offer those interested on a first come first serve basis. You will be asked your carpooling preferences when you register.

For any carpooling or transportation questions, please email Thank you!
