Check in/Check out

Please go to the West Room to check in for the retreat and to obtain information for checking in to your room.

The program begins at 11am; however, room check-in does not formally begin until 4pm. Guests may leave their bags in the West Room until their rooms are ready. Check-in will be staggered so as to not interfere with the agenda. Please check-in during coffee breaks or after the talks at 5pm.

** Check out is by 9:30 am Sunday **


Our group will be housed in six different dormitories (A-F), each with single and shared occupancy rooms. The sleeping rooms are very modest and simple. All bedding, linen, and towels will be provided.

The bathrooms in each building are located in the hallway and are shared with other guests. Each guest building will also include a kitchen located in the lodging area for coffee/tea for guest use.


Carpooling to/from the retreat is available. If you have indicated on your registration form that you would like to carpool, you should have received an email from Xuan with more information on how to make carpool arrangements. If you have any questions, please contact Xuan Quach.
