- Experience the Magic that is The Rowe Center -

Summer Youth Camps, Summer Adult Community Retreats & Year-Round Private Group Retreats 

Each summer we provide exciting camps for young people, and have been doing so since 1924. Youth at Rowe are honored and empowered, learning to balance individual freedom with responsibility to the community in a fun, relaxed, creative environment. For the past three decades we've also been offering summer retreats for adults that enrich the lives of participants, welcoming old friends and newcomers alike for sharing, play, healing, and transformation. Select the camp that's perfect for your child, or the community retreat that's right for you, and please join us!

You also can rent spaces to create your own Private Group Retreat. Find out about it here, and here.

Conferences & Personal Retreats

(Fall, Winter, & Spring)

The Rowe Center is a marvelous place to learn and grow. We offer an array of conferences featuring outstanding teachers in a small, intimate forum, focusing on the arts, spirituality, political activism, nature, and personal growth.  Surrounded by mountain forests, lakes, brooks, and wild orchards and meadows, Rowe also offers a beautiful setting for personal retreats. Whether you're returning after many sojourns here, or joining one of our conferences for the first time: Welcome home to Rowe.

We're offering two exceptional programs, one in Spiritual Guidance and another in Permaculture. The Spiritual Guidance program can train you in offering mentoring and support to people in their spiritual journeys. The Earth Activist Training Camp can prepare you to meet human needs while regenerating the land, and provides the basis for a Permaculture Design Certificate.  Each program features a superb faculty and curriculum.
