Now in it’s 32nd year as one of the nation’s longest-running gay men’s events the Rowe Labor Day Retreat continues to harness the power of brotherhood and transformation for gay ,bisexual, and questioning men.
We are experienced in creating a weekend event that brings men together in unique and connective ways. The retreat continues to provide a welcoming, nourishing and fulfilling experience for gay men and it opens the door to a more connected view of the gay community and the world.
Rowe Labor Day weekend offers group activities, lectures, togetherness, self- acceptance, renewal, reflection, and creativity, as well as plain love and laughter. We come together with caring and kindness. The retreat’s goal is to create a weekend of surprise, sharing, and self- nurturing, while building a long-lasting community between men.
Workshops led by gifted teachers explore relationships and dating, meditation, spirituality, and much more. There is ritual, dancing, singing, body-work, and a renowned group talent show. There are large and small group activities, yet plenty of opportunities for free time or getting to know others.
Come experience the passing of summer into autumn with us. Many lasting friends and long-term partners trace their initial meeting to Rowe. This nourishing experience offers a bridge to a more connected view of the gay community— and of the world—and has done so for the past 32 years! Come see why!
