Welcome to The Rowe Center
The Rowe Center is an unusual and magical place. Nestled in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains and surrounded by wooded hiking trails, lakes, and trickling streams, the wonder of nature is everywhere.
Our programs are designed to support people on their journey of personal evolution. We offer spiritual nurturance, transformation, community, and lots of fun. At Rowe you’ll find the spirit of acceptance, creativity, respect, and love.
What better way to relax, unwind and take care of you!
Rowe is more than just weekend conferences. Rowe is also a space for personal retreats and group gatherings. Take advantage of our housing, from private rooms to cabin bunkhouses; delicious, healthy food; large spaces to gather inside or out; and the quiet solitude of our surrounding natural beauty. Reserve a building, program space, or the whole Center. Let Rowe be part of your next conference, church retreat, professional training, board meeting, family reunion or wedding.
Every summer Rowe plays host to a number of thriving summertime camps and communities. Rowe offers youth camps for ages 8 – 19 as well as a variety of adult and family retreats. Rooted in the values of self determination, playfulness, creativity, inclusion and acceptance, you’re bound to feel right at home. In the seclusion and beauty of nature, without distractions of the outside world, our engaging workshops and transformative experiences allow people to open up to each other in profound and new ways, forming connections that last a lifetime.

In Person Programs
Since its inception in 1924 as a summer camp for youth and young adults, The Rowe Center has existed as a place of acceptance, learning and growth for individuals of all ages. In the 1970’s The Rowe Center expanded into year round adult programing, and in 2020 The Rowe Center expanded online.
Regardless of how we go about fulfilling it, our mission has remained the same: To make the world a better place. To provide a container for a wide variety of ideas and experiences. To create an environment that is safe and welcoming while encouraging individuals to look deep within themselves and explore sometimes uncomfortable topics.
