Scholarships may be available, and can be applied for using the registration link above. The number of scholarships are limited, and completion and submission of the registration form does not guarantee that a scholarship will be available. Detailed orientation info, including travel instructions, will be sent to all registrants. Rides are available and you can specify your need for a ride on the registration form. Meals and linens are included for weekenders. Single rooms available on a first-come- first-served basis. Meals are buffet-style, with a vegetarian option.

Alternative Lodging: Super 8 Old Saybrook, (860-399-6273), rate for double-room approximately $70 per night. We ask that you bring any questions or concerns exclusively to the Chairpersons rather than the Incarnation Center. Inquiries can be submitted to About the Incarnation Center: The Incarnation Center is tucked away within the heart of Connecticut's peace and tranquility. The Incarnation property covers more than 700 acres boasting a mile long spring fed lake, miles of trails exploring throughout wooded surroundings and facilities that make it the ideal setting for retreats. Established in 1886 as a coed summer camp, the center has evolved to facilitate retreats and conferences of all manners in its rustic and Adirondack style since the 1960s. Peaceful and private, the Lodge is a perfect venue for 12-step programs. More information is available at Questions about the retreat, registration, or scholarships may be sent to We are always looking for volunteers to serve as speakers and to help with setup and activity planning. If you're interested in providing service to your fellowship, please contact We hope to see you there!
