Approximately 70% of camps offer some type of out-of-summer retreat service, from complex internal programs to simple rental agreements. The growth in retreat activity has been remarkable and yet little is known about the field or shared with providers and those considering it as an expansion option. This session will explore the phenomenon, discuss what distinguishes a good from great operator and how best to align your mission with the elusive pot of gold that some believe is the singular reason to operate a retreat center. Included in the session will be key outcomes from the first of its kind study of Jewish Retreat Centers. If you run a center or are considering the possibility come along and be part of the conversation.
