SCA Sumer 2021 Retreat
Retreat Date: The Summer 2021 Retreat will be held on Friday, September 10, through Sunday, September 12, 2021.
The focus of this Retreat will be Step 1, Step 2, and Healthy Sexuality.
The Retreat is sold out. However, cancellations do occur and spots open, so we have a "waitlist" for fellows who mail in their registrations. Your check is only deposited if a spot opens up for you to attend.
The retreats are reasonably priced at $235 and are subsidized by SCA New York fundraisers. Members can apply for a scholarship supported by our chapter's generous donations.

A retreat creates a special period of time for connection, community, silence, rest, simplicity, and contemplation. It can be both a “time out” from life’s daily stresses as well as an opportunity to deepen one’s experience of self and our connection to our program.
This is a closed event for members of SCA only. Advanced registration is required and the retreat fills up quickly as there is limited space. Please join us and be part of the fun, connection, sharing of recovery, and serenity.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION: In order to attend this retreat, you MUST provide proof of vaccination at the time of registration or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the start of the retreat (or departure from Grand Central).
If you are vaccinated, please include a copy for proof of vaccination when you mail in your registration form.
COST AND ACCOMMODATIONS: The cost of the retreat is reasonable at $235; some scholarships up to $100 are available with need.
We'll have three meals a day, snacks, tea, and coffee. Vegetarian options at every meal. Please feel free to bring any special dietary items and snacks. Refrigeration is available for our use.
Everyone has their own private room. Most have shared bathrooms (with private stalls for showers and toilets).
GETTING THERE ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10: You can provide your own transportation or ride up with a group from Grand Central Metro North (it's the New Haven stop on the New Haven line – round-trip cost is approximately $35).
Take the 3:02 Metro-North train from Grand Central to New Haven. From there a school-bus coach will take you to woodsy Ivoryton, CT (about 30 minutes beyond New Haven).
The retreat begins on Friday evening (September 10) at approximately 6 pm with dinner.
GETTING HOME ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 12: The retreat ends on Sunday afternoon (September 12) with a Quaker-style gratitude meeting.
Our bus will return you to New Haven in time for the 4:38 pm Metro-North train back to Grand Central (arrives 6:50 pm).
SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS ARE LIMITED: Scholarships of up to $100 will be given out based on the availability of funds and in the order in which requests are received. Please consider donating to the scholarship fund! As much as possible, the retreat committee attempts to offer partial scholarships to those who request them. These scholarships are made possible thanks to the generous donations from SCA New York fellows who can afford to help others.
IMPORTANT CANCELLATION POLICY: Full payment for the retreat is due August 16, 2021. If you must cancel (we hope you won’t!), you will get a full refund if you notify us by August 16. After August 16, refunds are not possible unless we are able to sell your spot to someone on the waiting list.
