​Our facility offers limited technology, allowing visitors a space to reconnect and unwind. This can be a powerful experience - one that fosters human connectedness, listening and learning
REDEFINING  "RETREAT"

 

​The retreat centre and land was obtained in 2009 by Univeral Rehabilitation Services (URSA) with the single purpose to create a retreat space where all individuals, regardless of abilities, can experience the beauty of a relaxing and calming retreat.   URSA has welcomed individuals with developmental disabilities and thier families with a space specially designed to suit their needs.                                       
To cover the cost of the centre, and to ensure that we can continue to make our space available to all, we invite groups who share our values of inclusiveness to visit and rent our centre for private bookings.
