What if You Don’t Want to Wait?

Did you know Trinity Center frequently hosts Groups Retreats that are open to the public?

Phrases we often hear from departing guests are “I love it here; I can’t wait until our retreat next year!” or “It was great but we didn’t have enough time to enjoy the property!”  But you really don’t have to wait until your particular group returns on an annual retreat or pine for missed free time.  Trinity Center hosts several new and recurring events that have open registration and welcome new participants.

Anytime you visit our blog, check the right side bar for advertisements of upcoming retreats open to the public, or visit our (ahem) “Upcoming Retreats Open to the Public” page.  These notices are our way of spreading the word that there may be new and unusual ways to visit one of your favorite places, or to make new friends while participating in a beloved activity.

Sometimes you have an opportunity to get in on something missed.  Occasionally a guest will catch a glimpse of an interesting activity and will tell us they “always wanted to attend a [fill in the blank] but didn’t know in time.”  Once in a while, Groups ask us to post vacancy notices after a registration window closes because one or more attendees have an unexpected change of plans.
