To Existing Communities: If you have held community-wide retreats, we'd like to hear from you! Some questions: - Did you go off-site? If you didn't go off-site, how did you create an environment that feels special? - Where did funds come from? Individual contributions? Community funding? A combination? - What specific topics have been most successful? (Note: we have no specific problems to focus on, but would like to deepen the community experience) - What did you do to attract high attendance? - Did you use outside facilitators? Or if you used internal facilitators, what are some suggestions? - How did you incorporate kids in your program? - Do you hold them annually? - What hasn't worked? Our seven-year-old community has never held an official retreat, although we've had spectacular annual camping trips where typically half the members attend. To build on these successes, we're considering offering a community-wide retreat. We'd love to learn from others' experiences!
