For Event Organizers
Be our guests
Well maintained, high-quality gear; attentive staff; delicious food; your perfect, memory-making hike – our staff are committed to making the most of your group's time in the forest. Getting away is an investment. Let us help you design a pinnacle experience, whether you’re bringing a class of 30, a wedding of 150 or a group retreat.
Not only will all of your diverse guests enjoy the spectacular surroundings here, they’ll have the chance to really focus on the event itself, and the things that really matter: relationships, reflection, and joy.
The Centre offers event packages but you probably want to chat with our Events Booking Coordinator first, so you get your ideal experience while you’re here.
