Who We Are

The Uplands is a not-for-profit retreat center that hosts groups seeking renewal, learning and growth. Its mission is to provide a venue for learning and restorative retreats for groups that care for others or work to advance positive change in the world. The Center offers meeting spaces for team-building, sharing and innovation, as well as spa amenities, yoga, meditation and creative arts studios, all amid the peaceful serenity of a natural setting of breathtaking beauty. We work closely with you to co-create intimate, multi-day retreats to achieve your group's goals.

Bringing new ideas and programs to life by offering leaders of educational, social and environmental initiatives a venue for innovative program design and collaboration.
