What We Do

Serenity in the Heart of the Catskills

The Uplands Center, located 2.5 hours outside NYC on 290 acres of sweeping farm and woodlands in the western Catskills, hosts retreats for groups seeking renewal, learning, and growth.

The Center provides an amenity-rich setting for innovative program design, brainstorming and co-creation for social service organizations as they develop or refine their mission. The extensive array of restorative care programs and offerings also make the Center an ideal setting for groups whose mission is to serve others, including health care providers, educators, first responders and social service providers.

Whether the focus is caregivers or social changemakers, the Center’s many offerings and serene setting connect guests with the mutually nourishing, growth-promoting power of nature and the value of sustainability.


Types of Retreats

Renewal and Growth

Our Renewal and Growth Retreats serve those who, in the course of serving others, become depleted or disconnected from their own mind-body-spirit needs and seek restoration, realignment and renewal. Such groups include health care practitioners, educators, first responders and social service providers. Learn More
