“Other places that offer retreats and programs have such a cold, generic, corporate feeling to their spaces. Here feels like home, like coming BACK home. It feels like it’s Thanksgiving here every day—receiving delicious food, blessings, community, abundance. My mind keeps wondering, ‘how can I come back here?’ because it really feels like home.”
The Uplands Center is a not-for-profit Retreat Center located 2.5 hours outside NYC on 290 acres of tranquil farm and woodlands in the sweeping hills of the western Catskills. The Center hosts retreats for groups seeking renewal, learning, and growth.
Its mission is (1) to empower social change-makers by providing a setting for innovative program design, co-creation, and brainstorming and (2) to provide restorative care to those who serve others, including first responders, health care providers, educators, and social service providers.
The Uplands Center serves as a model of environmental sustainability and offers an array of programs that intimately connect guests and the wider community with the mutually nourishing, growth-promoting power of nature.
