Providers Weekend 2014: Now Free to Newcomers!

Please reserve May 16 to 18 now for an enlarged and far-ranging Provider’s Weekend at Enchanted Hills Retreat in Napa. For nearly 20 years the LightHouse has hosted this signature event as the one place in the Bay Area where teachers, managers, program staff and students entering the blindness field can meet and network throughout a long weekend.

When: May 16–18, 2014
Where: Enchanted Hills Retreat
Cost: $100.00 (free for first-time participants)

May is the perfect month to swim in our heated pool, meet others in the warm evening around the campfire, and wrestle with bigger questions that take a bit more time than available around the office water cooler. You’ll meet service providers working in the field of blindness from all over northern California, in workshops, presentations. You’ll exchange practical ideas and build a network you might not otherwise have. You might even find your next job.

You will have the opportunity to stay in a lakeside cabin, the lodge or one of our fully accessible cabins next to the dining hall. The cost for the weekend, including all meals, is $100.00. And new for this year is a special incentive for first-time attendees of Provider’s Weekend – have the weekend on us. The free retreat is the least we can do to honor those who are helping shape the blindness field across northern California.

In addition to discussing philosophies, trends and issues we face in providing services for people with visual impairments, you can enjoy the heated swimming pool, a lake for boating, trails for hiking and savory meals provided by a wonderful kitchen staff. You’ll learn from your peers, relax in a natural setting with many educational and recreational opportunities. And it’s not unheard of to find a drop or two of Napa wine from the neighborhood, too.

“I had a great time [at Provider’s Weekend 2012]…a truly a mind opening experience…”
-Roger Tower

So mark your calendars now and reserve space before it’s gone. We expect with the flood of new faces we’ll fill all available cabins well before May.
